What gets you in to work with a spring in your step?
The efficiency of the whole team and the use of high quality technology and software.
Most memorable event?
2018 Commonwealth Games Host decider (between Hambantota, Sri Lanka and Gold Coast, Australia) in St Kitts. The CGF were nervous about using an electronic voting system for the first time. After many meetings and demonstrations we gained their confidence in the system.
It was a spectacular event with much entertainment through the week. Being in charge of running the deciding vote, I found myself in the spotlight, with reporters asking how reliable the system was. The system just had to work because the media now had my picture! Of course, the technology did not let me down. The best part was solely knowing who had won, along with two scrutineers, for a good half hour before it was announced to the world.
Spend time with my family, keep fit at home and my local boxing club. I'm big on boxing and Formula One.
