Why should an organiser hire you to speak at their event?

One should hire me for knowledge on food, my easy personality and ability to make people laugh yet interested in the subject I am talking about.

Can you remember your first speaking engagement?

My first speaking engagement was at a meeting of “Leading Hotels of the World” on a very critical topic of “Chef Vs Manager”.

I would have loved to give a talk on multiethnic Britain, its values and contribution to secular world at the time London was bidding for Olympic 2012.

Anthony Robinson – his passionate way of presenting and getting across is inspirational.
