What do you enjoy the most about being a Conversation Starter at DCo?

Each day is totally different here and each conversation with potential customers varies. I love the buzz in the sales room and I love the challenges that each day brings. There is a great atmosphere here!

What factors make for a good opening conversation?

A chirpy, bright intro to the DCo offering. NEVER mention the weather!

Are you polite to cold callers?

Always!

What makes you laugh?

Upstart Crow with David Mitchel and Lisa Tarbuck – brilliantly written hilarious drama, written in contemporary/Shakespearean speak.

What is your favourite season and why?

Spring because it signifies a new, fresh start.

Tea or coffee?

Both.

What is your most prized possession?

A painting by someone whose parent played a key role in the French Impressionist Movement.
