Managing director, Logicalis UK
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Satya Nadella, chief executive of Microsoft, for his vision and execution in transitioning Microsoft's focus from Windows to Azure and almost doubling the share price in the process.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
The limited pool of skilled resources in rapidly growing technologies such as IoT, AI and machine learning.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Jesus Christ, Albert Einstein and William Wilberforce. Because perseverance, sacrifice and determination are all important lessons to learn, not only in business but in life and I think each of these individuals would have interesting, and maybe even contrasting, takes on those topics.
How has 2017 been for you?
Pretty good… so far.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
A charity St George's Day lunch for 12 guests. They always have an auction!
For me, the most amazing auction item was a signed Spurs shirt and a private chef to come and cook a meal for 10 in our home.
Which global city best matches your personality?
Melbourne, for its sunshine, sports and outdoor events.
What would be your super-hero power?
Superman's mode of travel! But definitely not his dress sense.
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… that too many sell on price alone.
What makes you nervous?
The unknown, such as the outcome of Brexit.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Italian, specifically spaghetti bolognese and pizza!
