My greatest strength is relationship building, management and networking.
At my current company I am the first point of call for our chefs, sommeliers, bar managers, general managers and also our senior general managers.
I have built a level of trust with the staff and am able to adapt my language dependent upon my audience.

I have experience as a chef and with the commercial side of hospitality. This gives me a greater knowledge of the supply chain from all angles and also enables a level of respect from chefs which allows me to work in unison with them.
I thoroughly enjoy working with a wide range of people and my excellent relationship and communication skills assist greatly with negotiation and supplier development.
