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

Towie.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

I'm really hoping to say "laddering up" a lot less.

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

To turn the wobbly old coffee table in the spare bedroom into an actual home office.

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

I'd swap with Mark Cripps, chief marketing officer of The Economist. First, because I'd be in New York and, second, I think if we all spent a little more time in our clients' shoes, we'd all be a lot wiser.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Caffeine.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Depends on if I've been out on the Thursday.

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

Referendums, for obvious reasons.

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

The Sky satellite dish. Represents everything that's currently wrong with modern football.

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

Turning up for my best mate's wedding an hour late to be greeted by the happy couple walking out of the church.

What do you do to stay match fit?

I've just learned to swim "properly", which is a bit of a revelation.

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

The theme to Bullseye. You can't beat a bit of bully.
