In this episode we have the amazing Justine Baker joining us – Justine is the CEO of the Solotel group, which includes iconic venues such as the Opera Bar, The Golden Sheaf, and Kings Cross Hotel to mention just three of the ca 30 venues that form part of their business. I first met Justine a year or so ago or so when I was looking into how we could improve the number of female managers and leaders across our bar and restaurant business, and the conversation we had then left me super inspired and I have wanted to interview her for our Podcast ever since. Whether you’re just starting out in hospitality or you’re a manager or an owner yourself, there is a lot to learn from Justine’s approach to hospitality, management, team building and just life in general.
In this very first Ananas Podcast Sven talks with Tim Philips, multi award winning bartender & bar owner. Tim is perhaps the world’s most awarded bartender having won both the titles of U.K & Australian Bartender of the Year, as well as taking home the global title of World Class Bartender of the Year.
