Franschhoek Wine Valley

Hospitality Fundi

My expertise is hard-won from every corner of the hospitality world. I’ve worked with top restaurants, events, festivals, guest houses and – in particular – 16 years as General Manager of one of South Africa’s most acclaimed Hotel/Restaurants – Le Quartier Francais.

My extensive travels for Le Quartier Français have given me a unique view on the world’s premium hospitality operations – staying in the World’s best hotels, dining in the finest Restaurants and taking part in many trade shows and workshops around the World.

Over the years I have also been involved in numerous renovations and new projects, giving me a special insight into the design and layout of restaurants and bars.

Please see below a list of what I do:

  • Training
  • Planning
  • Advising
  • Event co-ordination
  • Innovating
  • Bespoke Experiences
