Carrying on from the high quality offering at their first conference in 2014, the organisers followed up with a diverse selection of speakers covering everything from social music to the irrelevancy of being right.
Daniel Humm, Richard Betts, Danny Meyer and Alan Richman are all included in the lineup of speakers and every presentation delivered during the two day conference is now available to watch online.

Staff shortages are hitting the hospitality sector hard, prompting some restaurants to look outside the industry to train those without restaurant experience for life in the kitchen. Andrew Friedman finds out more.
