Frank’, Camorra, MoVide, Melbourne…

“Most importantly, I wish I had known more about the business side of running restaurants, I’d recommend doing a small business course that teaches you about managing staff, cashflow, and reading and managing a profit and loss statement. Don’t assume that you can do it all, but you need to have that basic understanding.” (Source: Restaurant Catering Magazine).

“I have really enjoyed the 2-day workshop with Linda. I have gained so much more knowledge and I am feelig more confident and determined to not only start my business but also work hard at making it a success. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone looking into their own business who is unsure where to begin, you will not be disappointed.” (Niki Telford, Coffee Shop).
