Hakuna Matata with Skål International Sydney
Martin Edwards, General Manager at Bench Africa, was the guest speaker at a networking event hosted by Skål International Sydney on Wednesday night.
Providing insights into tourism trends and challenges in Africa, and providing his own tips on making the most of an African adventure, Mr Edwards pointed out thattravelling during the low season is a great thing to do, “when you’re looking for an elephant, it doesn’t matter if the grass is long or short, you’ll see the elephant”.
The event was held at The Apprentice Restaurant in Ultimo, TAFE Ultimo’s training restaurant, with the restaurant researching and serving Kenyan inspired cuisine especially for the event.
“We wanted to hold an African themed event” said Walter Nand, Skål International Sydney President, “but we couldn’t find a suitable venue with African cuisine so we asked The Apprentice if they could do it”.
“The food here has been fantastic, it’s probably the best Kenyan cuisine I’ve had” said Mr Edwards elaborating further on his experiences in Kenya.
The event was an opportunity for Skål members and guests to network and learn more about Africa and Kenya, where Skål World Congress is being held later this year.
