Greetings to all Chef to Chef Conference attendees! The Conference in New Orleans is fast approaching. Registrations are running ahead of previous years, and we are expecting another sellout.
This year we are trying something a little different for the “Chef to Chef Live” breakout sessions. To kick off each 15-minute breakout discussion period, we would like to choose success stories and solutions to common problems from chef attendees and have those stories shared with the groups.
The selected chefs would each share their stories in a breakout room, followed by a Q&A exchange, before moving on to the next room to do the same with another group. We will also have one of the Conference presenters in each breakout room, to introduce the chefs telling the stories and to facilitate the discussion.
But in order to get the conversations started, we need your help. Please fill out the form below to submit a brief description of a particular success story, or a solution to a common problem, that you’ve been part of developing at your club. We will forward all of the submissions that we receive to our new Conference Advisory Board, to help us determine which ones we’d like to include in this year’s new “Chef to Chef Live” format.
Those who will present their stories to the groups will be notified well ahead of the Conference, and the simple format for presenting them will be spelled out to each chef via e-mail and a brief tour of the breakout room areas after the Conference begins (the “Chef to Chef Live” sessions will be on Monday afternoon, March 11).
These stories will be of great value to the other chef attendees, as they may have struggled with the same issue or challenge. So if you have some information to share, please submit it.
See you in NOLA!
