On the sofa with our Founder and Managing Director, Jeremy Clark
In this series of blog posts, we’ll be asking a CHC team member ten questions to get to know a bit more about them. First up, Jeremy Clark (JC).
Question 1: Big dogs or small dogs?
JC: This dog. According to dog coat manufacturers, he is medium sized.
Question 2: Desert Island Disc, but only one song. Go.
JC: This is almost impossible for me. I love music and have music playing for many hours each day. To choose just one song is really hard. Today I will choose Teenage Riot by Sonic Youth. But I might choose something completely different tomorrow!
Question 3: If you weren’t working in healthcare communications, what would you be doing?
JC: I’d be working for a National Park Authority such as the Lake District National Park, or working to secure National Park status for the coast of North Cornwall to ensure it is protected for generations to come.
Question 4: What are you interested in that most people aren’t?
JC: Growing vegetables in our allotment.
Question 5: What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?
JC: Breakdancing and body-popping.
Question 6: If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?
JC: Legendary DJ John Peel. Sadly he’s not around any longer, but his voice on the radio was so important to me growing up (as it was to millions of others) that I’d hope technology might help make it happen.
Question 7: What would you do if given a spontaneous day off?
JC: Go for an early run through the Chiltern Hills near my home, then take the family and our dog for a walk to a local pub for lunch.
Question 8: What is the last book you read?
JC: Pig Wrestling: The Brilliantly Simple Way to Solve Any Problem… and Create the Change You Need by Pete Lindsay and Dr Mark Bawden.
Question 9: What talent do you yearn for?
JC: To be able to sing really well and play the piano at the same time – both of these are very far from coming true on their own, let alone at the same time.
Question 10: It’s your birthday. Do you like a surprise party or would you rather have planned it yourself?
JC: I don’t think I’ve had a surprise party so not really sure but probably planned.
