Cream or custard?
‘Custard Creams’. Why make it a choice?
Most wanted dinner party guest?
The late great Keith Floyd would have been terrific value and refreshingly un-PC. He’d have also brought a decent bottle of plonk – possibly half empty though.

3 words that describe your home?
A retro temple.
What do you enjoy most about working for Factor 3?
The variety and unpredictability. Different clients each with their own marketing challenges make for a stimulating environment for me and the team.
What do you do at Factor 3?
We’ve a relatively flat structure which means preparing strategy docs and pitching one day is balanced by the nitty gritty of reviewing client profitability and time recovery figures.
As a dyed in wool ‘suit’ (in a dyed woollen suit), I’ve never lost the feeling of expectation and pride in seeing effective marketing material prepared for a client doing the job we’ve intended of it. I love it when a communication plan comes together.

Nickname if you have one?

Where do you come from?
That’s funny. Someone recently asked me what planet I was from, accompanied by a look of disbelief. But that’s clients for you.
The first breath I took on this planet was in Guildford, Surrey.
The South will rise!
