GRAHAM MILLS
Managing director, Digitas Health

What was your biggest break?  
Meeting Jack (Jacqueline Nolan) at art school, we've worked together ever since.

What's the best and/or worst part of your job?  
Seeing great work or thinking makes my heart sing, missed opportunities not so much.

What's the view like from your office/work area?  
My door faces a wall and the window overlooks a rooftop bar. So I spend as much time as possible in the middle of the agency getting involved.

How long is a typical meeting with clients?  
One to two hours. The longer the better.

Does your office have a favorite lunch and/or after-hours place?  
The Churchill does a great Scotch egg and a pint.

What was your greatest professional challenge?  
Getting people to embrace the unexpected.

Where will you be in five years?  
Hopefully still in the middle of it—so far I haven't thought of anything else I'd rather do.

If you were to write a book, what would the title be?  
That was Fast
