Well, as you can see I am a Corporate Trainer for Wolfgang Puck Express Brand. I really enjoy working with this company and have had five great years traveling the US, meeting new people, learning all the while.

I joined this network to expand my skills, meet new people and well as in this industry the more you know the more valuable you become. So I would love to hear from anyone with opinions, ideas and even time tested techniques for teaching people in the restaurant… Continue

Dear Robert,
Good afternoon. I am sorry to hear you suffered a personal loss recently. My condolences go out to you and your wife! I hope things are looking brighter for you!
I am reaching out to you for two reasons. I am a recruiter for the hospitality and retail industry. I am a member of FohBoh but I am not a professional trainer. I was hoping to network with the trainer group on this system regarding an opening I have available but the group description mentions it is for professional trainers only.
I am currently conducting a search for a Leadership Training Specialist in Los Angeles, CA. I am looking for someone coming out of the restaurant, grocery or retail industry. This person will be accountable for facilitation, directing structured learning experiences, coaching individuals, leading and managing group discussions and also giving insight to improvements of the training materials; tools, systems, and processes. It reports to a DIrector of Training. I have a salary of 80 to 90K base plus 15% bonus and a variety of other perks and benefits. My client would prefer to find a local candidate so they do not incur a relocation expense.
Can you help me facilitate getting this information to the trainer group through FohBoh and secondly would you have any idea's or recommendations you could share with me regarding this opening? I would greatly appreciate your help!
Thank you for your time. If I can ever be of service to you please let me know. I would welcome hearing from you.

Welcome to the FohBoh Network! I’m Donald Burns, CDMP & owner of chefTrac™.
There are a lot of resources here if you apply them…..some of the groups I like are Leading Generation Y, Restaurant Marketing, Ask The Experts……

I joined FohBoh to network with culinary professionals (like you) that are looking for more……from their team, themselves and their career. I thought you would be interested in the result and value based services that my company chefTrac™ offers.

My 27 years experience I have within the culinary industry lead me to create a set of tools for the modern culinary professional. They are designed to increase their success and your operations bottom line. Our programs provide results that are 100% guaranteed. Here are just a few of the benefits of incorporating our programs into your corporate culture.
• Reduce turnover and replacement costs
• Accurate job matching (we have a 96% accuracy rate!)
• Capitalize on the natural strengths of your people
• Reduce interpersonal conflicts
• Increase productivity
• Creation of team action plans that achieve goals
• Form high performance teams quickly
• Enhance your current succession plan for growth
“A unanimous commitment to self improvement, through the understanding of our natural strengths through statistically based programs that improve relations within and those we interact with.” – ChefTrac Mission Statement
chefTrac™ has centered it’s programs that support this mission. We create an immediate bond with those very unique individuals called chefs. They have their own language and sub-culture that can be difficult to communicate with. That is were I have the advantage, I am a chef working with chefs. I understand the real world frustrations and challenge that chefs and their teams face.
I have created a mini presentation that is just a brief overview of the programs offered.
If you have questions or would like to receive a package that contains more information on the programs mentioned in the presentation, just let me know.

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.
