Ethan Mantle's Componere Fine Catering has catered several of the west coast's premier large events, including Apple's World Wide Developers Conference for 5,800 and the Quail Motorsports luxury automobile event for 5,500.
He'll cover how to:
• successfully provide a world-class culinary program regardless of guest count
• win competitive large event bids through differentiation instead of price
• structure project and budget management
• recruit large teams in a challenging labor environment and ensure they maintain your standards
He'll also explain why Steve Job's quote, "a small team of A+ players can run circles around a giant team of B and C players," applies to events, and large events in particular.
As Covid recedes and remote teams need to be brought together, large events will likely be back in a big way. Are you ready?
