So today is a happy/sad day for me because I wave goodbye to my wonderful colleague Ros.
I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Ros for the last 2 years and I can honestly say, every day has been memorable.
OK, so part of the reason for that is that apart from being very talented and passionate, she is one of the most inappropriate people I’ve ever met … and let’s face it, I know a hell of a lot of inappropriate people.
Even more shocking is she is from the land of ‘nice’ … Singapore. What the fuck?!
And yet, despite her incredibly tasteless jokes, her excellent range of swearing and her ability to start a client presentation with the words, “don’t judge us before you’ve heard us” … she is a fantastic human being and a wonderful planner who everyone – even the clients she [cheekily] berates – love.
I’ve adored every moment I’ve either worked with Ros or watched Ros in action and nothing gives me more pleasure than seeing her continue her exploration of what she is capable of doing and being. Even more so that she’s taking her fiancé – and Wieden colleague – Hiro with her.
[The man I saw her sheepishly walk out from behind a bush on Wieden’s rooftop garden with]
So to 72&Sunny Amsterdam, look after her … and by that I mean don’t turn her into a happy, positive person because apart from the fact that would mean you’re into ’brain washing’, it would also mean you’re stopping her be as brilliant as she can be.
Thank you for everything Ros, I’m super proud and excited for you.
