Hosts: Brandt Krueger, Audrey Gallien
Guests: Beth Kormanik, Bill Homan, André Wells
In this “Wisdom Bank” episode, GatherGeeks hear how two industry veterans launched their careers and how they’ve stayed successful as the industry changes over time. Hosts Brandt Krueger and Audrey Gallien are joined in the studio by BizBash’s executive editor, Beth Kormanik, to listen to Bill Homan, co-owner of Design Cuisine, and André Wells, founder and creative officer of Events by André Wells. Homan shares his “never say no” mindset for catering, how to balance intuition and generational learning, and how consistency in catering is the key to long-term success. Wells describes how at age 17 he knew he was destined for a career in events, the power of listening, leading with creativity before budget-crunching, and why events matter to him. This episode is the perfect opportunity to sit down and hear from two industry gurus who are still in the trenches moving the industry forward.
