In this interview with Professor Brian Connors of Florida International University, some of the topics we discuss include:

  • His travels through the world of hospitality and education, including stints at Cornell, and Johnson & Wales, time spent in Ireland and at Michelin star restaurants in France, and even a little bit of chef work on private yachts.
  • How Brian thinks about generalists and specialists in the hospitality space and what you can do to apply your unique skill set to a bar or restaurant career.
  • What Florida International University and Bacardi are doing to explore the new face of hospitality during a pandemic and prepare the next generation of chefs, bartenders, and managers for the challenges they’ll face moving forward.
  • Why Bar Project 2021 took a page out of the tech industry’s playbook by incorporating a sort of hospitality hackathon into their program.
  • Where Brian and I think the industry is headed as we continue our march into 2021 and beyond.
  • How to survive a drunken trip to Oaxaca with Hunter S. Thompson,
  • And much, much more
