A Plus proved its hi-tech credentials last week when Anuj Nayer
starred in BBC’s prime time techie show Hot Gadgets.
Account executive Anuj was one of three punters recruited by the Beeb to
test a trio of wacky inventions - a stress relief headset, an interactive
TV system and a solar-powered cooker. To test the headset Anuj was
required to spend 20 minutes in a tranquil spot. So, what better place,
than A-Plus’s loos?
It seems that Anuj was handed over to the BBC, after the corporation rang
A Plus in search of a ’thrusting young executive’ who loved gadgets.
Curious as to why Jonathan Simnett, A Plus’s far-from-media-shy director
had not grabbed the TV exposure, I gave him a call.
’Having just turned 39, I’m more of a thrusting increasingly-middle-aged
executive,’ he admits. ’As for hot gadgets, when I first arrived at A
Plus, the top thing in hi-tech was an electric typewriter.’
