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

Great question! Well, you might have seen that at Spotify we #loveAds. We believe that we focus too much on the negative when, in fact, advertising is the biggest enabler of content for free and we should celebrate that!

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Let me think about that one…

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

Clean It Up: entirely focused on eliminating plastic from the world. Including cleaning it up, recycling and lobbying to ban single-use plastics.

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

When I made the jump to sales from agency after 20 years, it was hard not to feel vulnerable. No matter how much you research, it is still a leap into the unknown. I have made mistakes and been caught out in this new, fast-paced world but that's why I did it – to learn.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Anyone who posts pictures of animals, ideally dogs and cats, gets my vote.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

Celebrate a lot! Then I will try and do some good with it.

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

University degrees are overrated. As a benchmark they restrict diversity intakes and are not always the best measure of a person. Let's open things up to be more flexible about who we bring into the business.

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

Rest and inactivity. Let's not just go into sleep mode, but shut down completely.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

Gomorrah! Check it out, simply some of the best TV out there. Ali MacCallum will back me up.

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

David Cameron – he can go back in time and sort this Brexit mess out.

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

Matt Teeman. Lovely chap, slim legs that mean he can carry fashion off as well, so thats a bonus.
