"I have known Maureen De Groot for over 30 years from the days when she took over “Sydney’s Top Ten” and transformed it into a formidable publication. From there, Maureen started Best Restaurants Gift Vouchers and Cards - which have become an invaluable asset to the restaurant industry. She has the enthusiasm of someone who has just started, the knowledge and wisdom of a seasoned campaigner and integrity beyond question. Our industry is better because of people like Maureen de Groot."
