It's vital that business owners and managers take time away from their business to work on their business. The Association's professional development programme offers short courses for owners, managers (and staff), so that hospitality professionals can take just a couple of hours out of their busy working week to focus on upskilling and improving their business.

The courses are held in Auckland at the Restaurant Association's venue, taste, ground floor, 45 Normanby Road, Mt Eden and every two weeks at a different region around the country.

For more information on what's coming up, or to book a session, phone Jo Birdsall on 09 638 8403 or email
