"I was very impressed with the training sessions that our team attended. The information that Gary shared with the team was insightful and well presented. He was able to present the information in a fun and interesting manner which was well received by all. Gary made the culinary team members understand the importance of guest service and how the actions and behaviors of all team members (including back of the house) affects our guests. I would highly recommend the training session to any group that is looking to improve their performance and stay ahead of the pack."
