Love Them or They’ll Leave You – 50% of Employees are Planning to Change Jobs in the Next 12 Months 2015-03-03T05:41:17Z love-them-or-they-ll-leave-you-50-of-employees-are-planning-to-change-jobs-in-the-next-12-months VictorsFood Director Victor Pisapia says, “What we recommend is that companies book in for an ‘End of GFC’ booster session. Our cooking teambuilding events offer a genuine opportunity for upper management to interact with their staff on a level playing field. We can build important key messages into the event so if a company wants to express appreciation and gratitude to its people, this is a great way to do it because cooking creates a great buzz amongst participants and also allows people to let down their defences. Too often managers leave it too late and end up with staff who are unmotivated, unhappy and will tell anyone who will listen how much they hate their job.Teambuilding creates a positive atmosphere with the added benefit of being motivational and uplifting.” Enrico Coiera, Director of the Centre for Health Informatics says, “With a new team to pull together, several coming from interstate or overseas, Ineededto find a way to help them bond, and build work relationships that would sustain them beyond the 9 to 5.Our VictorsFoodteam building experience gave me all I wanted and more. The day itself was all that was promised, entertaining, engrossing, and tasty. But the payoff was in the weeksand months that followed. I had started with a group of individuals who were being polite to their new colleagues. I now had a team that had an experience over which they bonded, and were now doing the running all themselves, at work and after work. I could not be more pleased.” Business owners shouldn’t hesitate to get their team back on track before they start to head off in the direction of the competition.

Casa Herradura Turns Up the Heat with VictorsFood 2015-03-03T05:38:19Z casa-herradura-turns-up-the-heat-with-victorsfood The event, hosted by Casa Herradura, was a ‘thank you’ to its top bartenders and was the first in a series of three, with Sydney and Brisbane events to follow in the coming weeks. The hands-on workshop featured special recipes developed by VictorsFood Executive Chef Victor Pisapia to highlight the wonderful flavour and versatility of tequila in cooking. Casa Herradura Brand Manager Tamara Kent says, “The profile of tequila has risen dramatically in the past 12 – 24 months and that is largely due to bartenders who share their passion for tequila with their customers. Bartenders are educating consumers on the quality of the spirit, how to drink it, and are really championing the category. “Herradura focuses on quality and tradition as key brand features, so we wanted to provide a quality experience that supported this. With Victor’s focus on fine food, it was clear this was a premium event that would be both interesting, engaging, and would provide a different experience that was a great strategic fit with Herradura. “The guys don’t often get a chance to catch up and socialise outside of work and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. While some people had well developed cooking skills, everyone learned a lot from Victor. It was a fantastic balance of fun and information.” VictorsFood Director Victor Pisapia says, "Who would have thought bartenders could cook so well? I was amazed how eager everyone was to jump in to create new exciting dishes using tequila. When I saw them doing the tequila flamb prawn dish with big smiles on their faces, I knew the event was a winner. A great industry day for bartenders to enjoy the flavour of tequila used in food as well as drink – it sure got them thinking about new ideas for spice-related cocktails.” For further information about VictorsFood, please visit www.victorsfood.com.au For further information about Casa Herradura, please visit www.herradura.com -ENDS- About VictorsFood VictorsFood is Australia’s ultimate food experience company.   We create memorable, interactive team building, cooking parties, cooking classes, corporate events, international food tours , Australian regional food tours and market tours so people learn, have fun and eat well.   We also offer professional services in food consulting, training & coaching, demonstrations & presentations.

Teams get to learn about chocolate, and work together to make and enjoy a number of chocolate delights, with enough to take home, or back to the office—if they get that far. When you talk about incentives, it’s hard to go past chocolate.” Pisapia adds, “like all of our events, ‘Hot Chocolate’ suits any size group, anywhere, so we can do this event with teams across Australia.” ‘Hot Chocolate’ launches 10-11 August during Sydney’s Event Showcase at Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.
