Sachin Khanna, Owner, MeatUp

I've known Des for 5 years as a consultant and a friend, he developed our L'Anima Cafe brand in Broadgate West. He performed a 360 degree delivery of concept, team and opening of the L’Anima Café. Des is still retained by me to monitor the operations of both L’Anima and L’Anima Café. He provides me with an excellent combination of strategic and operational advice for both restaurants.

Des is able to reach out to his extensive range of contacts to help with various problems as they arise in the normal course of running these two restaurants. This includes personnel, marketing, design, as well as his knowledge of financing structures for the restaurant business in the UK. I found Des professional, with high standards and he hit key deliverables on my projects. He gives direct, and honest advice together with solutions that can, and in my case, led to positive actions which I have implemented. This is very helpful in the English business environment. I strongly recommend his services.
