Dyslexia and the Hospitality Industry

January 6th, 2012

 

In our latest Bulletin we focus on dyslexics who have found success in the Hospitality industry. In particular we focus on Marco Pierre White and Stephen Mannock, now General Manager of Wivenhoe House Hotel, who both started as chefs partly because more academically orientated careers were closed to them. As Marco Pierre White says:

“I was very fortunate that I entered a world where I didn’t have to read or write. I entered a world of cooking where I expressed with my fingers and so that built my confidence. Over the years I’ve taught myself how to read. I’ve taught myself how to spell.”
