Founder & Managing Director
Gino set up Good2know Hospitality in 2017 during a time when the cocktail market was heading towards its popularity peak. Starting as a dish washer to then training as a cocktail bartender within some of Bournemouth’s most elite venues he moved onto offering his services to small garden gatherings and hosting cocktail classes, before leaving for management positions across the UK and Spain within a number of established venues, restaurants and nightclubs. On return from a successful number of seasons in Spain he quickly re-built and established Good2know as the most prominent pop-up bar and staff agency for the most discerning cliental and leading industry suppliers within Dorset and Hampshire. Constantly brainstorming to develop the business model, level of service and product offerings he has set-up collaborations with many other event organisers and caterers, where you are likely to see Good2know hospitality on show across the South. A specialist in large scale event recruitment, training, and of course the art of mixology, he now oversees the day to day operations of over 100+ hospitality staff and smaller pocket teams across the UK, with a passion on passing his knowledge to the next generation and to take this company National with our newly accredited training programmes, 2023 will be a very busy year indeed!
