Time Out: Paul Beaumont, Managing Partner at ConsultPB

The weekend has come back around again, and that means some more quickfire questions. This week’s ‘Time Out’ features Paul Beaumont, Managing Partner at ConsultPB.

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

In more ‘normal’ times, I have a bit of a lie in on a Saturday. Each weekday, I get to the gym for a swim at six – but it doesn’t open until eight at the weekend, so I go then instead!

What is your hobby?

As a true Yorkshireman, I am passionate about brass bands. I’m a trustee/director of Brass Bands England – a not-for-profit organisation which represents over 550 brass bands and is majority-funded by Arts Council England. Pre-Covid, my wife Julie and I regularly attended band concerts and we look forward to being able to do so again!

What is your favourite movie?

Coming from a technology background, I’m somewhat of a petrol head, so it has to be The Italian Job from 1969, starring Michael Caine, Noel Coward, Benny Hill and Raf Vallone.

It starts of course with a beautiful orange Lamborghini Miura winding its way up a mountain pass. Later we see an Aston Martin, convertible Jaguar, Fiat Dino – and last but not least that iconic trio of Mini Coopers. Fantastic!

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

I’m fascinated with advertising of all sorts and would certainly have chosen this as an alternative career.

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

There have been quite a few times in my life when the ability to see what would happen in the future could have been particularly useful!

What is your favourite genre of music?

I have a very broad and eclectic taste in music. I listen to everything from brass band and classical music to some of the old favourites like Elkie Brooks, Elton John and Rod Stewart. I’m presently particularly taken with Passenger and Celeste.

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

I would love to have been on the first British Airways transatlantic commercial flight of Concorde, which flew from London to Bahrain on 21 January 1976.
