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

This year we’re going to need boundless creativity and unwavering optimism and there’s no better industry than ours to rally together and deliver both by the bucketload.

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Create a technological utopia to do my expenses.

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

Minor Miracle. A cannabis-based, collagen-infused gin. It does everything.

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

On a regular basis. It’s fun to surf the waves of change – we must always make way for the new without forgetting lessons learned from the old.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Garyjanetti. Hollywood writer, executive producer of Will & Grace and Family Guy. Wickedly funny and often just wicked.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

Fund as many schools as I could for Dallaglio RugbyWorks. Then, with the spare change, buy a Ferrari 250 GT California Spider.

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

Zero-based budgeting – an often misused accounting tool from the 1970s. It gobbles up too much management time that could be focused on building the future.

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

Honesty. Hugely underrated by far too many companies for way too long, we’ve only scratched the surface.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

Classic West Wing is hard to beat.

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

RuPaul.

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

Kim Gehrig.
