Rotaract President on Parmesan, Chimp Paradoxes and Netball Skirts

What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done in your life?
Out of all of these questions, this was the hardest one to answer. Mulling over this question made me realise that I’m not very adventurous!
I’m hoping to do some more travelling this summer so I’ll have to book an experience diving with sharks or doing a bungee jump. I might even have to suggest a Rotaract fundraiser where we skydive for charity (I might regret putting this in writing!)
It might not be your average ‘daring’ activity, but I did take part in the annual Sixth Form panto in Year 13. I’m not the most gifted actor so I was chosen to be a “dancer”. This led me, and three other mates to attempt to “dance” while dressed in netball skirts (not sure why that was a requirement!)
It might not be “daring” but it certainly was nerve-racking. Especially as we “performed” in front of the whole school and even our parents. Despite this, it was a laugh and it was good to take part in a school tradition which I had grown up watching. It would be rude not to take part!

I’m not sure I’ll be repeating this any time soon though!

What is your favourite brand and why do you like it?
My favourite brand is The Football Ramble. It is a biweekly podcast hosted by four mates who all share the same interest, football (as the title suggests).
It began in 2007, and was recorded in one of the presenter’s kitchen. Fast forward 11 years and it is the world’s largest independent podcast.
While it does not appear to be a “traditional” brand acheter viagra maroc. It definitely displays the hallmarks of one. It has got a strong brand identity and a loyal fan base. In recent years the show has expanded into a website, live events and has even appeared in a Championship Manager game.
Podcasts such as The Football Ramble are an immersive medium which really helps to develop a core fan base who buy into the brand. The Bugle and Serial are also good examples of podcast brands which have become popular across the globe; enabling them to generate income through sponsorship and merchandise.
I really enjoy listening to a variety of podcasts as it’s such an immersive medium which can kill hours on a journey.

If you could steal someone else’s career, who would you pick and why?
As a type 1 diabetic I have always looked up to the Olympic rower, Sir Steve Redgrave. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes aged 35. But this didn’t stop him from becoming one of Britain’s greatest ever Olympians; since he won gold medals at 5 successive Olympic games. He’s a great inspiration to me, not just because of his medical condition, but the fact that he was able to remain at the top of his sport for over two decades. What an achievement!

I’m not sure if I could cope with training schedule of an Olympic rower; but I would love to give the 7,000 calorie, a day, diet a go!

What’s the best business/personal development book you’ve ever read?
Carrying on the sporting theme, the best personal development book I’ve read is called ‘The Chimp Paradox’ by Dr Steve Peters. This book has been used by Team GB at the 2012 Olympics, Liverpool FC, and also the snooker player Ronnie O’Sullivan. It has also been used by a variety of businesses in order to get the best out of individuals, colleagues, partners, customers, and clients.

The book proposes the reader to see the brain as three separate teams. The first team is you, the Human, which is the conscious, thinking, analysing being that works with the facts and the truth and then makes decisions using logical thinking. The second is the Chimp, an independent thinking brain that is not under your control. It works with feelings and impressions and then puts ‘information’ together using emotional thinking. The third team is the Computer. This is really a brain that is at the disposal of the Human and the Chimp to put information into for reference. It acts as a memory card and can also act as an automatic thinking and acting machine that is programmed to take over if the Chimp or Human is asleep, or if they allow it to run ahead of them with preformed decisions and beliefs that it can act with.
That description may not make much sense, but it’s a hard theory to describe concisely. It is well worth a read as it gets the reader thinking about how to approach situations; and to not let your ‘Chimp’ take over.

If you could only eat one type of cheese for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

I’m not a massive cheese eater (despite working on the Waitrose cheese counter) but I’m a keen amateur cook; and an ingredient that I like to add to dishes is Parmesan. You can’t beat adding it to some pasta, a Risotto or on top of a Caesar salad!
