Bringing together restaurant industry finance and insights professionals.
In 2019, Black Box Intelligence will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary. Serving a rapidly growing community of operations, finance, marketing and insight teams and uncovering the relevant insights in those numbers is what gets us up every day; and we know the numbers are just the start. This pre-conference session is designed to provide an intimate and private opportunity to tackle the complex competitive and financial pressures currently felt by the chain restaurant industry.
As only TDn2K can do, we will connect the dots between employees, consumers and financial performance. What do the best companies do that makes a difference? This is an opportunity to spend time with your peers, outside experts and thought leaders. Critical discussions will include the economic forecast, consumer behavior and insights, the impact of technology, investor relations and the critical labor market challenges we face today. As always our focus will be on data that informs, conversations that tackle the tough issues, along with hospitality that delights.
Who is the consumer and how are they changing? How is your company adapting? How is the economy affecting our day to day operations?
Where do insights belong in the organization? How much does your workforce determine the success, or failure, of the brand? How do HR, finance and insights work together to build culture and drive performance?
Woven throughout the day will be how all of this contributes to the bottom line. Weighing cost and efficiencies of new and existing efforts and how they support the business.
