We're pleased to be able to announce the dates for the 44th Original Lakes Hospitality Trade Show are:

Wednesday, 13th & Thursday, 14th March 2019 at J36

Nigel was Food and Beverage Manager at The Dorchester until last month and is the only person in the hotel’s prestigious 86 year history to have achieved their ‘Manager of the Year’ accolade twice. He was instrumental in shaping the food and beverage businesses at both The Dorchester and Coworth Park over a 13-year period, and is also a former finalist at the hotel Cateys – the Oscars of the hospitality industry.

Drawing on his experiences of the luxury London hotel market, he will lead two seminars workshops aimed at inspiring the local hospitality sector around maintaining standards and the culture of customer service. Nigel was also one of the key managers at the Dorchester Academy, linked to their graduate programme, and will provide attendees with a unique insight into training the next generation and developing the skills needed to deliver a five-star service to guests.


Nigel will also be delighted to discuss The Dorchester’s exciting new venture, where your company may be able to benefit from Nigel’s unique knowledge and indeed that of The Dorchester Team as a whole. You heard it first here.

Quote from James Tasker, “Nigel is by far an away the most exceptional individual I have ever to have had the privilege of working with and to be able to have an hour of his time is in my opinion an opportunity that is not to be missed”. In my opinion and indeed many others he is one of the top food and beverage operators in the UK if not Europe.
