What has been your personal highlight of 2020?

How our 120-plus staff rose to the challenge of remote working in March, and how as a company we furloughed no-one, paid our VAT, and helped our customers reduce their cloud spend.

Which three celebrities would you invite to a Zoom party?

Jeff Lynne of my favourite band ELO, Stephen Fry as he makes me laugh and he likes history, Bill Gates - his Gates Notes shows he is not just a software geek.

What has been your guiltiest lockdown pleasure?

Eating too much homemade Stracciatella ice cream.

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

Bill Gates with his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - "All lives have equal value."

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

Microsoft Teams.

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

I'm quite happy as myself.

Do you miss face-to-face events?

Yes, I miss networking and meeting new people.

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

The importance of staff wellbeing - it's not all about work.
