Conference & Functions Coordinator
I believe that being organised is the key to success, in fact I get a lot of satisfaction about organizing everything in my life. That is why my position as Conference & Functions Coordinator, where I am continuously organising successful events, gives me so much joy. After working in many areas of business I fell in love with the buzz and excitement of event management and I want my guests feel the same excitement and buzz that I feel every single time.
I grew up in India and spent half a lifetime cooking through the Middle East, New Zealand and various regions of Australia. After having some interesting experiences working at the Burj al Arab in Dubai, a luxury exclusive boutique lodge patronised by royalty in NZ, Marriott in Melbourne and most recently MONA in Tasmania, it is hard to buttonhole my style of food. It is influenced by all the different ethnicities of chefs that I have had the privilege of working with and the knowledge of some really passionate foodie amateurs that I have had the honour of learning from.
