Heavy Chef

A Platform For People That Do

Heavy Chef is a community-driven organisation. Founded in 2005 by Fred Roed (pictured), it was inspired by the expression never trust a skinny chef and has evolved into "the platform for people that do".

We celebrate the people who currently are making a dent in our universe. Those special people that walk the talk, get their hands dirty and teach through action. These are the people we want to learn from and collaborate with. Our monthly events focus on leadership, technology and creativity, bringing together a community of like-minded individuals who want to make things happen.
