Restaurant leadership conference 2017 was centered around returns on relationships, which we all know in the restaurant industry is pivotal. Speakers included Susan Adzick vice President of McLane food service, Brian Little distinguished scholar, Greg Creed CEO of Yum! Brands, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Pepsi Co. CEO Indra Nooyi and many, many more!
All the speakers focused on discussing relationships and how they affect every facet of our lives. Relationships are how we connect with other human beings, how we make lifelong friends, and how we teach future generations to interact with their peers. The speakers this year gave great insight and offered different perspective on interactions small and large and how they mold people.
Here at Small Box Energy one of our most coveted core values is “Bring out the Best in People”. There is no better way to describe this than the energy that surrounded everyone at RLC this year. Post the personality test given by Brian Little, you could hear people chatting and laughing about how they scored in comparison to some of the coworkers and even a topic for discussion at the exhibitor booths. The halls seemed to come alive with people embracing their differences, overcoming their introverted-ness and establishing relationships that would last a lifetime.
Attending trade-shows has always been a huge priority for Small Box Energy as we get to build new relationships, reconnect with old acquaintances and meet with current clients. We got into this business for the return on relationships all while making the industry more sustainable.
