MWLP Business of the Month – August 2011

Aug 1, 2011    

Outstanding Business of the Month:  Macquarie Links International Golf Club

Our winner this month boasts a championship golf course, gracious and attentive service, fine food and excellent business and social events, including weddings and theme nights. Established in 2001, with some 60 staff, Macquarie Links International Golf Club is proud to be associated with the MWLP program.

Ved Prasad, Executive Chef/Food and Beverage Manager oversees the Club’s operations.  Since 2003 he has been offering Year 11 and 12 students, who are studying Hospitality as part of their HSC, real hands on learning opportunities.

Ved is passionate about Macarthur’s youth and is keen to ‘show them the ropes’.  “Students arrive not knowing what to expect and seeing them leave at the end of the week with a smile on their faces is very satisfying”, says Ved.  His advice to the students is to “look for your spark – don’t just find a job, find a career you’re passionate about”.
