Q:      Bill – what gets you out of bed in the morning?
A:      The challenge of redefining eircom Business Solutions from a legacy fixed voice provider to a mobile, data, services and solutions leader in the B2B Segment.

Q:        Is your phone one of the first things that you reach for?
A:        Yes… and ear buds to listen to podcasts or music during my morning exercise routine.

Q:        Do you remember the make/model of your very first mobile phone?
A:        It was the Motorola Tac*.


(*Kudos to Bill who was clearly an early adopter! The MicroTAC – released by Motorola on 25th April 1989 – was the smallest and lightest phone available at the time. On its release, it was hailed as a revolution in mobile devices).

A:        Facebook.

Q:        Ever received/used mobile coupons?
