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

That checked jacket I wore when we launched Ozone.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

That we remain close to our European friends and allies.

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

To bridge the gap between the good words advertisers say and where they put their money.

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

I’d swap with Marc Pritchard and I might make a few tweaks to his media plan.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

My cocker spaniel, Ludwig. That guy is wise.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Picking up my daughters from their after-school club and going to the local Italian restaurant, where we all have exactly the same thing every week. And a glass or two of their wonderfully rustic Chianti.

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

The clickthrough rate.

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

The Fitbit that tells me how much exercise I'm not doing.

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

That checked jacket.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Walking the dog.

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

I'd strut on to Still Here from Gramatik and then wildly miss the board with every throw.
