That most problems are solved by picking up the phone and talking to someone.

Education for every child on the planet and clean abundant water for all.

My biggest mistake...

Oh I’ve made many, but this one is worth re-telling: I’d just been promoted from runner to production assistant. I was organising the telecine and ‘Harry’ bookings (now that dates me) for the Head of Television of a big ad agency. When she very gently queried why I’d gone ahead and planned everything without consulting her team. I tentatively replied that I’d assumed they’d be able to provide rushes on a certain date and want delivery on a certain date. She replied “only idiots assume, and I take it you are not an idiot”.

Last supper...

Ideally ribs, beans, coleslaw, but more likely to be something through a straw.
