Tony runs several websites where he teaches all aspects of about digital marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) best practices, local marketing and more. Plus the craft of building websites and blogs with Wordpress.

As training manager, the best moments I recall are when folks achieve things they perceived as impossible for them... It's golden!

He's also a little bit obsessed with graphics and video software... even though he can't use PhotoShop.

The other 2 things that float his boat are classical cooking and business management.

Tony's one of those old skool classical chefs that learnt all about fancy dinky cuisine... It's no wonder he sure can make a good sauce! 25 years in hospitality management has shaped him, literally.

The other thing has been interwoven into Tony is the development of business teams. Oh yes, he'll talk all day about the benefits of a well trained team, and has proven many times that his methods do work with how to get the best out of people in the workplace!
