With much of the Middle East housebound due to the coronavirus outbreak, Gates Hospitality CEO and founder Naim Maadad believes it's the perfect time for expertise sharing and knowledge swapping.He said: "While we all navigate our way through these challenging times, I encourage everyone to use their skills and pass on their knowledge so when we’re all back to normal, our teams come back inspired and more knowledgeable than ever before.
"If you have tips and tricks that you’d like to share with your colleagues then please reach out to us on email@example.com and we’ll get you involved"Gates's top chef duo behind the ever-popular Folly restaurant, Nick Alvis and Scott Price, and Julien Pilard, the restaurateur responsible for Bistro Des Arts will be among the experts sharing their advice, but anyone with wisdom to impart is encouraged to take part.
Hospitality Home Schooling will launch on Sunday, March 29 and be streamed from the group's social media channels.
