Tasting: People rule the world. How to influence those people?
The bar industry is a complex multi-layered system with many different nuances & rules but it has one major flaw. No matter how modern the processes become, no matter how much the world progresses, in the end our industry runs on people.
This seminar explores the people who work behind the bar & how they climb up the mountain of success in the bar industry.
Two bars in Ukraine were chosen in secret by the speaker & we have developed a 3 year “global domination” plan to help those bars conquer the global bar industry. Through the people around the world that work in it!
