What achievement are you most proud of?
It's still a work in progress, but my daughter is becoming a lovely young lady and I like to think part of that is down to me.
What has been the biggest change in the channel since you started working in it?
Less socialising and more financial pressure.
What do your family think you do all day?
My mum tells everyone that I am in MI6 because she doesn't understand what channel development is or why I go to lots of "interesting" locations such as Beirut, Lagos, Tel Aviv and so on.
Who is your ultimate celeb crush?
At the moment it has to be Tea Leoni (Madam Secretary).
What is your guilty pleasure?
There are too many to list and none of them illegal! A little bit of what you fancy does you good.
Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?
Another great year from a business point of view but the weather has been awful!
If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would you do?
I've always fancied running a pub or restaurant.
What major issues will the channel face in 2016?
As always there is a lot of change afoot. Larger players can navigate through it, smaller ones are agile enough to survive but the ones in the middle will feel pressure.
