Since closing Mistress Augustine’s Restaurant in 1992 Oliver has had multiple consultancies that have included working for receivers Ernst & Young at the Astor Hotel and opening two international hotels in Adelaide South Australia, the Radisson Adelaide (now the Sebel) and The Ramada Plaza Pier (now The Oaks Glenelg).


In addition she has opened a broad range of smaller operations and mentored scores of industry professionals in the past 25 years. Conflict resolution, marketing advice and strategies, innovation and social media (including social media etiquette) are just some of the many areas she has expertise in. She is at home in the kitchen training staff as she is sitting down with management offering clear and constructive options for problem solving or advice for the next stage of their business development.


In the kitchen, Oliver is extremely hands-on and has a very direct approach, but, the fact that she has established long, and lasting relationships with all of her past clients and life-long relationships with many of the culinary professionals she has mentored says it all.


The extent of Oliver’s work is not limited to Adelaide and she has also worked extensively in mainland China including Shanghai and Chengdu and done high level promotions in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.


Retired, Oliver is still open to consultancies but no longer works in a hands on capacity.
