Welcome Conference: Recap

On Monday, the 4th annual Welcome Conference was held at the Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.  The attendance was considerably larger this year than last in its new home, and the speakers stirred the crowd.

The thesis of this year’s conference was “Conflict and Change.”  And while restaurants have historically been petri dishes for both of these forces, the speakers primarily focused on personal examples.  Time, love, loss, and coping were at the root of the conflict and change discussed.

Melanie Whelan, CEO of SoulCycle, kicked off the series with a personal introspection on time, and how her greatest conflict and source for change is managing her time.  Gary Noesner, retired chief of the FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit, good the crowd laughing with harrowing work stories and what has worked for him in settling conflicts–active listening.  And Richard Melman, founder of Lettuce Entertain You bestowed “Some Things I’ve Learned” as he put it.

The talks are inspiring and worth a watch! Videos of all of the speakers will be available shortly here.
