Attitude of Service

Posted on July 13, 2009 at 4:00am 7 Comments

Greetings from the American Culinary Federation National Convention in Orlando! I've been here the past 2 days enjoying some sun and some rain and a multitude of great chefs. Again, it makes me grateful to be associated with the hospitality industry and the great people who continue to make things happen both front and back of house.



I was prepping today, assisting Chef Dewey LoSasso of Miami's North One 10 restaurant, in getting ready for a food demonstration tomorrow. Sometimes,… Continue

Breaking News Update

Posted on June 29, 2009 at 3:00am 10 Comments

Not to get on the Michael Jackson bandwagon, but it wasn’t lost on me last week as news broke of his cardiac arrest and death, that traditional, mainstream media sources were my last resort for breaking news.



Not that this should surprise me, but it’s been somewhat stealth. I’ve known for months that my media consumption behaviors and those of my culinary friends were rapidly changing. It was just never quite as apparent as it was last week as I worked to confirm what could have been… Continue

Reaching Patrons with Twitter

Posted on June 15, 2009 at 6:15am 5 Comments

With the plethora of more interactive/social options available for communicating, it can seem daunting to find those most relevant to your business. As I've discussed in the past, it's key to look at your overall marketing objectives to determine which options work best for you. Social/Emerging media can help meet a variety of your communication needs by establishing you as a trusted voice to patrons and communicating reasons for them to visit. But it goes way beyond that, providing ways for… Continue

Harnessing the Power of Word-Of-Mouth

Posted on June 1, 2009 at 7:44am 5 Comments

Word-of-mouth is coming on stronger than ever, thanks to the influence of social/emerging media. In fact, to the world outside foodservice, one would almost think it’s a new or novel idea. However, those of you marketing your restaurants to patrons have always known the power of WOM. At Noble, we call it WOMP (TM) or word-of-mouth power, recognizing that this oldest of marketing tactics is now turbo-charged.



We intimately know the damage just one disgruntled customer can do. But, by… Continue

A View From NRA

Posted on May 18, 2009 at 8:07am 5 Comments

Greetings from the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago! How cool that I get to blog from the show to my FOHBOH friends, many of whom, I know, are attending. In fact, FOHBOH is hosting its second annual gathering at the Regal Beagle later tonight and I'm looking forward to meeting some members of the community offline.



At the show this year, much talk has centered on social media, just like is happening practically everywhere else. I think we'd all agree that no one has… Continue

I thought your post took it even further - a restaurateur who's actually putting this into practice. Do you find Facebook fan pages or promotions to be helpful?

And re: Tony - I take just about every chance I get to work with the entertainers in Branson - their music, etc., may not be everyone's cup of tea, but they really pull the community together around helping others.

Yeah, can you believe Tony! He is the nicest fellow, really he is. He works so hard for MDA and when we get on the set, it is so worth the effort to raise the money for them when you see how commited people like him are.
Thanks for the comments friend! I was a little nervous about my launch cause you had just written your piece, LOL
Good thing Twitter is such a big topic! Between you me and every writer on here we could could start our own How To site! Hmmmm....!
Best!

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
