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

The sleepless nights that come with super-young kids.

What’s your biggest hope for the decade ahead?

That we tackle climate change quickly enough to make a difference.

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

Making marketing a force to change business, not just create communications.

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

The lady with my job in our China HQ. The speed of culture out there blows my mind.

Who is your best friend in the industry and why?

Nadya.

What do you think the Friday feeling is?

A sense of all jobs done. I've felt this at least twice.

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

The 24/7 working culture. It is rubbish for creativity, productivity and family life.

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

Netflix autoplay. It is rubbish for creativity, productivity and family life.

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

I'm happy to embrace failure. But there's no way I'm publicising the real ones.

What do you do to stay match fit?

I try to get out of the bubble.

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

I came last at the Wunderman Thompson strategy team darts night. So the Monty Python theme tune.
