Larry Winget, AKA The Pitbull of Personal Development, will keynote the 9th annual Fast Casual Executive Summit, Oct. 12-14 in Denver.
His presentation will pull material from three of his six bestselling books, Shut Up, Stop Whining & Get a Life, It's Called Work for a Reason and People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It. The material includes principles for success that can be applied to life, money, customer service, sales, leadership and more, said Cherryh Butler, host of the event and editor of FastCasual.com, the online magazine that not only covers the fast casual industry, but also produces the Summit.
The Summit brings together CEOs and other high-level executives of fast casual restaurant brands — big and small — for networking opportunities and educational sessions to help them grow their brands.
Winget attacks traditional business wisdom and offers simple truths in his caustic, thought-provoking and humorous style. He offers a realistic approach that will work for anyone, at any time and in any business, Butler said.
"Our attendees are some of the most respected and brightest in the industry, so we knew we had to bring in someone who would be direct and 'real' with them," she said.
Attendees of the Fast Casual Executive Summit will enjoy an exclusive Sunday evening Q&A session and a post-discussion cocktail party with Winget, who has starred in his own television series and appeared in national television commercials.
The two-and-a-half day event also features a fast casual restaurant food tour, other keynote and breakout educational sessions, sponsor demonstrations of the latest products and a dinner party at Coors Field, home of Major League Baseball's Colorado Rockies.
This Summit has been created specifically for C-level executives, VPs, and directors for restaurant operators in the fast casual and QSR segments.
Registration is now open at fastcasualsummit.com, and early-bird pricing is in effect.
