EXP101

A new industry, a new voice.

We created EXP101 as we felt that an emerging new industry required a new voice, we wanted to turn the pyramid upside down and talk to the whole industry & not just the industry leaders. Through our events and content creation, we are creating a library of information that will help & support those entering the industry and those climbing the career ladder or even opening their own business. Whether it is in-person leadership training or gaining skills from our online platform, we are here to tell stories and solve problems.

My family was in hospitality before I could walk, they ran hotels and I spent my early years in wonder of chefs & servers having fun and making people happy! Why wouldn’t I follow in their footsteps?

I spent the next 20 years working in and around operations across different sectors such as casual dining, fitness, contract catering & pubs.

I have held senior operation positions in both global brands & challenger brands. I have been able to add influence and impact where ever I have been. Hugely experienced in strategic roll-outs having opened over 50 sites and also designed and implemented a new site operational planning process.

Skilled in moving numbers in the right direction by influencing those around me rather than forcing the issue and causing bottlenecks to slow down growth & impact profit. People will always surprise you.

From Kp to holding executive board positions I have led some fantastic teams and been influenced by some legendary leaders. Now I want to help others share their stories and support the industry that has been so good to me.

I love hospitality, that’s always my starting point.

I proudly work across sectors sharing the skills that life as an operator taught me, through venues, bars, coffee shops, restaurants, and food halls I evolved & will help your business & team do the same.

I believe that guest experience is a transferable skill, irrelevant of industry or the customers you have, we all want to ensure they have the best experience possible because you are on the front line only because you care about others happiness as much as you do your own, the 2 things are inextricably linked.

So I facilitate learning across the industry, whether that be face to face in small groups, on a stage in an auditorium speaking to your entire business, or indeed in this online world through webinars, the objective is always the same, to ensure that as you have lent me your time, I will add value to your mind.

The key to the success of any business is an engaged team, sharing ivory tower strategies & believing that they will be successful is NOT.
