Shannon Bennett (Founder Vue De Monde) - fiercely ambitious
Manage episode 356412592 series 2845890
Vue de monde was founded by a fiercely ambitious Shannon Bennett in 2000. He was fresh from three-star experience in Europe with a head full of dreams. From its beginnings in a quirky terrace in Carlton, the restaurant moved first to Normanby Chambers in the city and then in 2011 to its current home on level 55 of the Rialto Towers.
We talk about ambition, tenacity, career progression, Vue highlights, succession planning and the state of the hospitality industry. Should the Champagne Socialists have their way? This is one of our favourite episodes out of the 500+ we’ve done on Dirty Linen and it’s part of our special nine-ep series celebrating a half-century of podcasts.
