“COVID-19 has meant that hospitality will never ever be the same.  It has forced industry champions to reframe their thinking, tweak at the edges or make wholesale pivots.  This book distils a lifetime of learning, couched in contagious enthusiasm.  It will be the go to bible for navigating the choppy sea ahead.  Wes is a leader with integrity and commercial sensitivity.  In a short period of time he has left footsteps in my life and earned my trust.  I am proud to call him a friend and even prouder of his ability to turn around this book.  Do yourself a favour and read it immediately.”

Salvatore Malatesta, CEO & Creative Director, ST, ALi

And you, my very dear friend, are the storm.

Greg Hobby, CEO Taylor & Holmes Catering

A Sydneysider on a list of SA hospitality influencers – how can that happen? The national industry association CEO has shown himself to be a defender of the South Australian hospitality sector, working with government and industry, taking online questions from Advertiser readers and always picking up the phone when SA restaurant and cafe owners called, helping them stay afloat in tough times. The Premier has tapped Lambert to be part of his 15 member industry response and recovery council so he’ll be sticking with SA to accelerate our recovery.
