In the hot seat: NVIDIA sales account manager Lisa Wooton

NVIDIA’s UK and Nordics sales account manager (and former photo developer) recalls airport embarrassments, her best work trip and what she’d do if she could go back in time…

What’s your most embarrassing or funniest moment in the industry?

Every time I travel abroad with colleagues, you can guarantee that I will get buzzed going through security at Heathrow Airport – and end up in the security booth with my hands above my head being full body scanned.

What was your first job?

I had a Saturday job working in a local chemist on the photo counter, printing and developing people’s photos (this was before everything went digital).

Tell us something about yourself not many people know?

I practice aerial silks.

If you could go back in time, what would you do?

I would go back to the 1920s and be a flapper girl, so I could wear all the pretty beads and flapper dresses!

What are your drinks of choice?

Prosecco and creamy cocktails.

What’s the best place you have visited for work and outside of work?

When I travel with work you don’t get to see much, but I went to Finland recently and I enjoyed it there as the people are awesome. Outside of work, the best place I’ve been to is probably Thailand.

Who are you nominating for a future ‘In the hot seat’? 

Nathan Proudfoot from VIP Computers.
