What’s your favourite means of communication?

I try to talk to people, but email is addictive, especially as ours files itself! I still speak to my friends and colleagues and recommend it highly.

What do you listen to?

Melvyn Bragg’s “In Our Time” podcast is a treat each week …

What’s in your digital holster?

Much of my time is spent working from Hoare Lea’s office in Abu Dhabi so it's BlackBerry or VPN via 3G and WiFi. “Offline” means “in-flight” and my iPod.

What was the last book you bought?

Independent People by Halldór Laxness – my daughter has an Icelandic fetish and recommended it.
