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

Grexit. How could we become so utterly obsessed with bailouts and a nation potentially leaving the EU? Wait....

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

That we do a lot better than the decade behind us.

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

To make sure my personal to-do list gets stapled to the back of it.

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

Gio Compario. I reckon my singing would ruin his ads and he would quickly return the favour in my agency.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Richard Malbon. A unique combination of naval fortitude and Irish alacrity.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Two-and-a-half pints.

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

The "think it's ace then it turns out to be shit" boxset. You'll never get that time back.

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

The speaker function on Bluetooth headphones. The work of the devil.

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

A massive wardrobe malfunction with Maurice Levy and the Irish ambassador in Paris. It's a long story.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Five hundred burpees and a croissant.

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

Hold the Line by Toto. The only song to greet you as you step up to the oche.
