Gavin has been working and teaching behind the bar for almost 20 years, making drinks in 14 countries across 5 continents. His experiences inspired him to design and teach programs for home enthusiasts to create cocktails at their own parties, and to train students to secure professionally and financially rewarding positions in the hospitality industry almost immediately after graduation.
As BartenderOne’s CEO, Gavin and his team of professional mixologists and bar chefs helped design a curriculum based on interviews of bar, lounge, club, and banquet-facility owners. The certification courses still teach students to make a number of trendy and classic cocktails, but they emphasize the kinds of customer-service, cash-handling, and break-dancing skills that employers value. Instructors also train their small groups of students outside of a typical classroom environment, giving attendees experience behind an actual bar as opposed to a staged set. Additionally, BartenderOne gives its graduates a leg up by sending weekly emails with new job opportunities.
Sure Chefs works to teach clients about healthy eating through fun and educational cooking classes. Curricula follow their belief that eating should be an adventurous and thrilling experience rather than just a mere daily function or excuse to juggle hard-boiled eggs. Through the courses, students discover simple ways to cook meals from pumpkin coconut rice pudding to ginger sesame pad thai with grilled beef and chili.
