Q - Why did you start the site?
A - I set up ‘The Bold War’ as a platform to share my thoughts, vision and opinion on all matters relating to mobile innovation, industry trends and organisational competence.
Q - Why did you call the site ‘The Bold War’?

A - I am consumed by the potential of mobile innovation and the opportunities that exist with meeting growing customer demand. I hope that my posts can encourage members of the industry to embrace change, take action, and ultimately reward consumers with a better experience.
