60 seconds with Ian Pardoe

Posted On 14th/Mar/2018 By Natasha Jones

We know that you like to know a little bit about our amazing team members and what they get up to when not at arrangeMY HQ.

As such, we grab one of our team quarterly for just 60 seconds and ask them for 7 fascinating facts about them. Today, it’s Group Bookings guru Ian Pardoe…

Fact 1 – I had a trial at Norwich City and Walsall football clubs as a teenager. Some say I can ‘bend it like Beckham.’

Fact 2 – My best party trick is that I can talk like Donald Duck!

Fact 3 – I possess ‘crazy dancing feet’ when I’ve had a couple of drinks. People have compared it to embarrassing ‘Dad dancing’ but I think I could have given Michael Jackson a run for his money.

Fact 4 – If you engage me in sports then I play to win. It’s not the taking part that counts for me, it’s the trophy!

Fact 5 – I have a number of screws and bolts in my right ankle after a football injury. Every now and then I require an MOT.

Fact 6 – I was nicknamed ‘Kipper’ at school – apparently because I was slippery when I played rugby?!

Fact 7 – My dream holiday would be a weekend in Las Vegas, followed by two weeks in the Maldives “in one of those sea villas with legs”
