- Which piece of technology would you like to help develop?
The replicator from Star Trek, because it enables real objects to be developed from any idea. The possibilities for inventing things that could really change the world would be unlimited.
- Which business superstar would you love to spend a day with?
That would have to be Jack Welch, the former CEO of General Electric, who has also written the “Winning” series of books, popularized the Six Sigma process management model, and is surely one of the best CEOs of the last decade. His management strategies included embracing change and reinvention, leading rather than controlling, giving employees at all levels responsibility and freedom, being focused, being consistent and following up.

Integrity, authenticity, passion and humour.
