Leaders from Softcat, XMA, ANS, DTP and Cloudreach reveal how their cats or dogs are helping (or hindering) them as they turn their bedrooms into boardrooms

With the UK now officially in lockdown, large swathes of the UK channel are in self-isolation at home.

CRN (and sister publication Channel Partner Insight) continues to track the latest news and views on the COVID-19 crisis in its daily blog here.

In these bleak times, to help lighten the mood we asked some of the industry's top leaders to send us any fun snaps of their pets either helping or hindering their efforts as they transform their bedrooms into boardrooms.

Pet: Tulip

Owner: Paul Shannon, CEO, ANS

Help or hindrance during self-isolation:

Bonus comment: "I did Joe Wicks this morning with the kids, which I never normally do (as in exercise)!"
