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

No day is ever the same and there are still amazing, talented people to learn from and work with.

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Do the same as in 2018, probably.

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

Doghouse Diary – diary that uses machine learning to work out when I'm likely to mess up the co-ordination with the home diary, taking into account where I am, who I am with and predicting the outcome.

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

Every day when I can't be in two places at once.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Greg James for showcasing our Christmas TV Times marketing campaign inadvertently to his thousands of followers.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

Sit down, take a breath and plan the launch of Doghouse Diary while drawing up a list of people and causes we'd like to try to help.

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

The Premier League – its quality doesn't match its wealth.

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

Differences of opinion. They are healthy and debate is good – it doesn't have to boil over into hatred.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

Suits – mostly because of Donna.

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

Whoever the Doctor Who fans will be most excited by and who will broaden the existing fanbase to the widest group possible.

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

The person who dictates a major tech stack's decision making - I imagine there is an individual much like the Wizard of Oz behind a curtain, twiddling buttons.
