Restaurants Get Social

Posted on April 26, 2011 at 9:34am 0 Comments

So October 22nd was the last time that I blogged here at FohBoh and I know the millions of you that have read this have been dieing with anticipation as to what I have been doing. Actually my wife Kelly is really the only one that reads anything I write but it made me feel good to write that sentence. Those of you that know me know that I am a little bit of a talker (ok a lot of a bit) and not so much a writer. I can write but it takes a long time because I write the way I talk and that is…

When am I going to meet your friends?

Posted on October 22, 2010 at 9:49am 0 Comments

So you just started dating someone new. How long until you introduce them to your friends or your family. Do you do it right away or do you wait just because you are not sure? It could be a number of scenarios, you love your friends and family but you are not sure about how they will be received. Or you are not sure whether your new date would be welcome into the inner circle. A referral program is similar to dating someone new. We all know that a solid referral program pays in both…

Help End Childhood Hunger

Posted on September 15, 2010 at 11:58am 0 Comments

I was reading a blog about Share Our Strength and my 13 year old Julia is hanging over my shoulder with curiosity. I asked her, "Did you know that there are more than 17 million children, nearly 1 in every 4, that struggle with hunger? When you are home having your daily bowl of ice cream there are other children that may not even have access to a meal of any sorts." She…

Person Behind the Curtain

So I met with some clients this week and the topic was “What can we do different to attract better candidates?” Such a loaded question. So we went through the usual list:…

Social Media and Restaurants

Posted on May 26, 2010 at 2:00pm 22 Comments

This week at the NRA Show there was a lot of chatter about the future of social media and how it will be used in the restaurant world. Right now most, like myself, are just trying to find our way. Youtube is five years old and growing up fast. Facebook, twitter, and all the rest are changing by the day if not minute. There is a new tool being created constantly. So how do you figure out what, how and when? Who cares, stop over thinking this and get in on the action before it is too late.…

TED TALKS VIDEO

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.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
