When I had joined SHS I was already qualified as a chef and I appreciated the fact that I had much more to learn.
Hospitality is not easy at all, regardless of the avenue chosen within the industry. At SHS I was put to the test in most of the fields until I was sure which one I wanted to pursue further. This industry needs you to have a backbone and not be sensitive. I learned the importance of detail, which plays an intricate role when delivering a service to clients. At SHS I learned that if you work for it, you will reap the benefits. I also learned that one constantly needs to refresh their ideas and continue learning as the industry changes with the times. People will always appreciate a service that comes from an honest place.
I am now a private chef. I provide a personal touch to normal catering. I find that my interaction with clients makes them enjoy my service more. I plan to continue to grow my business with the skills I have learned and I hope to give others the advice to help them move forward, too.
I still can’t shake the German out of me which is great because it helps when I have German clients.
Lastly thank you to the staff at SHS while I was there. Mr. T your very loud voice has impacted me more than you know!
