GRITT Summit 2019 was a huge success! Broken down into three different tracks, sessions covered a variety of topics including: how to be a good leader, finding what employees really want, how to find talent, developing a company culture, understanding the business and numbers, digital media trends, technology and food trends, operational best practices and so much more.
- CEO and founder Shawn Burcham explained his tried-and-true business model that’s led PFSbrands to success: GRITT. It stands for Goal Driven, Responsible, Involved, Team, and Tolerance of Failure.
- Carrie Luxem, CEO of Restaurant HR Group, unveiled concrete practices of how to become an employer of choice and also gifted each attendee a FREE 1-yr subscription to her newly-released HR platform, valued at $299.
- Champs Chicken retailers were the first to see the new Champs Chicken logo and brand purpose, announcing its support of the Super Sam Foundation to fight childhood cancer.
We can’t forget about all of the networking and fun, too! Attendees were entertained with a magician during the first evening’s reception, there were raffles, games and a photo booth, as well as evening entertainment at a private night club in the Ameristar Casino, with casino dealers teaching their tricks!
As one attendee put it: “Many times we are so caught up in day to day business we forget some real fundamental and easy things that can bring us all success. I appreciate your open business model and the welcoming approach of all your team. It is certainly something I hope to bring more of my team to as we restructure and empower leaders to better serve our customer base. Thank you once again!”
