About the company...
Why are you exhibiting at RBTE in 2017 for the first time?
We’re part of the community of tech-creators leading retail into a new generation where technology helps to engage with customers, makes employees happier, and operations and processes simply work better. It’s great to be at an event surrounded by others with the same vision, as well as retailers who are keen to move their businesses into a digital era. Everyone at RotaGeek is passionate and proud of what we have achieved in the past year, from outstanding growth to some really fantastic additions to our team. We’re looking forward to RBTE.
How effective is RBTE compared to your other forms of marketing?
RBTE is a great to meet others solving retail problems with technology, but it’s also a good place to find retailers turning to technology for solutions. Events are great for networking, and that’s one of the best values of RBTE.

The people behind the company...
What was your first car?
A yellow VW beetle.
What 3 things would you take with you on a desert island?
- A hot air ballon (I’d use the canopy for shelter, the burners to cook food, the basket for storage. Then when I’d had enough of being stranded, I’d inflate the balloon and start a new adventure, like the guy from Up).
- A swiss army knife
- Kendal Mint Cake (famously taken on the first ascent of Everest)
Favourite album from your teens?
Guns n’ Roses - Appetite for Destruction.
What's your Starbucks order?
White filter coffee.
Veuve Clicquot or pint of ale?
Veuve Clicquot (I don't like ale).
Favourite gadget you own?
My Bose noise-cancelling headphones.
Favourite TV show?
First dates - I’d love to have Fred spend a day with the RotaGeek team.
What would be the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
I’d do nothing and tell no-one for the first year. I’m quite content and building RotaGeek takes all of my time and attention.
