Bhavesh Kumar C. Patel
NSIA Diploma in Hospitality Management - Level 5
Bhavesh started an NSIA Diploma in Hospitality Management (Level 5) in April 2015 and was selected to compete in the NZ Chefs National Salon in 2016.
Bhavesh competed in the Classic Cocktail Training category where he won a Gold medal and third place overall.
“It was an awesome training experience because my trainer treated me like a friend not a student; there was a high level respect throughout the training. He supported me in every step of the training and was extremely motivating even if I made a mistake.
On the day of the competition, I was so nervous, but Paul continued to encourage me and remind me that I could do it! Thank you very much to my NSIA team and a special thank you to Paul Hill, I couldn’t have done this without you.”

“It was great to see Bhavesh become a champion, through his endeavour to push himself in attendance, detail and teamwork.
Bhavesh is a caring person who showed great team work, and an ability to focus on that anything is possible. This willingness to listen and adapt will be a large benefit for his hospitality future.”
