The work experience Sylvia gained from these amazing Companies led her to a high-profile role in HR in Training & Development and Recruitment including Food Safety and Health & Safety Training, Auditing and Consultancy. Sylvia’s vibrant personality and ability to communicate at all levels within a Corporate environment led her neatly into the role of educator.
With her experience in the hospitality and catering industries and her passion for food hygiene, it was inevitable that her role as an educator would lead to her own training and consultancy company.
