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

Another decade without Liverpool winning the league (not that I’m saying it will be this season that changes, of course).

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

See above.

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

Deliver on the 10-1-23 strategy (10 million registrants and 1 million subscribers by 2023) for The Telegraph. I’ll work out the rest of the decade once that milestone has passed.

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

Steve Hatch. No one ever takes Facebook off the plan.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Sadly, I stopped having a best friend when I went to big school.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

It should be a slightly tired but satisfied feeling that the week's work is done, I’ve made it to the weekend and don’t have to work again until Monday.

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

After-work emails and presenteeism. Hopefully, it’s obvious.

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

Internet of things. I think we will look back and realise we went too far, there should be a limit to our connectivity.

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

Leaving a job that I loved to do something I found out I didn’t.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Meditate and box.

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

Live and Let Die (by Guns N' Roses, not Wings).
