As part of the ongoing development of ICATS Dr Ali Green recently became Director of Studies. To mark this, Dr Curtis and John Bailey (Ambassador for the British Society of Perfumers) presented Ali with a first edition of Introduction to Perfumery.
This was no ordinary copy but David Williams’ personal working copy complete with annotations. The Royal Society provided an appropriate setting for this presentation. ICATS has yet to celebrate its 50th anniversary but aspires to the 350 years ethos of the Royal Society of continual evolution to be in the vanguard of advancement but with continuity.
Dr Ali Green has been associated with ICATS for almost 20 of the 25 years it has been at Plymouth University. Dr Curtis said:
“Ali is uniquely qualified to continue the strategic development of ICATS. She is an experienced teacher and has the ‘X’ factor. Ali was awarded her PhD from Exeter University (one of the longest-established UK elite Universities) by part-time study and research.
She has practical personal experience of part-time postgraduate study. This empathy for the challenge of distance learning in the Aroma Trades is a vital advantage. I wish Dr Green every success and hope she has as much excitement and enthralment as I have enjoyed over the last 25 years’.”
Tony continues with ICATS in the new role of Principal Tutor, which will ensure continuity of study for existing students. He will also still be active in writing and developing new and existing learning material.
