Cream or custard?

‘Custard Creams’. Why make it a choice?

Most wanted dinner party guest?

The late great Keith Floyd would have been terrific value and refreshingly un-PC. He’d have also brought a decent bottle of plonk – possibly half empty though.

Alternatively I’d invite Phill Jupitus just so as I could slam the door in the face of one of this country’s most unfunny comedians.

3 words that describe your home?

A retro temple.

What do you enjoy most about working for Factor 3?

The variety and unpredictability. Different clients each with their own marketing challenges make for a stimulating environment for me and the team.

What do you do at Factor 3?

We’ve a relatively flat structure which means preparing strategy docs and pitching one day is balanced by the nitty gritty of reviewing client profitability and time recovery figures.

As a dyed in wool ‘suit’ (in a dyed woollen suit), I’ve never lost the feeling of expectation and pride in seeing effective marketing material prepared for a client doing the job we’ve intended of it. I love it when a communication plan comes together.

And I’m not averse to a bit of proof reading and I do make a mean cup of tee.

Nickname if you have one?

The obvious answer is ‘yes, it’s Nick’. My ‘passion and commitment’ on the hockey pitch has earned me a few yellow cards and the ‘Nasty Nick’ monicker. Wholly inappropriate.

Where do you come from?

That’s funny. Someone recently asked me what planet I was from, accompanied by a look of disbelief. But that’s clients for you.

The first breath I took on this planet was in Guildford, Surrey.

The South will rise!
