The director of business development for the UK Green Building Council is on Twitter but has yet to tweet and prefers iPhone to Blackberry
What is your favourite website?
What is your worst digital habit?
I probably keep too many files, programmes and pages open at the same time. Sometimes it all comes crashing down or I lose things – not ideal.
iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?
The iphone without a doubt – I don’t know what I’d do without it. It replaced a big fat filofax about five years ago and is now my phone, contacts, diary, map, train timetable and music. I did have Blackberry at one stage but found it totally counter-intuitive in comparison.
Are you into social networking? (Linkedin, Twitter, Facebook etc)
Yes, absolutely. I’m on Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter. Whilst I don’t have a desire to say much, I think it makes so much sense in terms of sharing information and just keeping up-to-date.
Are you on Twitter? If so, who do you recommentd to follow?
I am on there but I have yet to tweet. I follow about 150 people at the moment – mostly for keeping in touch with what’s going on in industry. Current top five people I’m following right now are: @commonoffice, @DECCgovuk @ArchitectsJrnal, @futerra, @MarkCavendish
What is your favourite app?
Met Office – I love weather and this is the most accurate and reliable source of info!
What is your preferred means of communication? (eg. Email, phone, face to face, text etc)
I think there’s a time and a place for all of these. It all comes down to what you’re saying and to whom doesn’t it? I suspect we all use email a bit too much now. When it comes to building relationships then phone and face-to-face still win hands down.
What did you last buy online?
1/A box of rhubarb and custard flavoured energy gels from www.wiggle.co.uk to get me through the triathlon season.
2/Paul Gilding’s book ‘The Great Disruption’ from Amazon.
PC or Mac?
I use a PC at work but have a MacBook at home.
Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?
The Lady Killer by Cee Lo Green abd Every Teardrop is a Waterfall by Coldplay.
