From the ancient to the futuristic there are few things quite as multifarious as a restaurant. It is a business, a hobby, a passion and a calamity. Between a restaurateur and a chef, or the two combined, it takes ingenuity, business acumen, creativity, technical expertise, design or artistic sensibility, accounting sense, literacy, people skills, public relations proficiency, marketing know-how, negotiating talent – and it helps if you can cook. – William Sitwell, The Restaurant: A History of Eating Out

…….Not just a bunch of skills…about your persona…what you’ve experienced in life…that PLUS these skills creates a great manager … Alessio, (Sam’s Riverside) April 22
A great experience, particularly the psychometric “you’re not ‘wrong’, but not everyone works the way that you work. You must adapt. The superlens that you get from an early age. Egzon, (The Mothership Group) April ‘22
A wonderful therapy session! It (leadership) is not ABCD, it’s a journey. I didn’t have a clue that leadership is coaching, and management is just administration. When obvious things are explained to you in a way that makes sense it becomes practical; it’s coaching it’s not babysitting. Malika, (The Book Club, Shoreditch) April ‘22
