Meet the Cheeky Team
With an impressive combination of business, cooking, training, public speaking and presentation skills, Director Leona Watson and her team of Chefs and Event Managers, are ready to take your next event or conference to another level.
We’re not interested in doing same-old cooking classes or even standard food presentations…we’re 100% committed to making everything we do a fun and memorable, interactive EVENT! Why? Because we love it! And we know it works for our clients.
Your Cheeky Director – Leona Watson
Before Leona started Cheeky Food Group, she was a successful marketing consultant for both large and small corporations, including Microsoft in the UK, Optus, CBA, QANTAS, Virgin Mobile and MBF. She also worked in event management organising Australia Day activities and the massive Fosters Great Aussie Picnic in Brisbane for 60,000 and 100,000 people respectively. Yes big parties!
But her love of cooking, entertaining and throwing great parties sent her to the Whitsundays to work on a yacht as a cook and tour guide, then to complete Le Cordon Bleu training. Cheeky is the fulfilment of a long held dream….”to combine my corporate background and business skills, with my love of entertaining and bringing people together. Come to my place and you’re likely to end up in the kitchen …even if it’s pouring the cook a vino! Cheeky makes me smile every day, especially when I see our clients so happy with what we create”.
As Leona says, “I have a very simple philosophy in life…if it’s not fun, I’m not interested! But it can’t be frivolous either. So by making Cheeky fun, professional and successful, I do the same for my clients. My objective is to create big smiles all round and to bring people together, which is what being “Cheeky” is all about. And yes I love a great party!”
“When I worked in large corporations, I had to arrange team and client events, so I know how stressful it is to find something that suits everyone, and to please the people who’ve ‘done it all’. I can honestly say that Cheeky offers the best group event I’ve been to…and I’ve been to plenty! I personally 100% guarantee it”.
