Entries sought for 2011 Savoy Gastronomes Olive Barnett Award

Entries are now being sought for the 2011 Savoy Gastronomes Olive Barnett Award, run by Springboard, which recognises high achievers aged 29 or younger in customer facing roles in hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism.

The award was created by the Savoy Gastronomes in recognition of Olive Barnett who pioneered excellence at the Savoy hotel.

Last year's winner, Cameron House's Amy Dignon, urged others to enter. "I am completely overwhelmed and so proud of what I have achieved.

"I will continue to strive for excellence and recommend that if you are passionate about your customer-facing role and love the industry, you should certainly enter."

Entrants are requested to submit a two-minute video of themselves speaking about why they have chosen a career in the hospitality industry and why they feel they should be considered to receive the Olive Barnett Award.

From these entries, a shortlist of 30 entrants will be selected and invited to submit a 750-word report, from which a final shortlist of eight finalists will be invited to attend the judging weekend in May at the newly refurbished Savoy Hotel.

For more details and to enter for the award, visit the website. Deadline for entires is 28 February 2011.
