I’m speaking to the Federal Planning Division tomorrow morning at their annual Training Conference on the topic of “Strategic Planning to Maximize Community Food, Beverage and Entertainment Options.” I’ve been working with my co-presenter, Geoff Baekey of CHM, on a consulting project to assist the Air Force with transforming their food and beverage operations, and tomorrow morning we’ll be sharing our study process and showing some illustrative examples.
The program synopsis is:
Quality of life for Military Personnel can be enhanced by appropriately located or positioned food, beverage and entertainment options. Base Planners can enhance their planning efforts by understanding methods that the private sector uses to undertake leisure time services planning. Through an overview of leisure time privatization planning initiatives, the session will outline the processes undertaken to identify and select locations for improved quality of life services on military bases nationwide.
