Biography
I am a very lucky woman who gets to work for an awesome company part time and also be a full time mom to my wonderful daughter Sophia. At People Report, I manage the two conferences we hold each year for our members as well as help support our sales and marketing team. It is a great job as I love the people I work with and believe that People Report is making a positive impact in the industry.

Prior to People Report, I worked for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation in the sales and communications department. I graduated from Johnson & Wales University in 2000 with my BA in Sales and Meeting Management. I grew up in this industry and it is a BIG passion of mine and I am so proud to be a part of it.

In my spare time I like to do the things I love most including spending time with my family, cooking, cake decorating and walking- training for the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk in Chicago this year!

Restaurant Industry Response to the Economic Downturn – Slower Growth, Less Staff, and Smaller Paychecks

Posted on March 26, 2009 at 9:57am 3 Comments

People Report recently conducted a special online survey to learn how restaurant chains are adapting to the current economic downturn, currently and in the near term. The survey, published this week was completed by hundreds of executives, representing 111 distinct chain restaurant companies from all industry segments.



We focused on those measures that are directly related to the human capital element of our businesses and classified them into three categories: 1. those that affect… Continue

Congratulations on completing the 3 Day! Not sure about 2009 San Diego for me, but would love to root for you along the trail. I plan to go to the summer CHART meeting. It's my 25th CHART anniversary.
Take care-

All the best to you and yours,

Hey Melissa,

Not sure if I will be able to attend the meeting in November or not but feel free to let Robin know that I would be a good asset to attend with her and introduce her to everyone. :-)

Posted some more picture of the little cutie pie we call Audrina. Thanks for the reminder.

I know I may be biased but I have to say she is the cutest thing I have seen in a while (outside of my wife and kids).

All is well and trust the same goes for you. Great family shot! Can't make the conference, but maybe our HR folks can. If you get to Cleveland in July for CHART, we can catch up.

So awesome to get to meet your little princess there - she is beautiful and obviously very loved. Thank you for all the dilligent work you did to pull off yet another SMASHING conference!

And here your name seemed so familiar! I was looking at the messages and scheduling with Matt Smith (met him at RLC last week) and kept seeing your name and wondering why it seemed so familiar.
Another FOHBOH miracle!
Joni did great at RLC in really driving home the point. We have a bunch of folks lined up to do something about it! So how cool is that! Let her know it was very fruitful and that our thoughts and prayers are with her in Her and Wally's loss.
Take care and stay in touch!

Hi Melissa - That's great you're doing the walk in Chicago. You GO GIRL! I just finished a stint as a consumer reviewer for breast cancer research projects through the Department of Defense. It's a great way to have an impact on the future of research leading to a cure.

TED TALKS VIDEO

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?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
