Welcome to WONDR’s Team Spotlight!

Dear Reader, you might be wondering what Team Spotlight is and I think it’s only fair if we answered that question early on. So without further ado, let’s see what that means:

Team Spotlight is a format of asking questions and sharing answers between team members in order to get to know each other better, through non-standard questions, which may vary and are designed to show funny and relatable side of ourselves.

This blog post is all about our amazing Simon! He is WONDR’s Co - Founder & COO and is responsible for operational stuff at WONDR, like managing the accounts and helping to coordinate the teams' activity..This means our Simon is a very busy bee but he always makes sure to have time to catch up with us and chill on our team’s virtual island!

We’ve asked Simon twelve tricky questions and demanded very-serious-answers..
Let’s see what he said 😜

  1. If you were given three wishes, what would you wish for?
    The ability to pause time, to make the world more humble, endless supply of Cadbury mini eggs
  2. If you found a suitcase with a £100 mil in it, what would you do?
    Hand it back in and hope for a reward ha!
  3. If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?
    Cats, they are always plotting your demise anyway. I imagine they would be rude with a hint of sarcasm.
  4. If cartoon physics suddenly replaced real physics, what are some things you would want to try?
    Michael Jordan made his basketball game amazing in Space Jam, maybe I could be better at tennis?
  5. In one sentence, how would you sum up the internet?
    The scalable representation of how people naturally think and act; people blame it for a lot of the world’s problems; but behind the opinions and madness you will find some of the most life changing information or people.
  6. Would you rather cuddle a koala or pal around with a panda?
    I have held a koala so palling around with panda as they seem super chill
  7. Would you rather spend a week alone in the forest or a night in a real haunted house?
    I’d prefer to chill in the forest, sounds like an ideal break, unless this is a haunted forest? If you can let me know that would be great.
  8. When was the last time you immediately regretted something you said?
    Too many to say, I have a chat group with my friends and I get things wrong every day. I don’t have a filter in chat groups so this normally goes wrong.
  9. Tear gas makes people cry and laughing gas makes people giggle, what other kinds of gases do you wish existed?
    I am a heavy sleeper so mornings can be a struggle so I’d say a gas to wake you up and then you feel how you would feel at 11AM.
  10. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve found lying on the ground / side of the road?
    I saw an elephant being walked down the road in Cambodia, does that count?

Two questions to get to know you better:

  1. What can someone else do to make your day better?
    Buy me Piri Piri Chicken
  2. What is something that can easily upset you?
    People that are quick to judge others
