Meet Rosy Holt

Regional Director


Never underestimate the power of networking – It’s never just who you know, but who they know!

Entrepreneur, business owner, mentor and public speaker, Rosy Holt’s career was forged in the heat and heart of the travel and tourism industry, with twenty Italian-based years ensuring five-star accommodation and service, sourcing and identifying properties and negotiating contracts. Blending saintly diplomacy with instinctive understanding of what makes different people tick, she established a reputation for being immovable when it came to standards she expected to be met.

This background proved a sound springboard, for one of her current businesses – a highly successful consultancy, allowing owners and managers insight into customers’ views. Mystery shopping, online presence improvement and training and development, backed by the years of practical experience of Rosy and her team, provide companies with impartial input and quantifiably beneficial results.

Alongside the consultancy, Rosy runs several Businesswomen’s Networking groups – exceptionally effective forums for established companies, professional practices and newly launched businesses, providing support; collaboration; training; a lot of laughs and a huge amount of business!

Rosy Holt runs “Networking the Athena Way” groups for pro-active business women meeting monthly at lunchtime in Potters Bar, (second Tuesday of the month) in Enfield (third Thursday of the month), Enfield West (fourth Tuesday of the month) and lastly the Borehamwood and Radlett group (meeting on the fourth Wednesday of the month).

Most inspirational person: Any individual prepared to stand their ground, speak their piece and bring authenticity to the table.

Passionate about: Travel. Fascinated by the pleasures and pitfalls of cross cultural understanding.

Favourite quote: “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Greatest achievement: Earning a living doing something I love and hanging on to my sense of humour throughout.

Life Turning Point: Understanding that starting again at 50, was something I could do – and could do well!
