Review from Steven Deer | Industry Manager | Innovation & Business Skills Australia

Gaining Trust & Respect Resources

“This is a well written guide for chefs to make that step up to leadership. What I loved most, was that it was full of ‘Real Life’ information and not just a rehash of a lot of text book talk.

It is full of tried & tested information from people who are well respected as being at the top of the tree within their industry.

All in all, it was a pleasure to read and even offered some insights to this old mind.”
