One man who has been leading the art of good food is Glynn Purnell. He started his craft when still at school, practicing and honing his skills on family and friends, and has made industry-recognised progress throughout his career development. So much so, his Purnell’s Restaurant in Birmingham boasts a Michelin Star.
Key to the success of his restaurants is the ethos of strong leadership, management, and teamwork. In this short feature I get to see a little snapshot of what happens behind the scenes, watch the team in action and ask Glynn a few questions, not about his cooking skills, but about his management and leadership style.
Named at Number 14 on 2009’s Birmingham Post Power 50 list, without doubt, Glynn Purnell is Birmingham’s premier chef, internationally recognised and respected by his peers, a fact that features in many magazine and newspaper reviews and frequent TV appearances.
Oh, and yes, I sampled one of the dishes (Goats’ cheese royal – textures of Beetroot – Rosary foam ), and yes, it was delicious. Comes with the project I suppose… call it a perk Thanks Glynn. I’ll be back, paying next time.
