The Kennel Club is the largest organisation in the UK devoted to dog health, welfare and training.The Kennel Club provides its Members with social facilities at it’s head office in Mayfair. It houses a club room, restaurant and meeting rooms, and hospitality is a key part of its service to its Members. It also organises huge scale events such Crufts and Scruffts.
“I am more than happy to do all I can so that new and young talent comes through to the trade. I am also happy to learn from young and gifted people who may come up with bright ideas and different ways that work, none of us ever stop learning (not everything can be found in a book). If they have the enthusiasm then I will teach and show all I can, also they may need the industry to be sold to them, it may be that it isn’t something they considered previously as a career path.
It is really important that the younger generation gets a true insight into the wonders of the hospitality industry. All to often it is over looked as a career choice yet there are many avenues to choose. Sadly some people have a negative view or an unrealistic one of what can be accomplished.”
