Making The World A Better Place: Creating Advocates, Not Adversaries

Making The World A Better Place: Creating Advocates, Not Adversaries

November 18, 2021

Have you ever thought about how we could make the world a better place? Since the events industry is all about bringing people together and nurturing communities, that's kind of what event professionals indirectly try to do. At least that's the case that the Brew Crew will try to make today. For this occasion, Will and Nick are joined by a very special guest: Brandt Krueger, Will's co-host on the Event Tech Podcast. What is this, a crossover episode? Well, kind of, except the trio doesn't talk that much about event tech.

Instead, they take a closer look at the world we live in and philosophize away. It's not a conversation about the events industry per se; it's a sociological and psychological assessment of our society at large. A society that's being torn apart by divisive rhetoric, hate speech, and disrespect. Will, Nick, and Brandt (or should we say, Aristotle, Socrates, and Plato) explore ways of transcending these issues and the role of the events industry in this honorable endeavor. So we highly encourage you to press play. After all, this concerns everyone on this planet!

The Great Resignation: Labor Shortages In Hospitality & Events

The Great Resignation: Labor Shortages In Hospitality & Events

November 4, 2021

As the pandemic hit in early 2020, people all over the world were forced to slow down for a while. For some, it was the first time in forever that they got to stop and re-evaluate their lives. And it turns out that many of them had realized just how burnt out, overworked, and undervalued they felt. More importantly, a lot of them work in hospitality and events. Enter the Great Resignation of 2021! Labor shortages in hospitality are at their peak.

 

The most loyal listeners will know that the Brew Crew has recently touched upon labor shortages in the events industry, but Will thought it's a topic worthy of its own episode. Nick, Thuy, and Will go over some surprising stats and elaborate on the reasons behind the labor shortage. But that's not all! As clever and resourceful as they are, they also offer some solutions to this pressing issue. In short, all it takes is a different perspective, empathy, and a pro-active attitude. But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Pour some tea, press play, and join the conversation!
