Networking group created for West Midlands’ catering and hospitality industry

11/09/2017 - 07:15
A new not-for-profit networking group has been launched for hospitality, catering and events businesses in the West Midlands.

The Catering Hospitality Education Forum (CHEF) has been created for industry professionals to share best practice, debate key issues and celebrate the industry.

Those to have already joined the group includes Simpsons, Harborne Kitchen, the NEC, Gusto, University College Birmingham and the Hyatt Hotel.

According to CHEF founder Conrad Button, members will meet on the second Monday of each month, beginning today (11 September) for a structured Q&A session with an invited industry specialist, followed by networking.

Brunton, managing director of Birmingham-based recruitment company, Tonic Talent, said: “I have been a part of the hospitality and catering industry in the Midlands for over 20 years, and it’s an industry that I’m extremely passionate about.

"It dawned on me that operators don’t have a chance to get together and share best practice like other industries do, so I decided to create CHEF. We have some great special guest speakers lined up and some excellent members already confirmed, so I’m really excited to launch our first event.”

10% of each £200+VAT per annum membership will be donated to the suport charity Hospitality Action.
