This Breville and CCA initiative included Chef Chad Datu, Breville Philippines resident corporate chef who was mentored by Chef Philip Golding since 2015 and was organized by the Product & Marketing team led by Haj Flores.

A total of thirteen stations were set up for the eager attendees, who were grouped into two per station. In the morning sessions, Chef Chad showcased his expertise during the hot-kitchen workshops. The coffee-crafting lessons, meanwhile, were conducted in the afternoon.

“We would also like to emphasize the importance of product knowledge and experience in Sales especially in customer experience – as the presence of a knowledgeable sales representative is a factor that enhances the process of the consumer’s appreciation of the products,” says Cris Llamo.

“As stated in our company profile, Breville is the kitchen appliance brand that delivers innovation based on consumer insights, empowering people’s potential to do things more impressively or easily than they’d thought possible in their own kitchen,” explains Haj Flores.

“These workshops will be strengthened and even reinforced throughout the year as it is one of Breville Philippines’ core business practices. We are moving forward in campaigning for Filipinos to ‘Bring Breville Home,” Flores added.

“Bring Breville Home” is a call to action for both Breville and the aspiring consumers.

“There are two kinds of homes– the home you get and the home you find. In a lot of ways, we have already established ourselves in the former while we dream and work for the future when Breville is already a common and expected sight in more family kitchens and office pantries all over the country,” Flores concluded.
