Matthew Hawkins

Internal Solutions Sales Consultant

Quick Fire:

My last meal on earth: My Mum’s chilli. It is the best thing I have ever tasted and I have never been able to replicate it.

The album I’d take to a desert island: Have to be AC/DC’s Back in Black. I listened to it non stop on a family holiday once and it still never gets old.

The movie I could have on repeat: Toy Story. It was the first proper film I watched and it is a childhood classic.

On my bucket list: I’d love to go to Vegas at some point. I’d like to think I’m fairly well travelled but so far America, outside of Disneyland, has evaded me.
