About Blyde Welcome

Celia SmithMy love of hospitality started when I was still at school and got a part-time job working for Jim and Irene Williamson at ‘Kveldsro’. Summer holidays were spent back in the hotel honing my skills and then after university, I completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Catering and Accommodation Management. The next ten years were spent working throughout the UK, mainly in boutique and luxury hotels. This has led to me being passionate about providing great customer experiences and the importance of training. I am fully qualified to deliver such training and would like to help you and your staff become ambassadors for Shetland’s hospitality and tourism industry.

Blyde Welcome is unique to Shetland and you can count on me to support you in all your food and drink, tourism and customer service training. I can also create a bespoke package to suit you and your business. Take a look at my Courses page to find out more about what I can offer you.
