As we sit in the email councils local watering hole enjoying the last of the questionable British summer, I get some insight into the man that is Guy Hanson as he enjoys a cold ale……

Describe yourself in 3 words: “Hard working”, “Loyal”, and “Honest”

How would your friends describe you: “********* - Rudely” (I find that hard to believe)

Best advice you have received: leverage your business relationships (read into that as you will)

What is your motto: Go high or go home – (clearly a salesman)

If your house was on fire what’s the first thing you would save?: His dog as he believes his family is capable of escaping. He hopes…

What is your guilty pleasure?: Biltong – he has been tempted to make it but not just yet.

Who would play you in a film of your life?: Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones, Starwars, etc.) He can even make a bullwhip crack – did someone say prove it?

Most overused word?: “The” - What a geek

Person you most admire?: Matt Blumberg

Greatest Achievement?: Life is a work in progress

Best thing about email?: I've made a living from it

The one thing I wish everyone knew about email is?: It’s not all spam

Email I always open?: Firebox

Most interesting email you opened recently?: It was from the national lottery informing me they had some interesting news!! That has my attention as I bought a ticket just the other day it must be the big payout I've been waiting for. Alas, it was not, just a mere £2.90 looks like I better keep working for a little longer.
