Testimonials for Chyka Keebaugh

Chyka was engaging, unique and full of inspiring, actionable advices for GEMs. Event attendees couldn’t get enough of her, and basically mobbed her when she came in! It was clever the way she talked about her own story but kept weaving in relevant pieces of advice for the GEMs to enhance their guests experiences.

Her ideas and talent have featured in numerous design, fashion and interior magazines over the years. She was a regular guest on Good Morning Australia (Network TEN) for several years.

 

Before meeting her husband, Bruce and establishing The Big Group, Chyka started her career as a cadet with the iconic Australia Hotel. Here she learnt all aspects of the hospitality industry. With a burning desire to travel and see the world Chyka embarked on a journey which saw her live in London and study at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, which is known as being a worldwide leader in gastronomy, hospitality and management.
