Time Out: Diana Rowatt, client services director at Force24

The weekend has come back around again, and that means some more quickfire questions. This week’s ‘Time Out’ features Diana Rowatt, client services director at marketing automation platform Force24…

What is the first thing you do to get the weekend started?

Get home and enjoy a nice glass of wine.

What is your hobby?

I love going to the gym. I also really enjoy cooking and cycling – not at the same time!

What is your favourite movie?

I do have a couple that I can watch over and over again, but I’d have to go for Dirty Dancing. It’s so iconic and there’s a lot of meaning behind it – it’s one of my all-time favourites.

If you hadn’t been successful at what you do, what would you be doing instead as a career?

Property development. It’s something I did when I was younger – and which took me abroad to sell houses – so I’d revisit that career. I’ve also recently bought a house that I’m doing up – it’s a bit of a 1970s throwback but has so much character and appeal that I’m really enjoying the renovation. I love the planning and turning a vision into a reality.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

Invisibility. I would sneak into Parliament and find out exactly what’s happening!

What is your favourite genre of music?

This is tricky because I like lots of music and it depends on my mood – I could sit and listen to classical as much as I could cheesy pop! One person I’ve always wanted to go and see live is Sir Elton John though!

If you could travel to any moment in time where would you go?

If I’m only visiting, I’d go and see what it was like when dinosaurs were around. But I’d also be keen to get out of there pretty sharpish if I could!
