1) If you could go back in time and have one conversation with one person, dead or alive, who would it be and what would you discuss?
Sergey Brin and Larry Page, co-founders of Google. I am fascinated by the way in which Google have created productivity and growth through investment in the wellbeing of its workforce.
It would be great to discuss how the working landscape of Silicon Valley could be integrated into the UK professional office environment. Plus, I am sure he may have some good answers for these questions.
2) Which single element of any city in the world that you have visited would you like to see transplanted into Birmingham?
Central Park. I visited New York in January and the contrast between the busy, energetic pandemonium of the city and the tranquillity and peace of the park was incredible.
To have that much green space bang in the centre of a city is a fantastic way to escape and recharge.
I'm eager to see what the future holds for Birmingham and excited by the Smithfield markets redevelopment and how this will redefine the landscape of the east of the city.
3) Which technological innovation would you happily see consigned to history and what would you like to see invented which doesn't yet exist?
I am showing my age here but I just can't get my head around people at live events who spend the whole time recording it, taking selfies and tweeting. So for that reason, I am afraid I'd have to bin the selfie stick.
In terms of new inventions for me, I could desperately do with some type of odd sock finder. I seem to have to purchase a new pair every other week no matter how hard I try to keep them in pairs.
4) Think about who your ideal dinner guests might be but instead you can only invite their relatives. Who would you choose and what would you ask them?
I would invite the architect Gaudi's father to a) ask whether he thinks the continued works to the Basílica de la Sagrada Família reflected his son's vision and b) whether he could fix my temperamental boiler as, according to history, he made them for a living.
5) There are many 'National Days', some more obscure than others, but which one would you like to create that doesn't already exist?
We all work incredibly hard in the UK and Birmingham continues to lead the way with the region enjoying a sixth consecutive year of export growth.
It would be fantastic to implement a National Family Day when we could all down tools, turn off the emails and shut up shop to spend some time with our families and friends, enjoying everything Birmingham has to offer.
For me, you can't beat Cannon Hill park on a sunny day taking on the crazy golf with a nice cold beer.
