(Tallahassee, Fla.) The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA), in partnership with Charthouse Learning, is proud to offer an innovative training program to businesses across the state. The interactive event, titled “A Fish! Experience,” which was inspired by Seattle’s Pike Place Fish Market, is designed to improve teamwork, customer service, employee engagement, leadership and retention. The program, built on the “FISH! Philosophy,” is scheduled to take place in Fort Myers and Sarasota on Tuesday, May 10. The following day, Wednesday, May 11, it will be offered in St. Petersburg. The final opportunity to participate will be in Orlando on Thursday, May 12.
Guest speaker Deena Ebbert will inspire business owners and employees to start their own attitude epidemic. Insightful, with a knack for finding fun and delight in the world around us, Ebbert has a passion for performance, as a former professional opera singer and longtime member of corporate America, where she led many top-performing teams. She understands how to motivate teams through compassion and trust. Ebbert invites participants to begin seeing their jobs as a tool to make their lives complete, and The FISH! Philosophy as a way to build a common language for success.
