ZingTrain Workshop at BU


If you’ve been feeling like the energy is off lately in the hospitality industry, you’re not alone. Ari Weinzweig, the co-founder of the Ann Arbor, Michigan collection of Zingerman’s delis and bakeries, will be in town on Monday, August 12th for an all-day workshop at the Boston University School of Gastronomy on the subject, “Zingerman‘s 12 Natural Laws of Business: The Energy Crisis in the American Workplace,” and if you’re looking to keep your employees engaged, inspired, and focused on a common goal in your workplace be sure to grab a spot.

Zingerman founded his company in 1982 with his partner Paul Saginaw with a 25-seat delicatessen, which has grown over the years into 10 different businesses with more than 700 employees and close to $65 million in annual sales, and he’s laid out their success in his book, Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading: Part 1, A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to Building a Great Business. During the workshop he’ll introduce his 12 Natural Laws of Business, explain why operating in violation of the Laws is creating the workplace energy crisis, and meaningful ways to help your organization align with the Laws to become more successful, positive, and sustainable.

The workshop runs from 10:00am to 5:00pm at BU’s School of Gastronomy at 808 Commonwealth Ave; spots cost $430 (grab ‘em here). There’s no need to pack a lunch, either, because Sofra will be serving up breakfast and coffee, and Flour has lunch covered. If the ticket price is a little steep, there will also be a small number of scholarships available, just write a letter explaining how the workshop will help you become the leader you want to be and send it here by Friday, July 12th.
