Guy Hands: The Dealmaker - Lessons from a Life in Private Equity
Join Guy Hands as he speaks about his book The Dealmaker, of which The Times said, ‘The Dealmaker must be the only book about private equity that reads like a thriller.’ Guy will give a frank account of how a severely dyslexic child who struggled at school went on to graduate from Oxford and become a serial entrepreneur.
Taking you inside the previously very secretive world of private equity, Guy will explain how this multi-billion-pound sector operates and what opportunities it offers, as well as giving an appraisal of the huge deals he has done and the one that almost bankrupted him as a global financial crash loomed on the horizon. Finally, he will talk about how Covid got him to reassess his life and how Guernsey provided the sense of peace he needed. Chaired by Rob Shepherd.
