The weekend is just around the corner and that means another ‘Time Out’. This week Business Link talks to Spencer Coffin, director of Procure Direct, based in Lincoln.
What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?
Once I get home from the office, I strip off all work clothes, jump in the shower, first hot to wash and clean and then stone cold to wake me up ready to welcome in the weekend.
What is your hobby?
I have quite a few hobbies. I like to run every other night, mountain bike, road bike at weekends as well as play golf, go clay pigeon shooting and when I get time go fishing. I’m thinking of taking up fly fishing to try to help relax me and slow things down a bit.
What is your favourite movie?
Ok so this is easy! I love sitting in the cinema room, winding the bass right up and sitting back on my own with a few cold beers and watching Apocalypse Now.
If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?
I would have joined the army and trained to become a PT instructor as I love fitness and the challenges that come with the forces. Failing that, perhaps the Police Force in the firearms section.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
This is easy. I wanted to be able to do this ever since watching super heroes on TV, it has never changed. I’d love to be able to ‘stop time’. Imagine being able to stop and think about things in detail before making serious decisions and answering people? How many times I have bit my lip and wished I had said something else or nothing at all. Stopping time would enable you to evaluate a situation and think it through from all angles.
What is your favourite genre of music?
Rave, Techno, Happy Hard Core all the way. If I am stressed out and on my own in the car out comes the Techno with some banging bass and I’m lost in fun, crazy times and memories, and my go to tune would be 808 State Cubik or perhaps something from Chase and Status.
If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?
The birth of my first child so I could tell my partner that all will be fine and not to panic. At the time, I knew nothing and was of no use at all. I just stood there like most men and held her hand while I was allowed, before being asked to leave the room so she could have emergency surgery.
