Now in its thirteenth year, his gem of a website has some great new offerings for Easter. Here, he tells us what makes for a life well-lived.

Where do you call home?

Currently north-west London. But in due course I will be heading to Wales, to where I grew up, with my wife and three children.

Which excites you most: breakfast, lunch or supper?

Hosting a Saturday lunch, with good wine and great friends, that stretches long into the afternoon.

What is your favourite hotel in the world?

There are too many good options to choose from – and, in reality, the bucket list is longer than the list of ones I’ve actually stayed in. But I would say the Rosewood in Guangzhou in China was mind-boggling; the elegance, fine detail and decor contrasting with the fact that you are 100 floors up in a modern tower.

You have unexpected spare time on your hands: do you fill it with a podcast or novel?

So hard to choose. Nothing beats a good novel: I recently finished Demon Copperhead. But I also love a podcast. Blinkist is a fantastic app that condenses books and podcasts into smaller chunks.

To what or where would you book tickets tomorrow if you could?

If money was no object, I would love to experience the Orient Express. I love to travel by train.

What is your most prized possession?

I made a tree house-style-bed for my son. It was made completely from scratch, with many trips to B&Q. Although it has little monetary value, it’s quite sentimental.

What are you currently binge-watching?

I wish I watched a bit more TV. But with a young family and being a self-confessed workaholic, I find that TV is at the bottom of my list. However, great things I’ve seen would have to be Your Honour and True Detective.

Date night in or date night out?

Out – I think it’s really important to try and get out as a couple. My wife and I both work hard and it’s important to make time that feels different from being at home.

Who in the world do you most admire?

I struggle with this question as there are lots of people whom I admire for various reasons. Titans like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs are close to the top of the list. Although I find people much closer to my work circles and friends with businesses super-inspiring.

What is the last thing you bought?

Although it’s more of a work purchase, it’s something I’m very excited about. It is a ribbon printer, so that we can now offer personalised ribbon for Not Another Bill customers and corporate clients.
