Pablo Martin – An Alumni Entrepreneur

Meet Old Millhillian, Pablo Martín. Pablo was a pupil at Mill Hill School in Burton Bank House from 1992-97. We spoke to him to learn more about his life during and after his time at Mill Hill School.

Since being a pupil at Mill Hill School what are you up to now?

I run a b2b events business that connects companies with professional investors at our summits around the world, along with an investor relations agency and media portal. 

What are your career highlights so far?

Having built a successful business for somebody else, I decided to start again and set up my own company. It was an exciting but scary time! I had no salary, a newborn baby and an idea. However, it proved to be the right decision. After 7 successful years of growing the business, we recently sold to a FTSE 250 media group.

What is your favourite memory from your time as a pupil at Mill Hill School?

I have many good memories and funny stories from my time at Mill Hill School. My favourite memory would be scoring 60 at the 1995 Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools Cricket Tournament in Barbados. I am also very proud of winning the house play competition as King Arthur in our onstage version of ‘Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail’. 

Who was your favourite teacher when you were a pupil at Mill Hill School?

There were lots of strong characters but I remember Mr Armstrong as a compassionate and down to earth teacher.

Can you tell us anything that you think would be of interest to the Mill Hill School community?

I’m pleased to say I still have many good friends from my time at Mill Hill School and remember my time here fondly. It’s only later in life that I realised how fortunate we all were to have fabulous facilities and vast grounds at our fingertips!

What is your favourite book and why?

‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak is a fantastic novel.  

Could you share an inspirational quote with us? How does it inspire you?

“Manners maketh man” said by William Horman; it reminds us that a little courtesy goes a long way in oiling the wheels of society, it’s all too often forgotten these days.
