16 October 2015: CURTAIN UP!
PASTRY CONCEPT® is Leonardo Di Carlo’s exciting business adventure. After almost 30 years’ experience in the pastry trade, 23 of which spent travelling the world as a lecturer and expert in international schools and companies, Leonardo Di Carlo is setting up his own training centre where he will continue his search for knowledge and share his skills with those who aspire to learning and acquiring the tools with which to improve their performance and boost their business.
Directing and working behind the scenes is Michela Balliana, the person who is helping in the management of Leonardo’s profession and, most importantly, Leonardo’s life partner. She takes care of administration, sales and marketing.
The venue is a new construction in Conegliano, in North-Eastern Italy. It is close to the town centre but far from traffic and noise. It has been designed by professional architects according to Leonardo and Michela’s priorities, with a small reception room, a simple but efficient office and a lecture room provided with the best technology the market offers. The lecture room is suitable for courses with a limited number of working professionals, but is versatile enough to comfortably seat the entire audience.
Pastry Concept® courses are always held for a limited number of participants; according to the subject and type of course the places available go from 6 to 12 to ensure that all attendees gain valuable experience and benefit from close contact with the instructor.
