n/s

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

The false assertion that people won't pay for news.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

That estimates for people paying for news will be blown out the water!

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

Continue the transformation of the Telegraph. Deliver the model of 10-1-23 (10 million registrants and 1 million subscribers by 2023) that centres on 1 million people paying (proper amounts of money) for our journalism to prove that the Telegraph has a long and healthy future ahead of it.

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

The Campaign A List editor so that I can write the questions next time.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

If I were to name one, it wouldn't be fair on all my other friends in the industry.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

Where has the week gone?

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

Every single one of those ad tech companies that starts a pitch with: "We've got unique and proprietary data that will increase your yield. Now, can I put my tags all over your website?"

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

Smart meters – dumbest invention ever.

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

Naming my biggest screw-up in writing in Campaign. Fortunately, I found the delete button before submitting.

What do you do to stay match fit?

Three HiiT classes, two 10k runs and one yoga class each week, always before 7am. Three children after 7am.

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

Fatboy Slim's Right Here, Right Now. Like me, it's a British classic. Or at least it reminds me of when I was starting out.
