What Attendees Are Saying
FLEX was much different than any other conference I’ve been to. It was all about relationship building. Everyone there seemed to care passionately about the restaurant industry, particularly the finance aspect of it, but were more interested in the relationships they could form and how they could help each other.
— Kate Jaspon, CFO, Dunkin' Brands
What makes FLEX unique is the intimate size of the group, the setting, the content, the breakout sessions, the fun - it was all part of bringing us together. I made a lot of new friends here who I plan to bounce ideas off of in the future.
— Vince Burchianti, CFO, Firehouse Restaurant Group
The FLEX forum is really conducive to creating real relationships, not just transactions. I have no doubt, as a sponsor, that we’ll end up getting business out of this in the long run. But that is really a bi-product of having created a bond of trust between people. At the end of the day, especially in an industry like foodservice and hospitality, people want to work with people who they like and who they trust.
— Mike Lukianoff, Cheif Analytics Officer, Fishbowl
We get a lot of hard skill training but what’s missing is developing the soft skills... influencing people... leadership development... how do you become more valuable to your company? What you leave with is a great peer group of trusted partners, an assessment of your leadership style, and a game plan.
— Paul Hineman, CEO, Restaurant Start
