Way back in 1990 when denim on denim was still considered cool, Bruce and his wife Chyka had a big idea - to create a catering and events company that would push the boundaries in delivering unimaginable, unforgettable experiences. They enjoyed the happiness that food and service brought out in people and saw a market gap where they could perform exceptionally well. And so, The Big Group was born.
Now, over 25 years later, we have more than 1,000 employees and have been host to over 12,500 unbelievable parties. Bruce and Chyka lead a team of unrestricted party and events enthusiasts. We continue to exceed boundaries, create industry change - and the parties, well they just keep getting better and bolder.
Chyka has a reputation for her creative approach; she has a keen eye for style and flair. Her ideas and talent have featured in numerous design, fashion and interior magazines over the years. Chyka has a passion for spreading happiness through food experiences and beautiful settings; her ever-changing approach is contemporary and luxe.
Bruce’s life passion is entertaining and looking after people. The consummate host, and an incredible communicator, mentor and motivator, Bruce has an exceptional knowledge of the hospitality industry; corporate and private, local and international, he thrives on a challenge to share his understanding. As the party date draws near Bruce’s energy steps up into overdrive and the craziness and folly begin. Look out the good times are about to roll out.
Kate steers The Big Group team as General Manager. She has a strong operational history. You’ll notice her at events; she’s the impeccably dressed one striding across the dance floor with an uncanny ability to coherently speak through 2 phones and a headset all at the same time. Kate’s rapport with staff and clients is immeasurable; she’s developed long- lasting friendships with clients and colleagues who all have a deep respect for her and the way that she operates.
