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

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

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer 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.
