David Inggs, Chief Technology Officer - VMob

 

Q: What’s the best thing about your organisation?

A: The team is the key. A mix of personalities that are all very talented, and who each bring unique skills but don’t take themselves too seriously.

Q: What motivates you?

A: A really big challenge.  Tackling a new emerging technology and delivering commercial success from it.

Q: The one thing New Zealand needs to do to stand out on the world stage is to …

A: Win, and show you’re having fun doing it. From the All Blacks to yacht racing, the Olympics and software companies, Kiwis stand out not because they are the loudest but because they have the most passion to win!

Q: The business person / leader I most admire is …

A: Can’t beat Richard Branson for passion to win and the talent to pull it off over and over again.

Q: What advice would you give to someone starting their own business?

A: Find a mentor, someone you respect enough to accept hard advice from. The biggest impact they will make is probably going to be from the things you didn’t want to hear.

Q: What technology could you not live without?

A: I think we forget how much we rely on the simple audio speaker.

Q: What is your favourite form of communication?

A: Email - it’s patient and encourages a considered response.
