WHY OFF THE HOTPLATE?
"I had 10 successful restaurants as owner/chef and 25 years in blasting hot kitchens. Burn out became a boomerang and I fell out of love with cooking, and the industry.
Then I started seeing the suicide rate, the burn out rate, the collateral damage of high pressure on families and society as a whole and decided we needed a solution. Mental health and emotional intelligence need more than just talk lines or questions with no answers. People need real solutions - teaching people those emotional management skills that are tragically missing in everyone's education.
Off the Hotplate was born, and I was reborn with a drive to bring this to an industry and people who deserve better. And working in other industries since, I saw they could all benefit from this. After all, it's about people. Simple." ~ Christine Matheson Green - for more on Christine on Linked In click here:
