A Month of Education at LLK!

May has been the month of education at LLK! Our team has been kept busy hosting several informative events at our HQ in Oldham, including a ‘World of Work’ day with Kingsway Park High School, a ‘Breakthrough Masterclass’ with Santander and a team meeting with the Business Growth Hub.

Here at LLK, we emphasise the importance of education- we are dedicated to sharing our industry knowledge with catering operations so they are armed with all the information they need to run a successful operation. It is because we understand the value of education that we jump at every opportunity to help others to expand their knowledge, develop themselves and achieve great things!

We are able to use our premises to facilitate education by welcoming students into our offices for ‘World of Work’ days! On the first of the month, Team LLK was joined by the inquisitive students of Kingsway High who were eager to get a sneak peek into the working world. They received a presentation outlining our products, services and company culture from our events hostess with the mostess, Grace. They then undertook a guided tour of LLK HQ where they listened to our fantastic team members explaining their role as well as their unique career paths that led them to their job at LLK. The pupils were finally led to our bistro-style demo kitchen for a pizza masterclass with our fab Development Chef, Fabio. The enthusiastic pizzaiolos-for-the-day got stuck in hand-stretching dough balls and even tossing bases before topping their creations with veggies and halal pepperoni. We hope that hosting students seeking career inspiration in this way helps them to pursue their chosen profession with passion and confidence!

We are also able to use our colourful meeting room to host informative team meetings and presentations. On the 14th, we hosted Santander’s ‘Breakthrough Masterclass’ in which Chris Booth, a financial expert from McKellens, and Dan Parker, the social media whiz behind Forty3Media, performed finance and social media MOT’s on local SME’s to help them grow and develop their businesses and achieve success! After the morning of serious business masterclasses was complete, Fabio provided our guests with a pizza making masterclass. The guests rolled up their shirt sleeves and got stuck into hand-stretching dough, topping and cooking their own pizza creations.

On the 29th, our pop-art style meeting room provided the venue for the Business Growth Hub’s team meeting. Their team underwent productive team talks before getting in the cal-zone for a calzone making championship! The standard of calzone cooking was high from our competitive guests but Fabio managed to select a first place and runner up; Debbie Jackson, Business Growth Hub’s Business Advisor, and Andy Hall, their Head of Mentoring!
