It’s a quick and simple platform, not to mention an amazing opportunity to increase your whole team’s learning and development.
Typsy’s courses are delivered by leaders in the hospitality industry, including World Barista Champion Sasa Sestic, and Appetite for Excellence Young Waiter of the Year Brooke Adey.
