Jim Meehan, entrepreneur, bartender and the author of James Beard award-winning “Meehan’s Bartender Manual” will deliver the keynote “Your Work Family: Hiring, Training, Mentoring & Motivating Your Team for the Long Haul” during the 2019 Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show on Monday, March 25 from 1 to 1:45 p.m. at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
During the keynote, Meehan will discuss how his leadership style has changed over the years and how to effectively motivate colleagues and staff to achieve their full potential. In addition, Meehan will share his experiences that earned him the title of one of America’s best bartenders, along with the tactics and mindsets that he implements into his business model to mentor the next generation of hospitality superstars.
“When I began in the industry I wanted to lead by example, which has led to a very successful business model that I am eager to share during the Nightclub and Bar Convention and Trade Show,” said Jim Meehan, Co-Founder of PDT. “When opening PDT, we knew that in order to set ourselves apart from the bustle of our competitors that we needed to invest heavily in our employees to achieve their full potential. The keynote will talk about how to position your brand above others by surrounding yourself with a staff that is as invested in success as the management.”
As the co-founder of PDT (stands for Please Don’t Tell), which is now in its twelfth year of business in New York City’s East Village, Meehan has worked in nearly every area of the hospitality business. Meehan’s experience and passion for the industry shows through many professional achievements like his James Beard award nominated “The PDT Cocktail Book” and award-winning “Meehan’s Bartender Manual.”
The keynote is open to all attendees, speakers, sponsors and exhibitors. Additional keynote sessions will be announced soon. Please visit Nightclub & Bar Show’s website for keynote updates and here for a full list of speakers.
