Talking career progression in hospitality on International Women’s Day

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Mar 8, 2018 8:36:00 AM

This year the theme for International Women’s Day is “Press for Progress”. It asks our community to come together and continue the movement of working towards gender parity, which already has strong momentum. Any step of progress, so long as it’s in the right direction leads us closer to gender equality.

Although sexual harassment is a hot topic, with the #TimesUp and #MeToo campaigns attracting significant social media attention, progress for gender equality can take various forms.

The freedom women have to choose their career, rather than be expected to fulfil a gender-based career is progress. Women returning to their careers after motherhood, or even prioritizing their career is progress - things that at a previous time were not possible.  

In the hospitality industry there are already leading women who demonstrate that you can progress towards a powerful career.

Talking booze and bartending with Chris Hysted-Adams of Black Pearl Bar

Posted by Glennise Pinili on Feb 28, 2018 8:44:00 AM

Black Pearl Bar for many Melburnians is an institution, and it's easy to see why. The 15-year-old Fitzroy bar has collected plenty of awards including: International Cocktail Bar (2017 Spirited Awards), Best Bar in Australia (2017 World’s 50 Best Bars Awards), and Best Cocktail List award (2016 at Australian Liquor Industry Awards), to name a few. 

However despite the accolades, the bar remains a cool, modest and casual place for locals to kick back and have a few drinks, which General Manager, Chris Hysted-Adams believes is what makes Black Pearl Bar a successful one. 

Former Bartender of the Year (2009; Bartender Magazine Australian Awards), Chris Hysted-Adams ventured from the corporate world to bartender life and hasn't looked back since. 

We chatted to him about the importance of your team, bartending tips and how to stay relevant as a hospitality business. Here's his story.
