Chief executive, Natilik
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
What John Chambers did with Cisco is pretty amazing. He joined as head of sales when the company was turning over less than $200m and employed 500 people. As he retires this year, the company now has more than 70,000 people and turnover of $50bn. Not bad!
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
Our industry does not suffer from a lack of talk!
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
John Lennon, Sir Winston Churchill and Steve Jobs.
How has 2017 been for you?
Amazing! A 10th consecutive year of growth for Natilik and a successful resettling of my family to Guildford after two decades of living in London.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
Our monthly company lunch is pretty extravagant - 150+ people sharing lunch all in one location is pretty awesome!
Which global city best matches your personality?
London. Vibrant, resilient, tolerant and always looking to develop.
What would be your super-hero power? The ability to teleport myself and others; there is always so much to do and so little time!
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is...when they have no value to add and so sell purely on price, winning business at zero margin.
What makes you nervous?
Our politicians' current approach to Brexit.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
