Interviewee's Headshot

Tracey Clarke, Seven Families

1.What was the first album you can remember buying?

It would most likely have been either Donny and Marie Osmond, Showaddywaddy, or Gillan! Oh dear! Do I really want to admit to this?! I must say that my taste has evolved since then! 

2.What is the best thing about living on a narrow boat?

The relaxed pace of life within a very caring and friendly community. Cruising through the system in slow motion enables a far greater ability to absorb the beauty, appreciate the tranquility, and kind of feel the living history. 

3.What is your favourite film or book, and why?

The Bible. It contains a bit of everything; stories, biographies, scandal, poetry, history, teaching, wisdom, guidance, reflection, prediction, and a whole host of other fabulous things. Every opening of the Bible brings a new revelation, a new emphasis, a new contemplation, a new lesson.

4.If you won £1m tomorrow on the lottery what might you do with it?

I actually have no idea how to do the lottery!  The first thing I would feel obliged and pleased to do would be to clear our remaining debts. Next would come a very significant donation to Guide Dogs UK. I would dearly love to be able to say a good 'Thank you' for their fantastic gift of Oakley and all that he does for me and means to me. I rather suspect our daughters would enjoy our sudden ability to indulge them too! I had better stop dream-spending there! 

5.If you could change your career and do anything else instead, what might it be?

I would dearly love to be able to use my relatively new-found enjoyment of writing to enter into the world of regular magazine columns, and, even more appealingly, book-writing.

Marilyn Cole from Space01 talks about the importance of adapting the protection message


Pensions and retirement have been hogging the limelight ever since the Budget, but that doesn’t mean protection insurance needs to be left in the shade. However, those involved in marketing, selling and advising on protection may need to adjust their thinking as people’s financial lives are taking on a rather different shape. Actually two big changes are not directly pension…

Privates on parade by Peter Hamilton of Zurich


There has been an unusual play showing recently at the Donmar theatre in London, unusual not least because you are actively encouraged to keep your phone on. The play, Privacy, is part drama, part teach in, on the amount of data on ourselves we freely make available, knowingly or otherwise. Big screens behind the cast flash up details gathered from…

Phillip Cooke asks “Do you really need a customer care department?”


Most companies of any size boast the existence of a Customer Care department. Counter intuitive though this may seem, I think this is a flawed policy; it is either so in cultural terms or in the naming of the department. Putting the customer, in most organisations the only source of income, at the centre of the business is fundamentally a…
