The weekend is just around the corner and that means another ‘Time Out’. This week Business Link talks to Paul Milton, Director at Clumber Consultancy, the north Nottinghamshire-based specialist Pensions and ERA Service provider for the UK insolvency market.
What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?
I find opening and sharing a nice bottle of red with Mrs M at the end of a busy week is not a bad way to start the weekend.
What is your hobby?
Most things sport really. Growing up it was fishing, which I still enjoy today but if I had to choose one, it has to be football. There is only one rule in our house – football first!
I wouldn’t like to estimate how many miles I’ve driven over the years to watch my two boys train and play. I’ve been a Leicester City season ticket holder for close to 30 years and have experienced some incredible highs (and lows) in that time.
What is your favourite movie?
It’s usually over the Christmas period when I’m most likely to find the time to watch a movie. I never get tired of watching classics like The Italian Job.
My last visit to the cinema proved to be a disappointment though. I was convinced I had tickets to see ‘Darkest Hour’. However, 20 minutes into the film I questioned why Winston Churchill hadn’t made an appearance yet, only to be told he was unlikely to, as we were watching The Greatest Showman.
If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?
I do have a passion for good food and love to cook whenever I get the chance, so probably a chef.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I would love the ability to hear people’s thoughts (like Mel Gibson in What Women Want). I have a very dry sense of humour and people often tell me they’re not sure if I’m being serious or whether I’m joking. I think I could have a lot of fun with that one.
What is your favourite genre of music?
I have no particular favourite genre, it very much depends on the occasion and my mood as to what I listen to. This can vary from dance anthems to classical. My most played album though is probably Coldplay’s, ‘A Rush of Blood to the Head’.
If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?
This is a very easy question. I would refer you back to the “football first” rule! Without a doubt, it would be King Power Stadium in Leicester City’s title winning season. So many highs, the likes of which I’ll probably never experience again in my lifetime.
The party that was the final home game of the season, starting with Andrea Bocelli singing Nessun Dorma to a packed stadium, ending with us finally getting our hands on the Premier League trophy. This must be about as good as it gets.
