The weekend has come back around again, and that means some more quickfire questions. This ‘Time Out’ features Ben Roberts, the marketing director of Roberts Mart, the Leeds-based flexible packaging specialist which is celebrating its 170th anniversary this year.
What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?
It depends on the time of the year, but usually either a quick run around my home town of Harrogate or take my son Jonty to football training.
What is your hobby?
Running! It can be done anytime anywhere, all you need is a pair of trainers.
What is your favourite movie?
It’s a close toss up between Goodfellas and Once Were Warriors.
If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?
I always wanted to be an architect but now I have a burning desire to be a carpenter.
If you could have any superpower what would it be?
I wish I had superspeed so that I could run further in the same amount of time!
What is your favourite genre of music?
Hard rock and heavy metal. I have always been a big fan of The Wildhearts.
If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?
Probably watching Darren Gough playing cricket for England at Headingley, pure theatre.
