Local Chef becomes Runner up in the Worlds first Online Video Competition.
When it comes to dedication nothing can keep this Chef down. From rising to be the Maine Chapter President of an international chef association, Brooke Grondin is a local chef from Buxton, Maine USA and her rise to international note has been inspiring.
Brooke just recently was awarded 2nd place in the International Chefs Bench Competition for 2020 by the World Association of Master Chefs (WAMC), narrowly missing out on the top spot by less than 4 votes.
But what makes this Chef’s story different from many others. Well the journey for starters. When many would have given up, Brooke has fought through and made a name for herself, keeping her eye on the goal of becoming recognized for her skills and abilities.
Her journey of over 25 years has been a struggle, just like many others in the industry but Brooke has always had a deep down desire to succeed and has fought through the challenges of life. She worked hard to fight for what she was entitled to and proved all those who doubted in her that she was worth more that they thought.
WAMC Global President Gaven Ferguson came across Brooke early this year and from the moment he spoke with her he knew there was a passion there that WAMC wanted for the USA. "Her total drive and confidence was apparent, even though I felt like she was not aware of it, so I took a chance on here and offered to have her head up the Maine Chapter. I had not felt so strongly about a chapter president before and I was confident that her drive would help spur on her determination for success." He was right.
Brooke has since participated in numerous competitions and now is know throughout the entire association as a Global Chefs Bench Winner.
She is writing a book, started her own business and has begun to build the chapter. This is a story worth talking about.
WAMC is now working with Brooke to drive the growth of the association in the United States and with her help, know that WAMC can support and grow the industry there.

Standard Bank don't know if they can send me my email notifications, or not
I go for a basic update to my Standard Bank profile to set my business preferences to email for i) OTP, and ii) notifications. I get an SMS from the bank 2 days ago at 13:35 for option ii).
I dial their call center to go ahead with my updates. The bank's agent tells me it can't be done. Only i) OTP via email. Not notifications. This tells me the bank is confused. They don't know if they can send me my email notifications, or not.
There's a discrepancy
Between the SMS they send me
And their call center
So I go for the OTP option only. They can't even get that right. My call to Standard Bank I record is dropped before my instruction is confirmed done from the other end.
I call back. 5 times to follow up. All further calls from my number are cancelled. I call again. This time to another number. I get through. My call is answered after ~11 minutes. It's then dropped again.
You banks must do
What I tell you to do
Or your banking licenses
Will be suspended
