Today we meet with jovial Jon from great Gloucester.
How long have you worked for us?
I have been with the company a little over eight years now
How long have you been a manager?
I joined as an assistant manager, and got my first club as a General Manger in Worcester in 2013.
What’s the best thing about your club?
I think it’s the team. We have some staff that have 20+ years service that know everything and everyone there is to know in the world of bingo, but they genuinely all care about customers and mix delivering brilliant customer service with ensuring they inject some humour into every day!
What’s the most exciting thing that has happened while you’ve been a manager?
I worked in Kingsbury Road club in Birmingham for a short while. One day we gave away the £20k jackpot in the afternoon session and then the evening session of the same day!
Why should people come to your club?
For a win, for the thrill, for a laugh, or for some great company. Lots of people visit for all sorts of reasons, but there is something for everyone and we get people from all sorts of different backgrounds and age ranges. I would say try it once! You’d be suprised.
What are your favourite hobbies?
Pretty standard, gaming and football. Wheter it’s on X-box, PC or VR headset, I’ll be gaming almost every night. I’m also an avid Birmingham City fan and watch all sorts of football
Hamster sized hippo or hippo sized hamster?
Hippo sized hamster would be hilarious for a couple of hours but if I have to look after it I’d have to go hamster sized hippo
What’s your biggest fear?
Needles, I shudder at the thought
What’s your karaoke song?
I’ll have a crack at anything but I sang Elton John at the team Christmas party, so I would say that
What’s your hidden talent?
I don’t know – it’s very well hidden! Maybe Beat Saber on my VR headset – I’m suprisingly good at it
If you could be on any TV show what would it be and why?
I don’t watch much TV but I would say some crime drama or courtroom drama. Like to watch true story crime series, so I would be an investigator in one of those.
What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?
Probably have to be Birmingham City
Anything else you’d like to add?
Try anything once and hopefully we will see you soon!
Thanks for answering our questions, Jon. We love your attitude, yes! Try everything once.
