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

Because that tiny unquenchable flame of creative optimism still burns the odour off the bullshit.

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

Dangle suet balls for my blue tits.

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

It’s called Virgin Galactic. And while it’s kinda launched before, in 2019 it will finally launch into space. And I intend to shout that news live via social media from the stratosphere.

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

6.25pm. Tuesday 18 September 2018. Standing on stage at the world premiere of Nureyev, hoping that the very discerning audience would be impressed by a movie it had taken us four years to create.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

I’ve never really warmed to pictures of other people’s hats, cats, cakes and vacations.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

I did indeed. And I’ve tried to improve as many lives as possible with my winnings.

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

Weepy mawkishness. Especially at Christmas. Other emotions are available.

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

Puerility. (See Mark Denton for details.) Parp.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

The American Office. Flawlessly written.

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

Forced to sit through an entire torturous episode, just like the bloody rest of us.

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

A student on their very first day.
