The old wise saying of “as one door closes another opens” could not be truer from where I stand. Much has taken place in my world as well as in the world of restaurants. I am soon launching my own business called 5thsense. To stay in touch with my new direction sign up to my blog and all things social will be launching soon…
Since closing the doors of Bretts Wharf Restaurant eight months ago and my departure from my other restaurant Tank Restaurant and Bar there has been a new Good Food Guide 2013 launched, congratulations to Natascha Mirosh for the go-to-foodie-guide of all guides and congratulations to my old team at Tank for receiving another coveted one hat. There has been a new Top 50 Restaurants in the world named and there have been so many new and exciting openings of fabulous cafes, bars, pop-ups, trucks and glam restaurants I find myself wanting more hours in every day to get there and try them.
Closing a large Restaurant business and leaving another certainly had it’s challenges but it also meant I could reassess priorities and balance. Add a little soul searching and a new direction took shape, away from the day to day running of restaurants to sharing my knowledge & passion not only for food and hospitality but beyond. I have come to discover that for me helping is my path & now with many years of “experience” to refer back to, my next journey is about sharing and helping businesses understand where gaps are in their strategy & the elusive x factor that is needed to create long term competitive advantages; help build better businesses from startups to industry icons.
I will also be blogging about food, people, travel & lifestyle along the way. New beginnings, I would love to share the journey.
