6S3A9750BrianHi Brian, let’s start with work; what does a ‘normal’ day constitute for you?

Preparing recommendation reports and providing technical analysis on the suitability of products on behalf of the Financial Planners.

How long have you been with the company? How did you get started?

Approx 7 months, I got a call from a recruitment agency with the opportunity to work for AKFP and I thankfully got the job.

When you were a child, what job did you want to do?

Professional Footballer, never got anywhere near it!

Work in silence or with music, background chatter and noise?

I enjoy both, I like listening to the radio while I work.

What’s your drink of choice while you’re working?

I have at least 4 coffees a day at work.

And when you’re not working?

Red Wine or Guinness, or sometimes both!

Nice. Name the best place you’ve ever visited.

I loved visiting New York on my honeymoon and I definitely intend on going back.

And how about the place that’s currently top of your ‘to visit’ list?

I’d love to visit Australia, hopefully I will get there in the future.

If you have the choice between staying in and going out, which do you normally choose and what do you normally do?

I like both, but I would prefer going out.

What would your ‘Desert Island’ disc, film and book be?

Stanley Road – Paul Weller

A Time to Kill

My Autobiography – AP McCoy

Do you prepare well in advance or are you a ‘last minute’ person?

I like to think I prepare well in advance but mostly I’m a last minute person.

Who’d play you in the film of your life?

Liam Neeson, (at least he would get the accent right).

DIY or call an expert?

Definitely call an expert.

If you had to compete at the Olympics, in any event, real or fake, what would you choose?


Physical book or e-book?

Physical Book, e-books are just not the same.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being ‘not at all’, how clued up on technology do you feel you are?

I’d say 7 or 8.

And finally, if you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?

Roy of the Rovers (not really a superhero but he was always scoring goals).
