Jeremy King will tell R200 delegates why he is pushing for new workplace practices
Renowned restaurateur Jeremy King has been announced as guest speaker at the upcoming R200 summer event to be held on 22 July the new Big Easy in London’s Covent Garden.

King, whose company Corbin & King operates London restaurants The Wolseley, The Delaunay, Brasserie Zédel and Colbert, will explain why he is calling for the industry to adopt new working practices and elaborate on those he has put in place at his own restaurants. A Q&A session will give delegates the opportunity to ask him about his experiences as a restaurateur over the past 30 years as well as his company’s future plans.

King and business partner Chris Corbin have been involved with some of London’s most iconic restaurants, including Le Caprice, The Ivy and J. Sheekey, and their company just recently launched Viennese restaurant Fischer’s in Marylebone.

Event line-up
Also speaking at the event will be Simon Stenning, foodservice strategy director at Allegra Foodservice, who will be drawing from the latest Allegra UK Restaurant Market Report and discussing what he describes as ‘a new era of premiumised informality driven by food pleasure seekers’.

Jamie Barber, the serial restaurant entrepreneur and co-founder of Brazilian chain Cabana, will also be there to discuss the challenges of bringing niche cuisines to the masses.
The morning discussions will be followed by a barbecue lunch at Big Easy.
