Vandana Harris (Sennocke 1990)

I recently made a career move and was appointed Managing Director of Investment Strategy at Unreasonable Group in April 2019. Unreasonable Group envisions a world in which the most valuable and influential companies are those solving humanity’s most pressing challenges. I’m always excited about all things Sevenoaks! (2019)

Hugh Williams (Grote 1990)

I am now running the Denver, Colorado office of global communications agency Weber Shandwick, where I head up the agency’s endurance sports practice. I’ve now been with the agency for 23 years, moving from London (where I worked with my brother, Ross Williams, Grote 85) to Chicago before setting up the Denver office. I’m lucky enough to combine my work with my passion for endurance sports, having completed 18 marathons and four ironman triathlons, including the infamous IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawai’i. I’m married with one son (16) and five dogs (!), living at 9000ft among the bears, mountain lions and various other creatures that roam around our garden. (2019)

Lieutenant Colonel James Lane (Groves 1992)

Following command of The Royal Dragoon Guards, I now command the New College of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. I am responsible for the education, training and welfare of all aspiring British, and many international, Army officers as they pass through the Academy. RMAS is a leadership academy and develops young men and women from all walks of life and prepares them for the most arduous and demanding leadership challenges at very early stages of their career. I continue to play an active role with Army cricket, having just led a tour to Pakistan, and enjoy rugby and riding. (2019)

Charles Rodmell (Fryth 1992)

I’ve launched a new business teaching people how to run and how to run better, be it complete beginners or runners recovering from injury, for fun, health or the sheer challenge. As captain of the Sevenoaks cross country team, it’s perhaps fate that I’ve ended up imparting my expertise to others. It’s online coaching, and all the details are here: (2019)

Karen Palfreyman (née Owen) (Park Grange 1993)

I am now residing on the beautiful island of Jersey. I am a Senior Teacher at Victoria College, mum to Jessica (14), Harriet (12) and Owen (9). (2019)

James Forbes Keir (Caxton 1994)

After Cardiff University, I worked for the International Baccalaureate Organisation for several years as their first Web Development Manager and then Technical Strategist. While responsible for developing the Online Curriculum Centre, I met former Sevenoaks teachers Paul Ruth, Peter Kino and Ian Dorton. After that, I set up Website Express Ltd, an approved Crown Commercial Service provider, to deliver similar digital solutions to non-profits and governmental organisations. I have been active in the Round Table, serving finally as South Wales Area Chairman, and my service was recognised in 2016 when I was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and as a Fellow of The Institution of Analysts and Programmers. I would love to hear from friends in the Class of 1994! (2019)

Alison Symons (née Asawaroengchai) (Park Grange 1994)

After 20 years in the Washington, DC area, I will be moving to the UK where my husband, Craig, has attained a job posting at the US Embassy in London. We have two children, Maia (14) and Aran (10). I look forward to spending more time with my brother’s family, new nephew and niece, and reconnecting with old friends. I hope to continue my activism work, especially in climate and civic engagement advocacy. (2019)

Megan Johnson (née Harvey) (Park Grange 1997)

I and my husband Luke and our two boys have recently moved to Singapore after a 12-year stint in Boston, USA. We managed a five-week stopover in New Zealand en route, and are now getting acclimatised to the heat and humidity after regular polar vortexes in Boston. I would love to get in touch with any Old Sennockians in Singapore. (2019)

Roshan Bharwaney (IC 1999)

I was very sad to miss my 20 year reunion at Sevenoaks in May due to requirements for my doctorate in adult learning and leadership from Columbia University. Now having completed all course requirements, I am ‘all but dissertation’. While continuing to work full-time for WPP in global leadership development, based in New York, I presented at the International Transformative Learning Conference on community responses to crisis. I also recently completed a study on the effects of storytelling training on resilience and developed a new model of resilience. My dissertation research will focus on how transformational leadership is applied and developed. I would love to chat with old friends and anyone interested in these topics! (2019)
