Director, Partner Business & Development, Microsoft UK
What was the worst job you have ever had?
I worked for a fast food company for one day when I was in college. That was enough.
Which actor would you pick to play you in a movie of your life?
Sandra Bullock, because she is clever, fun and doesn't seem to take any nonsense off anyone.
What do you do as your party trick?
No party tricks, unfortunately.
What is your favourite chocolate bar?
Rococo Sea Salt Milk Chocolate Wafers.
What has been the highlight of your career to date?
At WPC this year Guy Gregory tweeted a picture of me on stage delivering the opening. My son retweeted the picture and commented saying how inspiring I was for him. That was the absolute best.
Has 2014 been a good, bad or ugly year?
2014 has been a great year. We have strong opportunities for partnership with our channel and it's exciting times for sure.
How would you explain the IT channel to a stranger without boring them to death?
We help people and businesses do more and do it more efficiently.
Aside from the channel, my dream career would be... international spy. My powers of observation are pretty keen.
What major issues will the channel face in 2015?
Keeping up with the pace of change in the market is one of the greatest challenges and opportunities in our business.
