The first leg of Watson’s Boarding School Blitz is complete! After visiting one school in upstate New York and nine in the Toronto area, many new connections within the boarding school community have been formed. Watson is moving on to Ottawa, Montreal, Vermont, and Maine to share how peerTransfer can make international payments much easier and less costly.
Hope you enjoy this photo journal from the previous week!
