Restaurant consultant, food professional and business development expert.

I have 30 years of experience in the food and restaurant business and has carried out virtually every role in the industry; from owner and chef of acclaimed award winning pub and hotel, to board director of a prestige London hotel and restaurant group.

My philosophy is always to listen, observe and then act, whenever possible in partnership and collaboration with the client, helping to achieve sustainable solutions.

I am founder and CEO of CBFS (Catering.Business.Food.Solutions), a restaurant and food business consultancy advising a broad range of prestige UK and international clients. I represent a number of business as Non Executive Director, advising at board level.

I am very proud to help and advise some of the greatest names and brands in the business, as well as some unknowns on the road to success.
