Benoy's associate director has come over from the UK to clinch some overseas deals

What are your areas of expertise?

Central and Eastern Europe

How long are you here for?

I've been here since Monday, and am leaving on Thursday.

How are you finding it?

Quite stimulating so far. At the back of my mind I thought it would be quite quiet, but if anything I think we'll run out of time to meet all the people we want to.

What are you aiming for from the event?

Work! I think all of us are now operating globally, and it's interesting to see North Africa and Turkey being well represented. And Montenegro –it would be good if we could clinch something there.

What do you do in your downtime here?

I'll spend the evenings talking to colleagues and drinking the exceptionally good wine.
