Lowdown

There's no denying that Harrison's enigmatic presence in the direct marketing industry has been missed since his departure from HTW. But by all accounts, this is not the last we'll see of Harrison. Rumours are rife about a potential book in the offing, but who knows which of Harrison's fascinations will make the cut: the Italian-American Mafia or creativity in direct marketing? Watch this space.

A 2,700-year-old Phoenician ring.
