    I’ve got my own shop and I employ people.
    If I get kidnapped or killed on my holidays my only solace would be if the papers described me as ” a Surrey Business man”
    Obviously that would be a “middle aged sureey business man”.

    If you sold fertilizer you could be a middle-aged slurry business man.

    a) Definition of businessman

    : a man who transacts business; especially : a business executive[/I]

    b) A business executive is a person responsible for running an organization, although the exact nature of the role varies depending on the organization. Executives run companies or government agencies. They create plans to help their organizations grow.

    Does that help?

    The old lady across the street introduced me to her niece once as “that nice single business man I told you about”.

    I got a fun few weeks out of it anyway before the niece realised her aunt had oversold me. 😀

    While I was having a great time windsurfing in the Atlantic swell and waves off Cape Verde earlier in the week, jauntily dressed in just a pair of board shorts and harness, it struck me that if anything had happened, it would have happened to a “Pensioner” or “Grandfather”, and they would have no doubt described my “Partner of 48 years” with whom I had been busting some funky moves until 2am the night before.

    But dammit – we’re Property Developers and Landlords!

    the papers described me as ” a Surrey Business man”

    Well – because your a man you’ll be defined by your professional status. An artist friend of mine is frustrated by being continually labelled in the local press as ‘mother of two’. In her words ‘of what relevance is it in a story about my work that I’ve given birth once, twice or ever’. She keeps telling local hacks they should just refer to her a ‘a blonde bombshell’ instead.

    I have an awful feeling that I’m not, after all, business core and may well be support staff 🙁

    Living in Surrey helps but do you own a merc or Beemer?

    If not I’m not sure you can assume the role.

    Chaps ^^^^ it’s C suite.
    I’m sure that zippy is retail C suite – even in surrey.

    I’ve got a Cmax if that helps. It’s even a Grand Cmax which is even betterer.
    Attending a trade fair tomorrow and we take a little wheelie suitcase just like when you get Fired on telly.
    Talking of telly Channel 4 filmed a documentary in our shop which was aired at Christmas.
    So I run the risk of being labelled a media slut rather than my longed for “middle aged business man” if I get gunned down tomorrow.

    Was it about the shop or something wider?

    The shop was featured but not the subject.

    You run a small business so you are a small business man. If you also happen to be short that will just make it all a bit less clear.
