How significant an issue do you see the lack of women in the UK IT channel?
It's a really significant issue because it's completely unrepresentative of the number of women working in the UK companies who are buying the IT from the channel, making our industry unreflective of the companies we sell to. I believe in recruiting solely on merit, not a gender benchmark but I know women have a lot to offer the UK channel - given the opportunity.
