Mad Men (so well-written, so beautifully art directed and I'm in love with January Jones).
Sainsbury's \"feed your family for a fiver.\" (On-brand, on-strategy and brilliantly executed.)
Araldite. \"It also sticks handles to teapots.\" A timeless brand created on just one poster site.
Any thought of retirement. Ever.
Bruce Willis (my wife says).
I can tell you what was number one the week you were born.
Obsessively following most other runners in the London Marathon; Bruce Springsteen; the progress of a slow-growing hedge and the painful, lingering, calamitous collapse of New Labour.
A master switch that turns off every light and piece of kit in the house without affecting Sky+.
\"Had we but world enough, and time this coyness, lady, were no crime... But at my back I always hear Time's wingéd chariot hurrying near.\"
Eccleshare runs marathons as a hobby. And he's never shied away from an energy-sapping challenge professionally either. Having spent the most recent part of his career in charge of the European operation of one of the world's best networks, he's just changed direction dramatically, joining Clear Channel Outdoor to head all of its international operations outside the US. Clear Channel's revenue prospects have been problematic – but Eccleshare's share options will be lucrative if he wins through.
