Q How long have you worked for Fonesure?
Two and a half years.
Q What was your first paid employment?
Pet shop assistant.
Q What made you move into the mobile phone industry?
It was 16 years ago, and it was an emerging, innovative industry that looked like it was going to be big. I was right!
Q What is the best aspect about your job?
Meeting different types of people and no two days being the same.
Q What is the worst aspect?
Sitting in traffic, and especially the moving roadworks on the motorways.
Q What is the best sales incentive you have ever won?
A trip to New York.
Q If you could suggest an incentive what would it be?
World Cup Final tickets – because I want to be there when England win.
Q What do you like most about the mobile industry?
The people, and how the industry is constantly changing and presenting new challenges.
Q What do you like least?
Q If you could change anything about the industry what would it be?
Lose the continual changes by the networks in their commission structures.
Q If you could design a mobile handset what functions would it have?
The ability to send holograms (so that I can be in two places at once).
Q If you could capture any image and send as a picture message what would it be, who would you send it to, and why?
Watford winning the playoffs and getting promotion to the Premiership, sent to everyone I know. Why? Because I wouldn’t be able to talk as my voice would have disappeared through cheering.
(must be psychic – get ready for the pics! ED)

A PEBL – smooth and stylish like me!

The standard blackberry ringtone.

A bit of everything – rock, soul, jazz, R’n’B
