What's your big ambition for the year ahead?

To grow the business, to change how people think about experience and to go into space. That last one might be a rollover from when I was six.

Your mission: make advertising a desirable career for young people. What do you do?

Don’t treat them like "millennials", whatever that really means. Putting labels on people and thinking you’ve cracked it won’t work. Embrace their opinions, give them great work to do and support them, regardless of who they are or where they come from.

Which industry leader has most impressed you with their ability to transform a business?

Jack Welch – anyone who can grow a business that much is nothing but impressive.

What's your most annoying professional trait?

You’d have to ask my colleagues. On second thoughts, we only have 600 characters, so maybe don’t.

And what's your most embarrassing personal habit?

Undisclosed.

You've invented yourself an AI assistant. What's the first thing you'd ask it to do?

Answer the rest of these questions.

Which app would you redownload first after a digital detox?

Skynet. Wait, that’s the robot talking. WhatsApp. Definitely. Does anyone live without it?

What's your side-hustle?

If I told you that, it wouldn’t be a hustle.

What's your fantasy Campaign headline?

Bhattacharya in space.

What's the soundtrack to your life?

Ghostbusters – who you gonna call?
