havering college catering forum
On Wednesday 3rd of January 2018, our catering students got a taste of what it is really like to work in the catering industry. At this event, the students received valuable insight how to gain the best skills behind the elusive industry. With an exclusive panel of some of the best chefs from all around the country and influential figures in recruitment, it gave in-depth knowledge that our students needed to progress and thrive in their chosen career path. The VIP panel consisted of the Head Chef Laurence Colmer and Daniel Piggott from the Palace of Westminster, The Conrad London St. James Executive Head Chef Michael Riordan, The Cranleigh Restaurant General Manager Lisa Fisher, The Savoy Hotel London Recruitment Advisor Lucas Perelstein, The Ninth Planet Personnel founder Marion Gordon and The Plough Bar and Restaurant Head Chef, Russel Door.

With each special guest giving a brief talk about their career and what they did to achieve their goals, it gave the students the opportunity to get in front of exceptional professionals and ask all the vital questions. With group workshops and recruitment discussions, Marion from The Ninth Planet Personnel advised;

Enthusiasm is critical when looking for the right candidate.

The Savoy Hotel recruitment advisor Lucas also agreed stating that;

It’s vital to have good credentials and solid catering qualifications.

Russel Door, Head Chef at The Plough restaurant in Cranham, gave a great insight into his career journey and how he;

Started from nothing to now being my own boss.

An example of exemplary achievements were our former catering student Daniel Piggott who completed his qualifications at Havering College and now works at The House of Commons. He recently won multiple gold medal awards for the best main course in a nationally recognised competition in the forum 2

After the successful event, our own Jubilee Restaurant manager at our Quarles campus in Harold Hill, Essex, Tony Pecoraro stated;

The Catering Forum is an excellent way for our students to have the opportunity to meet top chefs, catering executives and recruitment agencies, and be able to ask relevant questions to their future employers and recruiters. The event was enjoyed and appreciated by all sides.
