Mentoring is often recommended to young people as they step into their careers and progress through their first few years deeply involved in learning as much as they can.

Finding a mentor is not always that easy to achieve. Who do you ask, will they say yes, do they have the knowledge to advise in their particular field? Mentor programs are also incredibly rare. 

Hospitality expert Allan Campion understands this well and has created a mentoring program for those launching their careers in the hospitality industry. 

The mentor program consists of one-hour monthly calls with Allan to discuss the applicants work, progress and industry opportunities. Digital technology provides all the tools we need to connect globally.

A written follow up to each monthly call will be provided to document the discussion and goals for the month ahead.

It is recommended applicants have completed their initial training and are in full time work to really get the best from the opportunity.

Allan’s life-long passion for food began when he first stepped into a restaurant kitchen as a trainee chef in 1979. He knew instantly he had found his job for life.

Over 40+ years he has worked as a chef in Australia, Ireland, England and Turkey has cooked on ships travelling throughout Asian and the Pacific, run kitchens for a theatre company, boardrooms and private clubs. His career has taken him from cooking to food writing, working as a restaurant reviewer, and as a consultant through to operating a food store and appearing on TV.

Over the decades he has cultivated a network of business and hospitality experts across a range of sectors from running restaurants and cocktail bars, to business planning, cooking, wine and drinks, specialists in PR, social media and marketing.

Allan draws on this network for advice and assistance for his mentoring program, which means participants will gain invaluable insights and guidance.

Today he divides his time between creating the very best customised events, VIP food tours and premium dining experiences, collaborating on food and travel copywriting and consulting projects, industry mentoring, cooking classes and speaking engagements.

This mentoring program is $250 per month 

Note – Three free mentoring positions (six months) are offered annually.
