10 questions with... Nick Constantinou, managing director of Nodes

To showcase the personalities of the people behind the media and marketing sector, The Drum speaks to individuals who are bringing something a little different to the industry and talks to them about what insights and life experience they can offer the rest of us. This week's 10 Questions are put to Nick Constantinou, managing director of Nodes.

A Porsche 911, Ferrari Testarossa and Dennis Bergkamp.
