Meet Our Member – Mark McKee
In the first of our Meet Our Members blogs, I chatted to Mark, who is a self-employed electronics design consultant.
What is your job / business?
I run my own business called Marquee Electronics. I am an electronics design consultant and I bring ideas from concept to production. Have you ever had a “someone should make one of those” moment? Well, if so your first step is to call us and we can design you a prototype.
Do you have a typical day?
There are no two days ever the same and that’s what I like about what I do – the variety. One day I could get a request for electronics design for a heart rate monitor and the next day it could be for a pair of battery-operated hair straighteners – that scenario has actually happened!
What do you love most about what you do?
I’ve never been able to mould myself into an 8am-5pm workday, where you MUST sit at a desk for 9 hours a day. Working for yourself is very satisfy and also highly motivating.
And is there anything you don’t like so much?
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Go on more holidays…before kids come along.
And just for fun…
I’ve got two – Richard Branson and Arnold Schwarzenegger autobiographies. Inspiring and proves nothings impossible.
“If no one ever took risks Michael Angelo would have ended up painting the Sistine floor” – Neil Simon
Favourite way to relax?
Golf course (relaxing most of the time)
