Watch: Grow Assembly Sydney — Change with Palisa Anderson from Chat Thai

Grow Assembly ventured into Sydney for its first event outside of Melbourne. The theme of Change explored ideas from a team of hospitality legends from Neil Perry AM, Joanna Savill & Mitch Orr.

We will be featuring all of the talks each week here on The Front Desk.

Palisa Anderson is a portion of a much larger whole that is her family business. Their first business Chat Thai was established in 1989, since then they have expanded the operations to 9 eateries, a grocery store, a travel agency and a farm.

Josh Niland won over the hearts of Australian diners with his fish restaurant, Saint Peter in Paddington, Sydney.

The butchery is a re-imagination of the traditional fish monger with varieties of seafood seldom seen at a retail level.
