Kelly Roecker brings over 20 years of experience to the hospitality and restaurant industry. She has served this industry in many roles, including as elected Board President of the National Association of Catering & Events, Business Development, General Manager, Director of Catering and Director of Corporate Training & Development.

Introduction of Services:

Your employees are your greatest investment. In the hospitality and restaurant industry, employees are often client-facing, expected to wine and dine their clients. The problem is this: employees don’t always understand this responsibility and lack the interpersonal skills to make it happen.

Train 2 Gain is a suite of development courses created for educating employees on who they are, what they have to offer and how to show up every day with authenticity and courage. Employees who participate gain valuable insight into the importance of emotional intelligence, expected corporate behavior and social norms.

Session Details:

Clarity + Confidence = Connection

No punishment anyone lays on you could possibly be worse than the punishment you lay on yourself by conspiring in your own diminishment.   —Parker Palmer

Life is messy, confusing and filled with messaging that we aren’t enough.  Over time, our sense of self becomes fuzzy and diluted.  We lose sight of who we are and where we are going.  When these factors unite and conspire, our confidence takes a beating.  Join us in on journey as we explore:

  • how to get back to “me” by clearly defining who we are through brand exploration
  • how to show up confidently and authentically yourself
  • how to develop lasting deep and sustainable connections with others
