What the guests said

Ryan Telford, Head Chef Owner of Hearth, said: "I'd highly recommend coming to The Staff Canteen's Networking Lunch, I had a really great time today."

Ryan explained: "It's nice to have a relaxed atmopshere to speak to the people attending, who were demonstrating their businesses, the other chefs at the table, and the sponsors. You had an appropriate amount of time to speak to each person, you got to engage with them at a casual level, nothing was forced on you, and it was a really nice experience."

Alex Smith, Account Executive for Lightspeed, said: "Today's lunch has been absolutely fantastic. It's amazing catching up with so many different individuals from the hospitality industry and hearing what's going on in their lives, and applying it to what Lightspeed are doing with technology in optimising efficiencies for the restaurant world."

Alex added: "What The Staff Canteen are doing here with the format, allowing sponsors to move from table to table and interact with different chefs from different backgrounds and sometimes even different locations, is really great. It's an informal way to be able to speak to everybody and interact with them, sat around a table eating great food, and getting on with the things that give us joy in life."

Jemima Hughes, Sommelier and Assistant Manager at Restaurant Myse, said: "It's been really informative getting to know a lot of people in the industry. I've tried some amazing wines from Nyetimber that I wouldn't have tried otherwise and it's nice to hear other people's experience working in the same industry."

Commenting on the set-up of the lunch and the relationship between the sponsors and the chefs, Jemima said: "It worked really well. It's not too intrusive but it's also really good that they mould into a conversation rather than sell you things straight to your face."
