What gets you in to work with a spring in your step?
I work with a fantastic group of people who form a close-knit team here at Crystal. Coming in to work to be part of that every day, definitely adds a spring to my step.
Most memorable event?
Many years ago, a team of us delivered an event in Paris where 3,500 partners from a large firm were using our technology to try a new approach to electing their CEO. This huge undertaking (running over several days) required much planning, but the system worked flawlessly and exceeded their expectations. We were exhausted but extremely proud of what we had achieved.
I am happy simply spending time with my wife, Lisa, and two young children. We enjoy the great outdoors: walking, cycling and camping (weather permitting!). I find gardening incredibly therapeutic, I cycle and would love to play more golf. For my sins, I am a West Ham fan.
