Bye-bye the decade with no name. What are you relieved to draw a line under?

Considering it was the overwhelming majority of AnalogFolk's 11-year history, I will wave goodbye fondly. But am geared up for decade number two.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

Less nonsense from politicians.

And what’s top of your professional to-do list for the 2020s?

The first 10 years of AnalogFolk have been incredible. And largely fuelled by successfully progressing along a linear path. Bring on more non-linear initiatives.

You have to job swap with someone in our industry for one month. Who would it be with and why?

Claire Beale. Who else has a broader insight into what's happening outside of my AnalogFolk existence?

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

That's easy. And boring. Matt Dyke – 15 years as partners running businesses.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Celebration, anticipation or exhaustion. Depending on the week

Who or what would you put into room 101 and why?

People who say a fast no, rather than a slow yes.

If you could uninvent one piece of technology, what would you choose and why?

Microwave ovens. Changed food culture forever by prioritising speed over taste.

In the spirit of embracing failure… What has been your biggest screw-up?

Work-wise, when you are in a service business it always comes back to bad hires. Of course, I would never reveal the worst hire of all time.

What do you do to stay match fit?

It's a pretty boring answer. But the gym. Exercise keeps the blood flowing in both intense and less intense periods.

What would be your darts walk-on music and why?

Welcome to the Jungle – Guns n' Roses. I am absolutely not worthy of it but what an intro.
