Every morning in August The Connection will be setting out and laying up a long breakfast table, where you can hunker in the courtyard behind St Martin-in-the-Fields Church near Trafalgar Square and enjoy a delicious menu prepared and served by their homeless clients.
We've teamed up with The Connection to dedicate two mornings specifically to those working in the hospitality industry to have breakfast together.
Proceeds will go towards The Connection’s vital work helping thousands of people every year get off, and stay off, the streets of London. Joining us for breakfast is the equivalent of providing a shower and breakfast for one of our homeless clients – so you and they can both start the day feeling sated and refreshed.
The courtyard will be open 8 – 10am, with breakfast served from 8.30am, so book your tickets and come along with friends, colleagues or on your own and have a proper breakfast and a proper chat!
This is the second event of a series of industry based events aimed at looking into some of the issues that we face on a daily basis and giving you the tools to understand them and move forward.
Are you finding it hard to make the next step in your career? Are you struggling with self confidence and is it holding you back from progressing in all walks of your life? Imposter syndrome and not feeling good enough is something that hits every single one of us, in fact a lot from queries and messages that we receive are based around this. That's why we wanted to focus our next event on self confidence, goal setting and managing insecurities.
You know the drill! Our monthly coffee mornings are a chance for you to have a half an hour chat with someone from the industry. Email us with what you want to talk about and we will match you up with someone who will give you the best advice.
We allocate 8 x slots per month so don't worry if you miss a slot we run them every month!
Coffee kindly from Ozone.

We will be joined by the following ice cream experts who will be taking you through an ice cream journey:
This is the first event of a series of industry based events aimed at looking into some of the issues that the hospitality industry is facing.
By employment, the hospitality industry is the forth largest employer in the UK. The UK hospitality industry was expected to reach a turnover of £100 billion by this year (according to predictions based on figures released by the ONS). According to the latest figures around '330,000 staff currently employed and working in the UK hospitality sector are considering leaving the UK due to Brexit'.
Recruitment in the hospitality sector is reportedly becoming increasingly difficult with many establishments believing that 'they will not be able to fulfil their staffing requirements over the next five years with domestic workers.'
Businesses must respond to the growing demands of hospitality workers of flexible working hours, better conditions, incentives and pay. Especially as many food based establishments are short staffed.
So how can we start to tackle this problem?
We are inviting guests who are experts in their fields from other industries to give an insight into what practices they have in place in the hope that we can learn from them. In addition to this we will be joined too by some big names in the hospitality industry so we can discuss the topic at hand.
