I can recite the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll: "Twas bryllyg, and ye slythy toves...".
What is your favourite chocolate bar?
I prefer my chocolate as an indulgent mug of hot chocolate.

Launching VTN in the UK.
Has 2014 been a good, bad or ugly year?
Good because I have my dream job developing the VTN programme for the UK and helping my favourite partners grow their businesses.
How would you explain the IT channel to a stranger without boring them to death?
