60 seconds with …..Dave Weston, Head of Channel Sales UK & I, OKI

What’s currently having the greatest impact on your business?
We have been engaging with several key retail brands in the UK and Ireland. They have been talking to us about our retail solutions, banner print capability and flexible media handling. We have some exciting projects on the go, so keep an eye out on your high street to see our solutions in action.
Where do you see the next big opportunity?
OKI is focused on a number of key verticals, automotive, retail, hospitality and leisure to name a few. With our current drive and investment, we expect our next big opportunity to come from one of these big sectors.What would make your day job easier?
More hours in the day. Less holidays for customers!What’s the best bit of business advice you’ve been given?
‘Business is serious; however, you don’t always have to be serious in business’. We spend a huge amount of our lives working. It should be fun. If people are happy then productivity is higher. Employers retain good staff and the positivity of its people is reflected in the brand. I am a big believer that people buy from people.

If you had had a crystal ball, would you have done anything differently?
I think it’s important to focus on the future, we cannot change the past. However, if I could have done anything differently it would have been to fail faster, we learn the most from failing. Don’t be afraid of it.

Money’s not an issue, what’s your perfect car… and where would you like to drive it? 
Mercedes SLS, round an F1 track with a heap of F1 cars breathing down your neck.
