Managing director, Clipsham IT
What was your dream career as a child?
To be a Hollywood actress!
What has been your personal highlight of 2019?
A fabulous five-day party in Spain for a good friend's 60th birthday.
Which famous person deserves a (gentle) slap?
Donald Trump - but it would not be gentle, more like a beating! Why? Because he is an ignorant, stupid and dangerous idiot.
What two things (apart from family) would you grab if your house was on fire?
My dog Harley and my photo albums.
Which of your 2019 predictions have come to pass?
I am not going to win the lottery.
What TV show have you binge watched this year?
How has 2019 been from a business perspective?
Very successful - hard work but worth it.
What annoys you most about your commute?
Nothing - it is 30ft from my house to my office!
If you could witness one past event, what would it be?
VE Day - it must have been incredible to celebrate the end of Hitler's regime and the war.
How do you explain the channel to people?
It is very simple - a wholesaler (distie), a supermarket (channel partner), a shopper (end user)!
What have been your favourite and least favourite partner conference destinations?
My favourite was San Francisco, and least favourite was London.
What is the biggest challenge facing the channel in 2020?
I still think the biggest challenge is adapting business models to cloud-based sales and the impact that has on revenues and compensation.
