Managing director, Network Group
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Elon Musk. I love his passion for progress and desire to change our reliance on fossil fuels.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
Cyber security. The channel is mad about it but the message is still not getting through to grassroots business.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Jesus, Charles Darwin and Galileo. That would make for interesting dinner conversation.
How has 2017 been for you?
Toughest year in my 30 years in business, to be honest. The pace of change and disruption is just relentless.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
Dinner at the Ritz. Over-priced and I did not know what tools to use.
Which global city best matches your personality?
Caerdydd (Cardiff of course!)
What would be your super-hero power?
Batman. I always wanted a secluded mansion and a car that nobody else has.
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… that some of their ideas are better than ours.
What makes you nervous?
That 30 seconds before getting on stage to do a talk or presentation.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Fruit. I can never get enough of it!
