I write this letter in recommendation of Terence Austin as a consultant. I had the pleasure of working with Terence Austin in a consultancy role for our company. Terence was brought into to our business to review our food programme in 2016/2017. I can recommend him highly and without reservation.
Throughout the course of the project, Terence was a consummate professional. Terence was able to quickly grasp what our group wanted to accomplish and had some great ideas on how to achieve our goals.
Terence has excellent knowledge and experience of the age care sector, and was able to draw on a wide variety of implementation scenarios from his background. The final report and the recommendations that he put together were very well received by the Directors, General Managers and general staff.
I strongly recommend Terence as a competent and knowledgeable consultant and wish him every success with his future endeavours. Please feel free to call me for any further information that you may need

Reference for Terence Austin
It has been my pleasure to work alongside Terence in Aged Care Facilities. Terence is an inspiration to what is possible. He cooks to the highest standard as well as having the ability to support and coach others to do so. He offers menus with multi choice and great variety and he sets a bench mark to aspire to in the aged care environment. I believe Terence truly makes a difference in providing a quality Food Service and makes a positive contribution to the quality of life of the residents in the facilities he works with.

The workshops are are a great way of getting people together to share information, and to see where the trends are heading.
The latest workshop was attended by Facility Managers, Speech and Language Therapists, Kitchen staff and Registered Nurses. With guests coming as far away as Palmerston North for an Auckland Workshop. My role is to provide live food demonstrations and explain the importance of food to the elderly. In this workshop I was showing the different meal textures (soft, mince and moist, puree) and how to produce them in moulded form to resemble real food. Emphasis is on visual appeal and taste.
