Nick Oram: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

The Steeple Times asks television producer and host Nick Oram: “What’s on your mantelpiece?”

 

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

The willingness to change and learning from my mistakes.

 

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

The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

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

Not seeing my family often enough.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

To be even happier… If that’s even possible

 

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?

Overleveraging and margin calls were the undoing of the big banks. Too big to fail? … Or not (as the case turned out).

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“With all due respect”.

 

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

I believe in offering benevolent goodwill towards the needy and suffering. I support the Children’s Miracle Network.

 

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?

Can you hear me now?!?
