Course Instructors

Alison Anne worked her way from Hostess/Busser at a small family-owned restaurant in her hometown to AGM & Events Director of one of Washington, DC's largest sports bar over her 18 year career, in addition to being credentialed with the International Coaching Federation as a Professional Certified Coach. When she noticed the high levels of burnout, dissatisfaction, and turnover plaguing the industry, she discovered she had a knack for drilling down into the heart of what makes restaurants - and restaurant people - tick. Now, her love for the industry has her focusing on employee support and well-being, from the GM to the dishwasher, and working with her clients to connect their vision and growth initiatives to the needs of their staff, while making sure that they are equipped with the systems to do something about it.

Darren S. Denington, CFBE has an extensive background in the restaurant industry, and has served as an Owner, Executive Chef, Food and Beverage Director, District Manger, and General Manager. For the past 23 years, Darren has owned and operated a secret shopping, restaurant coaching, and hospitality team training company called Service with Style. He has focused on guest experience, employee training, team building, and he works closely with operators, helping them to implement the systems needed to improve their establishments. 

Together, Darren and Alison represent the restaurant experience at every level. They are excited to share this innovative new course with restaurant managers everywhere and are confident that they can deliver tangible results for your business by the end of this program.

Course Goals & Accountability!

We're committed to you knowing your managers are making progress in this course so that you'll see the difference in how they show up at work! We understand the importance of having tangible benchmarks to measure your growth. Our unique system of periodic assessments allows our instructors and you to determine where your management team is proficient and where they may have room for growth.

Registration Questionnaire

This survey determines what your management team's strengths are and where they have gaps in their knowledge and skills. This will help our coaches tailor the curriculum and the individual coaching sessions to the needs of your restaurant.

Mid-Term Assessment

Instructors can see how much the managers have absorbed, where there are gaps, what skills they have mastered, and where they need more support so that these skills are being applied in the daily operations of your business.

Final Check-in

A final check-in that allows you to see the progress that your managers have made from the start of the class to the conclusion of it. It will help Owners understand the progress that they have made!
