It does not get much better than this! Last week I got asked to meet a legend in Harrogate for a “lunchtime audience”.
Elena Salvoni is a lady over 90 years old and I can tell you, if I am in any way as sharp as her at that age, I will be very happy!
She spoke about the hospitality industry with such passion, as if it was a loved one – I guess, for many of us, it really is.
Sometimes people whisk into your life for a few moments and light up a room, then whisk away again. She had that. We all gave our undivided attention listening to war time stories of her walking down to the Underground and getting customers out of the restaurant, as The Blitz continued overhead.
