Opticians from around the South West met celebrity chef Marco Pierre White at his Whitley pub.
A group of Specsavers regional managers attended a business lunch at the Pear Tree Inn, where they had champagne and canapés before the restaurateur shared business insights.
Trowbridge store director and chairman of the Specsavers Central South region Stephen Auty organised the event. He said: “We were delighted that Mr White was able to join us. It was really interesting to hear how his experience in business translates to our business model at Specsavers.
“It was useful to hear the parallels he could draw with the importance of customer service and how to get the best from your staff.”
Pierre White last month launched his latest venture, the Rudloe Arms (formerly the Rudloe Manor Hotel), near Corsham.
