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

Having to make the case for diversity.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

To end it alive and healthy.

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

To win in China.

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

I’d be Adrian Coleman so I could sign off all my expenses.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Karaoke pioneer and VCCP New York chief strategy officer Jonny Shaw, my partner in song. We met at BBH, moved as a pair to Grey and then founded Lucky Voice, the UK's premier private karaoke company. Now the band is back together.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

The first pint at the Greencoat.

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

Siri. Has anyone actually ever used it on purpose?

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

Video assistant referee. Slowly tearing the soul out of football.

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

Getting a demotion and final written warning for impersonating a distinguished agency founder during Nabs wooing week in 2002.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Keep working, keep competing, keep learning.

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

Gonna Fly Now, the Rocky theme by Bill Conti. It's the ultimate power-up tune.
