Personal Quote
Give as much as you can while you can
Social Media Connected, a company I started because of my love of the restaurant industry. I saw the need for that industry to change the way it communicates with it’s customers and runs it’s day to day operations. No longer can you just have a great product and expect to prosper. You need to use all the tools available to you and have a strategy for implementation. You need to be CONNECTED with the business and the community you do business in.

Emplyee party sets stage for regional Challenge.

Posted on January 21, 2011 at 5:00am 0 Comments

The annual employee party for the Cook's Lobster House team was the stepping stone for what is now a goal to be the regional best at restaurant challenge. Two intense competitions were held for the right to be called the best. The Server obstacal course. Servers walk and run through a course carrying four martini glasses full to the top, trying to avoid spilling. The second compititon was a silverware sorting competition. Speed and acurracy were the key to success…


Be ready to get your guest into the mix

Posted on September 15, 2009 at 5:00am 0 Comments

You as hospitality people have the unique opportunity to have your guest be your greatest advertising tool. You must be ready to show off your happy guest to the world for the benefit of your establishment. Have a camera, video cam, note pad for documenting the events as they happen. With your guest permission of course. You'll find that most of them want to be made important and will want some way to remember the good time that they had at your restaurant. Have fun and let your guest have… Continue

Websites, Blogs, Facebook, Mix It Up Keep It Fun

Posted on August 24, 2009 at 4:31am 0 Comments

Your Facebook fan page doesn't seem to be adding any new fans. You blog is not receiving many hits, your website seems old even though you just built it. These are a few of the problems with social networking being just an ad for your restaurant. Yes that is the main reason you do it, to advertise about your goods and services. How do you keep those people that already know who you are and what you do coming back to see more?

Keep It Fresh And Fun!

Guest Loyalty Is Hard Work

Posted on August 13, 2009 at 4:47am 0 Comments

You have a great restaurant and the guest seem quite happy when they leave. You've taught your staff the proper way to greet, prepare and serve. Why is it that you don't see these same guest for months on end? With so many great competitors out there, why should they come back to you the next time they go out for a meal?

Start looking at your guest in a different way. They are not just the money in your cash drawer, although that is the end result that we all seek to survive. Instead make… Continue

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.
