Amber Nuttall: What’s on your mantelpiece?

The Steeple Times asks business development consultant and marine conservation campaigner Amber Nuttall: What’s on your mantelpiece?

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Smile. Its cost nothing and is so good for all who share in them including you.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way” – I can be as stubborn as a mule.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2015?

Jeremy Corbyn.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

My sister.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

To have her back.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

In life and industry we have to push boundaries in order to learn, succeed, develop, grow – in this case some financial institutions went too far but you regroup, you learn and you begin again.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“Do you know what I mean?” – If you’ve just spoken in English to me the chances are yes, I do know what you mean. It’s the most infuriating ‘filler’ phrase people seem to have latched onto.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

If you know how to look after yourself, you’ll be in a better position to help others. Conservation, most especially marine conservation, is my ‘thing’, the creation of Marine Protected Areas will hopefully work as well as the national parks on land have and continue to give back to us all for generations if not millennia but the importance of their creation now, today, is not to be underestimated, we need them now before its too late.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Never at the table.

 

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Sir David Attenborough, the Queen and a butler.

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

English breakfast, in a clearing in the middle of the wilderness, then I’d make a run for it!

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

Anytime, perhaps just not every day.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

Tea, always, fixes everything.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

Mostly my own as I like to choose the guest list. That said people watching is one of my favorite past times in the world so I’ve found a reason to love almost every party I’ve been to. Human behavior is fascinating.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My old nanny. She taught me: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way”.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Driving the 911 with the roof down and learning to fly a plane. I adore the act of travelling and love speed. Neither, sadly, are great for the environment.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

Having taken a consensus of those around me without exception there was a chorus of ‘a dolphin’. I will graciously suggest they are wildly more intelligent, have better curves but I’ll join them everyday of the week in the mischievous department and how much we love the sea.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

An Aston Martin DB10 or a Land Rover.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

Breaking a finger nail really does bother me.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Photos, invitations, a slowly growing herd of Patrick Mavros silver elephants, a fishing rod, a Bougies-Rigaud Cypres candle (I recently found out the beloved fragrance of Jackie O), somewhat bizarrely the skin of a puff adder and endless boxes of matches.

 

Business development consultant Amber Nuttall grew up between Switzerland and the Bahamas but considers herself British to her core. Her late father, Sir Nicholas Nuttall, fostered her passion for the sea and conservation and she recently paddleboarded 236 miles from source to sea on the River Thames to raise awareness for the Blue Marine Foundation. Funds raised will be used to aid a team of scientists in creating what will became the Atlantic Ocean’s largest Marine Protected Area to date.

      • What nonsense! Amber has made references to good causes and family. She has not been boastful or arrogant. I’d like to see what you have to say especially given you count Eva “The Crasher” Harold amongst your circle of friends. Be careful whom you lay down with.

    1. I don’t know who you are – or frankly have any wish to know such a churlish person.

      You are entitled to opine on the answers given by Amber Nuttall. You say that you’d “like to see what you have say.”

      I’m happy to oblige, since it seems my words didn’t register with you before: “I imagine she is a pleasant woman, but her answers seem bland and insipid.”

      But what right do you imagine you have to issue threats to me? “Be careful” you say. (Yet another ‘brave’ poster hiding behind anonymity).

      • Yolanda,
        Glenmore sounds to me the sort of sensible man who would be delighted to be ‘banished from polite circles’. But what exactly are ‘polite circles’?
        I think I will start an ‘impolite circle’ so I can avoid Yolanda
        I think Amber a dreadful self publicist and a bit of a show off.
        I had a quick word with HM and she said she wouldn’t be available at dinner party where a butler was a fellow guest….old snob!

    2. I have no intention of wasting more of my time by engaging in a dialogue with someone tedious like you.
      So read this carefully.

      Whom I associate with is absolutely none of your business. You are certainly not the arbiter of what circles (polite or otherwise) I engage in.

      Your threat (there you go again) of ‘banishment’ is without merit. Do you suppose any of my friends and acquaintances would pay a moment’s attention to an anonymous, self-appointed social policeman like you?

      Your assurance that “others deciding to distance themselves from you” is something I would welcome. I hope you are in that cohort, (Though, since you mentioned ‘polite’ society you certainly wouldn’t qualify). I have no need to have contact with such fickle, sheep-like, lumpen sorts. I would welcome them keeping their distance. I assure you I have the kind of social life many envy and have no need of expanding it.

      Finally, your comment “Being rude to Amber is also uncalled for”. Stating that I found her answers seemingly bland and insipid, Is opinion and fair comment, not rudeness. Or have you set yourself up as the arbiter of editorial content as well as a self-appointed social policeman too?

    3. How pompous you sound mate!!!!!! As for your chum Eva The Diva, YUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Last seen ranting in Waitrose!!!! The shoppers ran for the hills!!!!!!!!!!!!
