What is it about the industry that you love the most?
I love that it's still an industry run by the creatives. Of course, the business side of things helps with development and expansion but ultimately the foundation of good restaurants, bars and hotels is the creativity and thought behind them. It's also an industry that can take you anywhere you like. There is no set path. If you are well-trained, work hard and get some solid experience, the different opportunities that the industry can present are vast. I think that's something people tend to forget but for me it's a major attraction.
