Advanced Diploma of Hospitality Management (2006)

Functions and Events Coordinator of BDO Kendalls

Sam Powell’s life journey has taken him to exotic places – but it was his journey out of the kitchen that really changed his life. After completing Certificate I in Cookery as part of a VET in Schools program, Sam seemed destined to become a chef, with an apprenticeship and work experience in London under his belt. But when he returned to study at Box Hill Institute, he wanted a broader career. This led to a dual Advanced Diploma in Hospitality and Applied Design, work in catering and events and his nomination for 2007 Outstanding Student of the Year and Victorian Tertiary Business Person of the Year.

Now Sam coordinates spectacular cocktail parties and events in his role as Functions and Events Coordinator of BDO Kendalls on the thirtieth floor of the Rialto Tower in Melbourne.
