Stewart Milne Timber Systems’ regional sales manager Debi Lama on Amy Winehouse, agreeing with the PM (about Twitter), and why her computer is so slow

Debi Lama

What is your favourite website?

I don’t have one overall favourite but there are a few I like to check regularly, namely: TRADA, Glenigans, HBF and UKTFA. You can possibly see a theme developing among them.

What is your worst digital habit?

I suppose my worst habit is having too many programs opened at the same time. When you’ve got a lot to do it just seems to happen naturally. Yes, I know it slows the computer down!

iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?

Definitely iPhone. It’s great for email, browsing, and general functionality. Blackberry would probably have to come in last place.

Are you into social networking?

I’m on Linkedin and Facebook. As most people probably find, I use one for professional life and the other personal. It’s hard to say which one I use more at the moment.

If you are on Twitter, who do you recommend to follow?

I’m afraid I’m yet to join the world of Twitter. My views are somewhat in line with David Cameron’s on the subject.

What is your favourite app?

The London Underground and Google Maps apps are great when you’re on the run. I find myself travelling a lot for work and these have been lifesavers when I’ve been trying to get around town quickly. Likewise,’s app has been brilliant for finding last minute accommodation, which happens relatively often.

What is your preferred means of communication?

I like to have things in writing. That way you can’t forget what people have said and can always go back to something for reference. Email and text are the way I like people to get in touch.

What did you last buy online?

The last thing I bought online was flights. As I said before, I’m always on the move.

PC or Mac?

Despite being on the iPhone’s side, I’m a PC person. It’s just what I’ve always used.

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

It’s got to be either Will-I-Am or the wonderful Amy Winehouse. Her music is still amazing even though I’ve heard it so many times.
