What inspired you to write this book?
I was waiting at the airport watching business people in particular trying to juggle 101 things at once. I abandoned any thought of writing the next War & Peace and decide to write a useful, practical tool kit for business people with limited time.

What are you reading at the moment?
Harry Potter and just finished reading Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

What's the most interesting job you've had and why?
My current job. I run my own business called The Speed Thinking Zone ( and we help people to solve problems in more powerful and sustainable ways.

If you could invite five people, alive or dead, to a dinner party, who would they be and why?
I have limited to living people; Pat Dodson, Terry Tao (Fields Medal Winner), JK Rowling, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Roger Federer.

What do you do to relax?
Go to the movies with my Wife, Walk the dogs on Sunday at the park with my kids and practice my Kung Fu.

What's your biggest indulgence?
Dark Chocolate and a nice glass of red wine.

What makes you laugh?
My own jokes - although no one else seems to find my clever, witty lines quite as humorous.

What makes you cry?
If my kids are hurt. Inspiring people that have made a difference to other people's lives.

What's your proudest moment?
Finishing my PhD - there were many teachers at my high school who advised me to drop out that may have been surprised.

What's your next project?
Writing a follow up to the Idea Generator called The Idea Accelerator.
