World-renown speaker Bob Brown to deliver EXPO 2018 Keynote Address:
Turn your staff into sales superstars!
His passion, humor and high-quality content presentations have inspired owners, executives, managers and front-line employees in over 20 countries over a 20-year span. He’s sold hundreds of thousands of copies of his books “The Little Brown Book of Restaurant Success” and “The Big Brown Book of Managers’ Success,” while speaking at a countless number of national conventions and private business conferences. We’re thrilled to announce that at EXPO 2018, Number One-rated speaker Bob Brown will be delivering a special Keynote Address titled “Turn Your Staff Into Sales Superstars.”
“Bob Brown is a must see for this year’s Expo,” says industry veteran Dean Reardon, Vice President of Operations for Rick’s Cabaret. “His knowledge and techniques on increasing sales for your venue are outstanding. Bob’s interaction with the audience and clear message is one of the best I have ever seen during my 28 years in our industry.”
Just as the EXPO’s theme revolves around creating, promoting and executing a successful party or special event at your club, Brown’s Keynote Address will provide proven techniques that will help your bartenders, waitresses, servers and floor personnel be at their very best the night of that special event, and every night.
“Don’t leave thousands of dollars on the table!” says Brown. “Move your servers and bartenders to ‘star status’ by helping them break the ‘yes/no habit.’ Give ‘guided tours’ of your menus, and use the ‘by the way’ technique to upsell without being pushy.”
It’s hard to imagine a more impressive list of clients than the one Brown boasts. His strategies, tools and techniques have been incorporated into the cultures of industry leaders Marriott, Disney, Waldorf Astoria, Hilton, Jumeriah, Nordstrom, Ritz Carlton, Viceroy, Morton’s of Chicago, Olive Garden and Red Lobster.
“Bob’s techniques, tactics, and tips will help both your staff and your venue boost sales and guest satisfaction,” Reardon says, noting that he attended Brown’s presentation at the Nightclub & Bar convention in March. “His breakdown and analysis of different management styles is stellar. To motivate new employees and veterans alike, he gives a clear how-to approach. And, he provides practical examples of how to coach both underperformers and top players to become sales superstars.”
Whether a club is experiencing a packed house due to a party or special event, or simply having a great Saturday night, it’s every club owner’s desire to have their sales staff selling more—and selling it more quickly. Brown’s presentation is designed to teach owners and staff how to enhance the guest experience and increase sales at the same time with this fast moving, interactive Keynote with proven takeaways.
“Bob has consulted for the top hospitality companies, and his credentials speak for themselves,” Reardon notes. “Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to boost sales and customer loyalty. If you plan to bring staff and managers to EXPO, this is the speaker you won’t want to miss.”
