Episode 208 ft Duncan Thomson from Kick On Group
Using quality training to develop outstanding talent with CEO of the Kick On Group Duncan Thomson
The portfolio of venues Kick On group spreads far and wide from the Melbourne CBD, inner city, Regional Victoria, Regional NSW, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
With such Iconic venues are Terminus Hotel in Fitzroy North, The Plough Inn in Southbank, Brisbane and the new landmark venue The Continental in Sorrento which is a collaboration with Scott Pickett, it is obvious that the group will continue to grow with quality venues moving forward.
The goal of the group is to create an environment in which our people feel proud and inspired to deliver amazing hospitality experiences, so I feel it was great to unpick that more this week with the CEO of the Kick On Group, Duncan Thomson.
