A day in the life of…Shahnawaz Sheikh Shahnawaz Sheikh, regional director, DELL SonicWALL.

6.15am
The apples of my eye, Sobhia 8 and Rabia 4 1/2 get ready to leave for school. I drop them off at the school bus, do a quick check of my emails.

8.30am
Breakfast. Usually I eat cereals, boiled eggs, or toast and a cup of black coffee.

9.00am
Usually these 3 hours are packed with email responses or meetings.

12.00pm
When not at meetings this time is spent checking emails, placing calls to my team.

2.00pm
I tend to allocate 30 minutes after 2pm for lunch. My lunch is a salad or sandwiches, though I have a strong weakness for rice.

2.30pm
Daily calls with my team, one team call a week and one face-to-face team meeting, day-to-day interaction with distribution contacts, attend a weekly management call.

5.00pm
Usually when the day’s primary tasks are attended to, I tend to read technology trends, or about our own products.

6.00pm
My day has not yet finished, this is when I reach out to distant market partners.

7.30pm
The kids engage me in their games and entertain me with lots of stories from school.  The icing on the cake is when my wife serves the food of my choice. I work out before, or walk after dinner.

11.00pm
I am vigilant with my emails as this is the time I need to sort out distributor’s queries with my US team.
