The White Jacket Effect has been created from a passion and the need to make a change in the culture of the hospitality industry by Amber Kaba.
Amber has been in the hospitality industry for over 15 years. She is highly experienced with catering and nutrition. She has years of experience working in fine dining restaurants alongside Michelin starred chefs.
Courageously, Amber remembers how she used to drink a lot of alcohol to deal with the work pressures – “on any given night a half a case of beer was required to put me to sleep.”
A pivotal moment in her life was New Year’s Eve 2017 – She was managing a large 1600 people event overlooking the Opera House. She decided to have an after party celebration at her house and purchased plenty of alcohol for the team to consume.
However, it all started to go downhill when her colleagues were too exhausted to celebrate and chose to go home instead. Amber was disappointed, lonely and upset and chose to drown her sadness with the alcohol.
