For the whole month this September, Ausphin held a series of career seminars in parts of Luzon and Central Visayas. The series focused on the culinary and hospitality industry, wherein aspiring professionals and fresh graduates were invited.


Luzon provincial delegates participated in the seminar last September 5, 2017, at Hotel La Corona at Lipa, Batangas. Another was situated at The Bliss Hotel, San Fernando, Pampanga last September 7. Both were facilitated by Ms. Brenda Mati, Ausphin’s Business Development Officer. Certainly, delegates from Metro Manila didn’t let this rare moment pass by. The third seminar took place at Arya Residences, BGC, Taguig last September 13 and 14. Joining in facilitation was Ausphin’s Director, Ms. Rachelle Yilmaz, and Chef Angelo Velante, a former Executive Chef of Boutique Venues in Australia who was also trained by Chef Gordon Ramsay. Currently, he is involved in Martin Place Social, a modern Australian dining and wine bar, located also at BGC. The last two seminars were conducted last September 19 at Calle Uno, Baguio City and September 23 at The Maxwell Hotel, Cebu – the latter being the same venue where they held their seminar in August last year. The speakers came together to ensure meaningful experience-based responses and learnings they could impart for the talk to be more engaging; as well as encourage the attendees to bring their skills to a higher level and become more competitive in the industry.

Through these seminars, Ausphin introduced the opportunity to these young and aspiring Filipino chefs and hoteliers who wanted to fulfill their dreams of working in Australia. The benefits of the training program were explained to the attendees. Ausphin also showed their commitment to help them advance in their careers through upskilling and training. More so, one of the event’s highlights was when Ms. Yilmaz directly answered some of the questions from the attendees. These queries revolved around their expectations of working in Australia. Above all, she gave emphasis on how Ausphin’s training program will play a vital role for the aspirants to be competitive in this fast-growing industry. Indeed, in just a short yet meaningful span of time, everyone had a great learning experience on how to become successful in reaching their dreams.
