Salespeople masquerading as financial advisers like to use pressure sales and fear to sell insurance. the way we work is completely different” says Andy Darroch from Advise Me…

Start flexing your littlest finger; QT Sydney has created a high tea for modern Marie Antoinettes, partnering with Adriano Zumbo, the master pâtissier behind the infamous Croquembouche.  Much like everything Zumbo touches, and as QT breathes, the launch of QTea upends the traditional notion of high tea, adding a dash of quirk for luxury loungers looking for a sweet sanctuary in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. The menu is a suitably extravagant affair featuring a mix of sweet and savoury dishes, including a nostalgic roster of Zumbo’s most famous sensations paired with a line-up of never-before-tasted delicacies such as Sconez,…
