Sales director, Cisilion
What was your dream career as a child?
What has been your personal highlight of 2019?
Which famous person deserves a (gentle) slap?
Jeremy Corbyn, because he'll scare off our best entrepreneurs who are vital for growth, innovation and future opportunities.
What two things (apart from family) would you grab if your house was on fire?
My wallet and phone out of instinct.
Which of your 2019 predictions have come to pass?
That Brexit would dominate the news and Boris Johnson would become prime minister.
What TV show have you binge watched this year?
How has 2019 been from a business perspective?
Great. Our business has continued to grow, we've hired some amazing talent and are working with and providing services to many industry leading businesses.
What annoys you most about your commute?
Not much as it's a 15-minute walk. However, rain is probably my biggest annoyance.
If you could witness one past event, what would it be?
England winning the football World Cup as it hasn't happened so far in my lifetime.
How do you explain the channel to people?
The bridge between vendors and end users. We are an extension of the vendors we partner with and trusted advisors to our clients, ensuring they have the right solutions and services to drive their businesses forward.
What have been your favourite and least favourite partner conference destinations?
My favourite has been Las Vegas and least favourite would be Dallas.
What is the biggest challenge facing the channel in 2020?
People and skills. People, because great people are what make and differentiate our business. And skills because the industry is constantly changing, and we need to stay ahead of the curve.
