If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do? I would probably choose Indiana Jones, go get some bad guys, win the girl and have a lot of fun in the meantime!

Has 2011 been as bad as everyone said it would be? Not for Teneo although it hasn’t exactly been easy either.
What would you have as your last meal? Dinner with Heston Blumenthal.
Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with? Bruno Mars. This would gain me huge kudos with my son.
Have any of your predictions come true this year? I don’t really sit down and make any big predictions each year. I make lots of little predictions that I will complete things called tasks. Mostly successfully.
What do you see as the channel’s biggest challenge in 2012? Staying solvent in this economy while becoming relevant in a cloudy world.
