Ollie considers IBM
the best sales training in the world - After being given a list of the best restaurants in Brussels and being told there was no time to visit any of them, a residential 6 day training course followed - from 8 till 8 with homework and an exam to pass at the end of the week!
Day 1
Let's forget about the technology and think about the reasons why people buy products and services". The key lesson was/is to listen to your customers and try to give them what they want!

Passions Olivia and Felix - the kids
He feels alive when running - when there is time. Ollie was a Surrey county 400 metre hurdles finalist and is a Surrey county silver medalist in the 4 x 400m relay. "He remembers it as if it were yesterday even though it was over 10 years ago!" Having now achieved veteran sorry "master" status, he completed a 3 mile cross country and various 400M and 200M races last year although he was sadly tripped in the school parent's race. He will be racing on the track again this year and it is his last chance for victory in the parent's race as Olivia is off to secondary school this year.
Further passions include his alto saxophone. Olivia has skills with the piano and clarinet so music is a fun hobby to share and bond with her ahead of retiring somewhere hot to perfect his playing.
That's the S O S leader.
