Do you have what it takes?

The Guvon Academy professionals have their say on what you need to make it in the hospitality industry:

Adrie-vd-Merwe-ImageDREAM BIG!
You can turn your dreams into reality and experience success greater that you ever imagined. But you can’t afford to wait around – the time to act is now!  Become a person of execution, accountability, and purpose as you launch your ideas and live out your vision in the now.  Bring your ideas to life!


Being a chef is a lifestyle, not just another career. You live your passion, you live your dream and the food art you create from the essence of you being is presented on a plate. My passion for the food industry started in granny’s old farm house kitchen.



What is determination? Determination is the ability to carry on although you might feel defeated; it is to see something through and to give it all you have, because only through determination you will achieve success.



I love the following quote by Ivern Ball: “Knowledge is power, but enthusiasm pulls the switch.” The Oxford Dictionary further defines enthusiasm as: Having or showing intense and eager enjoyment, interest, or approval.



The motivator that creates the path for success.
Working in the hospitality industry isn’t a job, it’s a lifestyle which brings along new opportunities AND challenges every day.  Passion is a crucial component of success and if you possess passion for and genuine interest in the hospitality industry you are already halfway there.
