September 2018

I am delivering a course this month for vineyard owners on delivering food offers whilst reducing the risk to their reputation and business. I am also speaking at an Enterprise Nation event in Canary Wharf on how to negotiate the jargon jungle of approval when pitching to blue chip clients. 

I will also be taking a break and will be going away for a trip to Bilbao.

Alimenti has been in the local Chamber of Commerce news click here to read the article. I am starting my monthly group calls which will cover food safety and business topics for my new members in September. The Topics include “Top 10 tips to negotiate the  jargon jungle of approval” and ” HACCP for business owners”. The full programme for the coming year will be available shortly.

I am also developing Client portals where all the documentation that I have created for my Clients will be available to download from one place. It is a secure area, unique to my individual Clients. No more searching through emails to find the relevant one.
