What has been your personal highlight of 2020?

I have three. Seeing son #1 get accepted on a Prince's Trust course, seeing son #2 get his job back at Harry Potter Studios after being made redundant during COVID, and joining Inifinigate UK.

Which three celebrities would you invite to a Zoom party?

David Jason: I love Only Fools and Horses. Sigourney Weaver: my favourite film is Aliens. Jürgen Klopp: I'm a big red.

What has been your guiltiest lockdown pleasure?

Red wine.

Which tech figurehead has inspired you most this year, and why?

Elon Musk - there are no boundaries of innovation and determination, if you have money.

What piece of technology, or app, have you not been able to do without during the pandemic?

Zoom and Amazon.

If you could be anyone else for a week, who would you be and what would you do? 

I would be Toto Wolfe. I would then get my autistic son a job at Mercedes as his passion is to work in F1.

Do you miss face-to-face events?

Yes.

How will COVID leave its mark on the way the channel operates long term?

It has changed the way we do business. It's also highlighted how important technology is in both our personal and business lives in terms of how we communicate. Without it right now the world would be a very lonely place.
