Keen-eyed information management professionals will have been amused last night to spot Andy Hayler, former Shell data management expert and Kalido executive, in his modern role as professional restaurant critic, judging the finalists in Masterchef: The Professionals.
As Terry Wogan put it, the three judges looked like a lorry driver, a 1970s porn film producer and the ‘Son of Satan’. (Andy presumably being the lorry driver?) It just goes to show that there are no barriers to reinventing yourself. There’s still hope for us sad technologists and security professionals to achieve our true purpose in life, whether scoffing free food or driving trucks.
