Blyde WelcomeAssociate Member
Shetland's foremost training provider for the hospitality and tourism sector. I can provide vocational or bespoke, hands-on training to meet your requirements.
Blyde Welcome is unique to Shetland. You can count on me to support you in all your food and drink, tourism and customer service training requirements. Vocational qualifications are offered through SQA.
My love of hospitality started when I was still at school and got a part-time waitressing job working for Jim and Irene Williamson at 'Kveldsro'. Summer holidays were spent back in the hotel honing my skills and then after university, I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Catering and Accommodation Management. The next ten years were spent working in luxury, boutique hotels throughout the UK. This has led to me being passionate about providing great customer experiences and the importance of quality training. I am fully qualified to deliver such training and would like to help you and your staff become ambassadors for Shetland's hospitality and tourism industry.
