Darren in the spotlight

My proudest moment working at Annetts & Orchard was:

Having only recently joined A&O in 2021, I would say passing the relevant Diploma to become a Financial Adviser. It was no easy feat.

The three things I love most about my job are:

Being welcomed and supported by such a wonderful team at A&O; meeting new people and learning something new about financial planning each and every day.

On an ideal weekend, you can find me:

Snow permitting – skiing or at a Christmas Market in Germany.

Sun permitting – sailing or paddle boarding on the Italian Riviera or Croatian coastline.

My favourite holiday is:

Exploring any unseen parts of the world with my wife and kids, preferably in luxury transport!

I turn the radio up when they play:

Almost any kind of dance music, or any classic 70/80s music that I was subjected to as a child.

The first album I bought was:

 Now That’s What I call Music! 34 – from Woolworths on my 13th birthday.

If I could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, I would win a medal in:

Washing a car, or lawnmowing.

When the dessert menu arrives, I’m looking for:

My spoon and a napkin, to eat whatever arrives!

My pet peeve is:

Any kind of car trouble, which I’ll probably attempt to fix.

The best gift I’ve ever received is:

A Ceremonial Sword.

The three people at my dream dinner party would be:

Gino D’Acampo, Arnold Schwarzenegger and the late Prince Phillip – that would be interesting!
