Five minutes with… Mark Wilson

Mark Wilson, Elamb Ltd

Favourite North-East building and why?

Any of the 100’s of pub’s 😊… that is self-explanatory!

What was your first job and how much did you get paid?

The first job I got that included a legitimate interview process was working in the call centre for Hutchison Telecom at Morton Park, I honestly can’t remember the wage but it was something like £4.50 an hour.

What is the worst job you’ve had?

Setting up and cleaning up after firework shows…it is long hours, late at night and you never get to watch the show.

What would your superpower be?

To become invisible (but to have the power to switch it on an off!). You could have a lot of fun with that!

Favourite book or film or both?

The Power of One, by Bryce Courtenay

What is your greatest achievement?

Eating an after eight mint by sliding it down my forehead, over my nose and into my mouth without using my hands 😉

What’s the best piece of advice in business you’ve ever been given?

It’s better to be decisive and try something (and even fail) than be indecisive and do nothing.

Favourite animal and why?

Rhinoceros…I have no idea why!

Most famous person you have met?

The Queen

In another life I would be…

Someone else

Who would play you in a film of your life?

Some very unlucky actor who is really struggling to get any jobs, because there isn’t much showbiz about my life!

What’s your secret talent?

I can squawk like a parrot

What’s your passion outside of work?

Keeping fit, watching sport and spending time with my girls.
