CANADIAN GAMING SUMMIT – June 2016
What an experience! It was great having a chance to be back for the 2nd year in a row at the Canadian Gaming Summit, Food & Beverage Experience and share with our Canadian friends some of my knowledge and experience from the industry. Delivering the Keynote to attendees was a pleasure and I made sure it was more of an interactive experience, rather than just ‘talking at’ those who were joining us. We were able to have a very lively discussion on all aspects of Food & Beverage, while looking at where our industry had come from, where it was currently at and where it is going.
I really enjoyed the chance to share my perspectives from working in the United States and around the world with the Canadians in attendance; so many parallels in our business with the overall awareness that it is all about Hospitality. In an ever-changing world that is truly driven by technology, we took time to stop and discuss that it really is the importance of human interaction that is the differentiating factor in our Food & Beverage operations.
The greatest thing was that our discussions continued through the entire conference, well after the keynote was finished. All of the attendees and speakers were able to interact and speak further toward many aspects of our industry and the future ahead. I was even more honored and flattered when the Director of the show, in his closing commentary to the group, invited me back to be a part of next year’s conference! Very special and I look forward to returning and participating!
