    Wow thanks Gaz, your too kind.
    Since my World Class escapades I was headhunted and given the opportunity to open a new place of my own here Auckland New Zealand.
    I was sent to New York to find inspiration to open a New York styled cocktail bar and eatery.
    Ive been open for 7 weeks now and life couldnt be better.

    It just goes to show the benefits of competing in competitions like Diageo Worldclass.
