Abolish tuition fees for university students - there should be no financial barriers to education.
Which channel or tech leader (outside of your own company) has impressed you most in 2022?
Alex Tatham - NSC Global. Alex impresses me every year, but to make such a big move when he could have stayed at Westcoast says so much about his drive and enthusiasm. I am sure he'll continue to be hugely successful.

What's the most important lesson you've learned from another business leader or mentor?
Colin Robinson, chief commercial officer at Centrality. Although I only worked with Colin for a relatively short period of time, I learned so much from him. The way he was able to connect with his team on a personal level, to motivate and have them believe in his vision. He was also exceptional at reading people; I found him truly inspirational. It's hard to pick one lesson, but if I had to it would be his humility.
Who would play you in a movie of your life?
Stanley Tucci - I wish I was that stylish!
