Just back from the CHART (Council of Hotel and Restaurant Trainers) shindig in Las Vegas, what a great group! I highly encourage anyone involved in HR/training/ops to join this stellar organization and attend their conferences. You will meet serious professionals who are enthusiastic, caring, and ever-learning.
The learning activities were full of valuable content and the peer relationship building opportunities are unmatched. The guest speakers were phenomenal, including Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of the National Restaurant Association; Kat Cole, president of Cinnabon; Amanda Hite, founder, CEO and change agent of Talent Revolution, Inc.; Kathleen Wood, founder; Kathleen Wood Partners, LLC, and many more.
I would like to thank Mike “Famous” Amos, Jennifer Michaud, Tara Davey, Lisa Marovec, Jennifer Johnston and all of the other great CHART folks for allowing me to present at CHART’s 82nd Hospitality Training Conference. Next time, don’t miss it!
