"The Chefs’ Forum was tasked with helping Adande create and deliver awareness through regional events that would educate the chefs to the benefits and applications of the Adande technology, as well as promoting Adande via its digital platform. The strategy developed met our objectives, with a strong communication of what chefs wanted and was based upon one to one engagement within their forums. Without Catherine and her team Adande would not have benefited in effected forums to showcase the best refrigerated drawers in the world. The Chefs’ forums have helped us reach the chef audience efficiently and delivered a significant level of leads that has generated good exposure for Adande and given chefs what they really want in a kitchen, great refrigerated products. That is why we simply keep using The Chefs’ Forum!"
