I thought this course was going to be really boring, it isn’t. I have been to Hogarths Hotel to gain experience in making cocktails and bar service, conference hospitality, cooked in the kitchen and we ran our own charity fundraising event Stand Up to Cancer. All great for my confidence and skills.”
