Celia Kurta

I have been involved in the Hospitality Industry for 25 years with extensive experience in New Zealand and Australia and the UK.

My main subject areas are Front of House and Wine and Food Appreciation and I love passing on my experience and knowledge of these subjects to my students. Hospitality is an exciting, vibrant industry and to be able to convey this to our students and see them leave our programmes trained and ready to enter this industry makes my job very satisfying
