This course looks at how to turn your dream into reality and understand better, how to work methodically through the requirements.

First, we look at the foundations of establishing a successful hospitality business -
- the concept
- the important sales to ingredient cost rations
- staffing levels
- profitability behind these costs

SETTING UP
We look at key information regarding the physical setup of a business. Starting with important information from Auckland Council, or your local council, about zoning for a location and approvals for alterations to a building, formulating a food control plan, getting approval for an alcohol licence.
We then look at the equipment you may need to use and commercial kitchen food safety requirements - from refrigeration and extraction systems to types of ovens and coffee machines, flooring and much more.

HOW TO COST
We will discuss look models of how to calculate what you should sell your product for - the retail margins, as well as the cost breakdown as well, has how you are going to pay your self.
Lots to think about and learn in this one day workshop.
Celia Hay, director of the New Zealand School of Food and Wine and hospitality entrepreneur having established 10 different business and has a wealth of knowledge about how to establish and then grow a business. In 2020, Celia Hay and the New Zealand School of Food and Wine will celebrate their 25th Anniversary.
The seminar includes Celia Hay’s book How to Grow your hospitality business - a guide for owners and managers.

Buses

Linda from Henderson

Still on the buses theme of a couple of weeks ago.
Why doesn't the average driver make the bus kneel when it is obvious that someone with a walking frame or disability or a massive stroller cannot climb up the high step to board? Also, they are not meant to take off before the passengers are … View more

Who is stopping you from success?

Anthea from Lifestyle Happy Place

In an ideal world everyone we come across during our lifetime would be supportive of our goals, dreams, happiness and fulfillment.

In an ideal world everyone we come across during our lifetime would be supportive of our goals, dreams, happiness and fulfillment.

In this real world however the opposite is often the case. People who, for any number of reasons, may have tried to hinder you from achieving what you wanted at times in your life and seem to make it their business to stop you. Note: they may not even know they are doing it.

The vast majority of people who interact with you are not bad people.

They may mean well, they may not intend to harm you, they may not even realise that they are being a stopper in your life. But the honest truth is that they have not walked in your shoes and don't have your goals, dreams and desires in their heart.

Take a moment to reflect on this.

There may be one or many. They may be family members, a spouse, parents, boss, coworker, friend or rival. Quite possibly there may have been one or more individuals that reoccurs throughout the years that acted like stoppers to you.

Are you stopping you from progressing?

Make a commitment to yourself that you will not let the stoppers you encounter hinder your progress. The change you encounter from this promise to yourself maybe the magic that you need to achieve your goals.

Wishing you every success.

St John staff in hazmat suits help three people into ambulance🚑

Fiona from Henderson

If the case did not meet the definition for coronavirus (Covid-19), then why were the St Johns crew all in hazmat suits?
Did they suspect it was upon picking up the patients and later it was confirmed to be not the case or was it something else going on?
Are we or are we not going to far?

A Farewell to Neighbourly but not a final "goobye"

Matt from Henderson

Just putting a quick post saying that I may not be using this "Neighbourly" platform as much as I used to now. I will still use this though to message individuals my views on certain worldly topics which I will not name because of the "guidelines" here. I will joining up with other believers in Jesus on this site more on christianchat.com...

I hope that everything goes alright with everyone else. If anyone wants to post me things individually, make sure you don't post anything rude or harshly on them otherwise I will just delete them. I love all of you as a brother in Christ. I pray that our nation will work out our differences, having this forum a more open minded where we can discuss such views which I can't discuss because of the "guideline" on Neighbourly.

I wish everyone a happy 2020 and pray that many will come to Christ before he returns.

Matt
