What has been your personal highlight of 2020?
There are three things: seeing the team's resilience, team work and innovation working together; seeing the teenagers looking out for one another; and finally seeing my nine-year-old daughter scoring the first goals of her football career. One was a left-foot tap, followed by a right rifle into the bottom corner.

James Corden, Nasser Hussain and Jose Mourinho.

Which tech figurehead has inspired you most this year, and why?
Matt Sanderson, positive, strong leadership.
What piece of technology, or app, have you not been able to do without during the pandemic?
Teams, and WhatsApp for funnies and morale.
If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do?
Boris Johnson. I would put in place clearer, honest communication without the spin and soundbites.
Do you miss face-to-face events?
Yes very much. There is only so much you can do on a screen.
How will COVID leave its mark on the way the channel operates long term?
