MITCH PHILLIP – TAIT: HEAD CHEF, OZONE COFFEE, EMMA STREET, LONDON
Hailing from a small beachside town on the East coast of Australia, Mitchell has over a decade of experience working in the hospitality industry.
Mitchell has worked at some of the most prestigious lodges and restaurants across Australia and New Zealand, including a Head Chef role at Auckland’s Clooney and Chef roles at the Sydney institution Marque and Queenstown’s Matakauri Lodge.
Upon moving to London, Mitchell worked at Michelin-starred Leroy, before making the move to Ozone Coffee to take the role of Head Chef at their recently opened second site, Emma Street.
While his career has facilitated the forging of his own food philosophies, it’s also motivated him to encourage positive change in the industry by setting up ‘The Illicit Project’: a non-profit pop up series that works to bring awareness and break stigmas around mental health in the hospitality industry as well as raise funds for various mental health charities and foundation.
JAMIE LUMSDEN – LIFE COACH AND HEAD CHEF, COLCHESTER
Jamie is the Head Chef of a private members club in Colchester and fills the rest of his time as a Life Coach.
For the last few years, Jamie has been training with highly-experienced coaches and therapists – working alongside them to understand the unconscious mind, how it drives our attitudes and behaviours, and how it ultimately leads to our self-sabotage.
Working within mental health and raising awareness within hospitality has become a passion for Jamie, long before it became as highlighted as it is now. Working in his first role as Head Chef at 24, he now tries to ensure his kitchen team are willing to talk and share about any issues they may have and encourage a positive mentality towards “speaking up”.
