Shaker offer a bar training and consultancy solution to businesses in the hospitality industry from small independent restaurants and bars to groups, hotels and international brands.Our work ranges from one off bespoke bar training programs to full turnkey hospitality consultancy and training programs for corporate and private clients around the world.
Bar Consultancy & Training
We work in two specific disciplines: our hospitality training and corporate event teams dovetail snugly, so the brand values we work hard to understand and refine are realised consistently. However the single biggest difference about us comes down to the other stuff: not just what we’ve learnt, but what we are: approachable, passionate, creative. For example, when you hear us repeat the mantra that we listen to our clients, do feel free to look deep into our eyes. Because its all true: we actually mean it. Of course it takes time to know a business and understand what makes it tick. But it’s worth the wait. It’s how we get to surprise clients, to go that extra mile. Listening properly means not imposing outcomes; we suggest options instead, and plenty of them. And a business will listen to options if they come from a company considered a partner in a joint endeavour. That’s not a status we’d ever achieve if all we knew was cocktails; we understand people, too. And then there’s our scope, we work nationally and internationally, and having a base in Birmingham, London, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat helps to give our people another perspective and dimension to our operation.
