Anthony Lambatos, CEO, Footers Catering & Events
Cater staff hours are long and the demands are brutal. As soon as the excitement wears off, the job gets real. To your staff, it seems that the next company is always offering a little bit more money with slightly shorter hours. Most catering business owners lose an employee every few months. How do you attract and keep a great catering staff?
Margaret Brower, CEO & Founder, Rainmaker Sales & Marketing Group
Dear Catering Salespeople, You are fierce. You are the extreme athletes of the wedding business. You live in a world with no guarantees, too much competition, and no shortage of rejection. Your job is tough. That’s why this presentation is dedicated to you.
Roy Porter, Activities Director, Engage Works
