Conference attendees are welcome to visit the campus and see international education in action,” says Jenny Jenkins, General Manager Le Cordon Bleu New Zealand.

“New Zealand’s largest Hospitality School welcomes attendees of the International Education Conference to view our stunning campus which accommodates 540 students at any one time. Patisserie classes with our exceptional lecturers including internationally renowned ex - Sky City Chef Robert Bok and Paul Gibbs from London’s Nadell Patisserie are running all day today.
