  1. Why did you decide to do a webinar with Business Review Webinars?

The Filtra-Systems STiR filter is a very versatile product with applications across many industries.  We feel the webinar will be a great avenue to talk to many people across a wide industry base to let them know how it works, why it works, and to see if it can be applied to help meet their need.

  1. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?

I am really looking forward to explaining two points. The first is the technical and commercial advantages that STiR filters have due to the backwash design. Our media regeneration is far superior and mathematically proven to be the most efficient, and we have continually improved the design to significantly reduce costs. The second point is presenting the real life applications and problems we were able to solve while working with our clients.  The things you learn with each application propel continuous improvement and innovation so I think the audience will be able to take away the most from that portion of our discussion.

  1. What’s your favourite thing about presenting to a live audience?

I have presented at many technical conferences in the past but this is my first Webinar, so I am not quite sure what to expect.  I guess I am looking forward to great participation and good questions about our walnut shell filter and I hope everyone will come away with something.

  1. What is the most interesting thing you’ve done within your current role?

It has to have been the chance to travel the world, and to have been able to meet and build relationships with people.  When thinking about my carrer to this point, the opportunity to have friends and colleges from all around the world is really what I am grateful for.  I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to travel to do so.  I am not the first to say it, but I know that it is true. The more often people from different places and backgrounds can sit down and share a meal together, the better the world will be.

  1. What motivates you?

My 3 Girls motivate me.  My wife Heidi and my daughters Anna and Eloise.  Also, achieving the satisfying feeling one gets from solving difficult problems.  Considering that, I suppose I will have the opportunity to be both motivated and satisfied when my girls reach their teenage years?  Perhaps other fathers could chime in and provide advice during our chat.

Filtra-Systems will be presenting their webinar ‘Improve water filtration efficiency with our backwashable Walnut Shell Water Polishing Filter‘ on 4th November at 3pm London/10am New York, read more & register here.
