Chief executive, Circle IT

What achievement are you most proud of?

Presenting on stage with Michael Dell in Brussels to 600 other companies.

What has been the biggest change in the channel since you started working in it?

In 15 years the explosion of mobility and social media is uncomprehendable and present a unique opportunity for all companies working in the channel.

What three things could you not live without?

Mobile phone, gym and alcohol (why?!).

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?

Forgetting names is the worst thing for me and can be really embarrassing.

What do your family think you do all day?

Travel around the country having fun as I always find a way to have a laugh when I'm out and about.

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

Kylie. Simply because I'm taller than her.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Clubbing, even though I'm too old for it!

What would be your first act if you were made Prime Minister?

Arrest the MPs who fiddled their expenses; not a good example to set!

Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?

Really good. We grew Circle IT again and gained some exciting new customers.

If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would you do?

I would work in sport, personal training or something where I could cause people pain.

What major issues will the channel face in 2016?

Diversification is always the challenge as far as I'm concerned; IT is constantly on the move and you need to evolve quickly or risk going pop.
