The birth of the F&B Manager?
The F&B Manager of today must be a leader, a coach, a mentor, produce innovative menus and keep up to date with trends, fads and fashions of the drinks industry. We are in a transition period in the club industry; with successful clubs recruiting hospitality professionals who have a passion for their jobs and thrive when looking after members and their guests.
