Give us one reason why advertising is still brilliant in 2019.

Well, for me, I get to work with my best friends every day. And sometimes I get to try KFC food at concept stage. #winning

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Win a pitch.

You decide to launch a brand. What is it called and what does it do?

The world needs more nut-milk brands. So I would launch one called Coconutty. It’s brand purpose will be to remove all nuts from politics and bring about world peace, naturally.

When was the last time you felt professionally vulnerable and why?

When I couldn’t figure out how to use Snapchat. But nobody uses Snapchat any more, so who was more vulnerable?

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Rorygallery. Provides an access-all-areas view into life down under, parenting and the trials of supporting Aston Villa.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

Invest in blockchain. However, if it’s made it into the A List questionnaire, it might it be a fad? Nah – all in.

Name one thing you think is criminally overrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

Complexity. In our industry, people seem to gravitate towards those who complicate everything. In culture, we adore complex TV narratives that require energy, attention and huge emotional investment. My brain is tired, give me some simple slides and Love Island (and the time back I spent watching Lost).

Name one thing you think is criminally underrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

Simplicity. Saying less and encouraging the simple answers and insights requires bravery in our industry. KFC xmas? Chicken is better than turkey. Not rocket science, people.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

Lost.

Enough's enough: it's time the next Doctor Who was…

Watchable.

If you weren't you, who in the industry would you like to be?

The Old Spice guy.
