Learn. Do. Share.

Our name comes from the saying never trust a skinny chef*. Heavy Chef celebrates people who walk the talk, who practice what they preach, who eat their own food. We create events, tours and workshops featuring Heavy Chefs, then share the content with our community of around 20,000+ entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and graduates. We believe that, in a world of talkers, it's the doers that are going to change it. Hungry?
