Group managing director, Trilogy Technologies
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Elon Musk. What a visionary, from space travel to sustainable energy production! A close friend of mine works for him at SpaceX and a visit to the facility is high on my bucket list.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
Speed of change and ability/cost for companies to adapt.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Beethoven - a musical visionary. What would he compose now?; Charlotte Bronte - how would she view women's place in world today?; Oscar Wilde - "To define is to limit".
How has 2017 been for you?
Extremely busy. We are investing heavily in our cloud and security competencies. As the pace of change accelerates it's a challenge we get to help our clients with on a regular basis.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
Well, Irish food is among the best in the world and I was lucky to be invited by a long-time channel friend (thanks Emer) to savour the tasting lunch menu at Greenhouse in Dublin. #AmuseBouche
Which global city best matches your personality?
Paris. A combination of art, culture and style.
What would be your super-hero power?
Superman speed so I could do a bit of space travel!
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… they highlight your imperfections. But perhaps that's the best thing?
What makes you nervous?
Waiting for election results.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
