Cooking With Embers – Corporate Cooking Challenge @ Incontro Restaurant


Cooking With Embers – Corporate Cooking Challenge

Cooking with Embers corporate nights aims to provide corporations with a unique experience in team building and leadership all revolving around food and wine.

andrew-embley1Andrew Embley teams up with Incontro Restaurant’s executive chef and part owner Pete Manifis to provide guests with an insight into how one of the biggest and most successful Western Australian organisations the West Coast Eagles, inspires and coaches their staff successfully year after year whilst incorporating and learning those skills through cooking.

Through hands on interaction and team dynamics we develop qualities needed in the people to make success possible. We show them how to identify and cultivate the will, the skill and way to succeed.

The Cooking with Embers Challenge acts as a metaphor for high performing teams and develops powerful team insights and transferrable skills.

Skilled in, leadership and business both Andrew and Pete guide your team through a corporate training experience that enables them to transfer what they learn to achieve rewarding outcomes.

andrew-embley2When guests arrive they will be split up into teams. Teams must then work together through a variety of activities for which they will be challenged on their knowledge on a range of food and ingredients. They will then be given a cooking demonstration by Chef Manifis.

Something magical happens when you combine food and learning.

That’s because food nourishes relationships.

Cooking and eating together naturally builds and reinforces bonds between people and Andrew and Peter know just how to enhance this process for outstanding results.

As a player at the West Coast Eagles for 15 years, Andrew has learnt many skills other than just playing football. He understands what it takes to be part of a successful group.

During his 15 years at West Coast Andrew has come in contact and been taught by world renowned leaders in goal setting, lateral thinking and leadership. Some of these programs ran for years at a time. With everything Andrew has learnt he has been able to put together a package that will transfer his knowledge to your corporate environment by incorporating food, a language that we all speak.
