The James Hardie Building Materials marketing manager on Urban Dictionary, eighties pop cheese, and how Candy Crush Saga took over her personal life

Karan Ogden

What is your favourite website? – take a look, you literally couldn’t make it up.

What is your worst digital habit?

I seem to have developed an addiction to playing games on my iPad – Candy Crush Saga has officially taken over my personal life!

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

For work, Blackberry wins for me every time. Unfortunately, I now have an iPhone, which is not particularly useful when travelling away on business – no proper working alarm. What is all that about Apple?

Are you into social networking?

Only LinkedIn. I occasionally dabble on Facebook and then wonder why I bothered.

What is your favourite app?

BikeLight – I work in Holland a lot and love the fact I can make my phone into a bikelight when cycling home after late meetings (or after work drinks).

What is your preferred means of communication?

Face to face first but email is quick and easy.

What did you last buy online?

I hate being a stereotypical woman but I’m afraid to say it was a pair of shoes (ok – I admit it was two pairs, but they were in a sale!)

PC or Mac?

I am old school so would have to say PC.

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

Lots of eighties pop cheese.
