If you are in catering, this is a session you won't want to miss!

With compelling storytelling, Matt and Ted Lee take you behind-the-scenes to show the challenges, perseverance, integrity, and work ethic necessary to achieve excellence.”
Join the Lee brothers as they dig deep into the “messy, mad world of catering” and give voice to all of the unsung heroes of catered events. The brothers will read passages from and discuss Hotbox, plus answer a few pointed questions from the audience.
