Logo for SmartPEns and LivescribeIn this second in our series of interviews from the BETT 2012 interviews, we hear form Simon Lee, the UK Head of Sales for Livescribe, the manufacturer of the incredible SmartPen.

I use a Livescribe SmartPen myself, and I can attest to how useful they are for helping you to concentrate on what is being said, not taking notes and so on in meetings.

Without fail, after every single sales meeting I do for English360, the people I’m talking to ask “what’s that amazing pen?” or something along those lines!

The next interview in this series will be with Gareth Davies, the CEO of an amazing virtual learning environment that I’d never heard of before, Frog. Great name – and not a bad looking VLE either 🙂
