Here's a profile and video of our awesome Hospitality tutor Fabio

A summer job at a hostel in Italy’s Dolomites was the start of a lifelong path for Fabio, who quickly discovered a love of customer service and hospitality. In a career that has spanned 26 years, Fabio has honed his skills in bars, nightclubs, pizzerias and hotels across Italy, London and New Zealand. He has worked in some of the world’s top restaurants, alongside some of the world’s top chefs. He’s a highly skilled sommelier (wine expert), an experienced hospitality trainer, and an enthusiastic advocate of the hospitality and cookery sectors. Now he’s sharing his knowledge and passion for the industry with students at Ignite Colleges. 

“With hospitality you have the ability to travel anywhere in the world and easily get a job. The skills you gain unlock so many career options, from working in a café, to opening your own restaurant, or managing events. Hospitality is not just a job – it’s a lifestyle, a passion, a craft. It’s an industry that has given me a rewarding career, a family, lots of friends and crazy times. It can do that for you too!”
