An online workshop that explores how to design food gatherings that spark conversation, inspire, and connect people.
Event buffets, conference refreshments, and office lunches are often dull, underwhelming moments that fail to connect people or end an event on a high note as they should. Sometimes there is little care for the food. Other times, the conversation doesn’t take off. A meal— whether with colleagues, business prospects, fellow conference attendees, friends, or family— is only ever as good as the conversation we have with one another. Too often we fall on the common standard: “What do you do?” or stick to people we know. What can the organizer do to elevate the quality of the experience? What does it take to host? Is it possible to “design” a food experience, and how to make it memorable?
In this online workshop, I’ll share a fresh approach to help you rethink and reframe your food event from the perspective of conversation, hospitality, and community. I’ll provide the best practices and techniques I’ve learned to design and host food gatherings and build an excited and loyal community around your event, business, and brand. If you’re an event manager, conference organizer and someone who host events over food, you should join!
What you’ll learn
- Why the planning shouldn’t start from the food but from why you meet
- How to design food experiences in the age of social networks
- The role of the host
- 20 min Q&A for those would like to stay on the call
