On Thursday 19 November we were delighted to hold the first-ever virtual Watsonian Club Business Breakfast, hosted by Watsonian Club President, Johnny Bacigalupo.
Eighty-six attendees from around the world including pupils, parents, staff, former pupils and members of The Royal Company of Merchants of the City of Edinburgh, were treated to an inspirational and entertaining talk by guest speaker Roz Colhart (Class of 1991).
Roz’s early career was spent working with prestigious companies such as Walt Disney World in Florida, Virgin Limited Edition on Necker Island and the hotel group Malmaison.
She is a Former Residential Director of The World, the only private residential community-at-sea where its residents may travel the globe without ever leaving home. The ship has a continuous worldwide itinerary that enables the vessel to span the globe every two-to-three years.
Roz currently spends the winter months in the Maldives working as Area Director for leading sustainable luxury resort, Soneva, in the Noonu Atoll.
She has been named as one of 50 people in Britain to be recognised as GREAT Inspirations by a Government campaign recognising those who have gone above and beyond during the COVID-19 pandemic to help other people, for her work in launching The Salonpreneur community.
The community is a free digital platform to support self-employed salon professionals which is now close to 3,000 members.
After her speech, Watsonian Club President Johnny Bacigalupo asked Roz a few questions, on behalf of the attendees. Principal Melvyn Roffe then gave the Vote of Thanks on behalf of all present.
