Our good friend David Howitt over at The Meriwether Group is going to be featured at the World Food Travel Association‘s FoodWorx Conference in January. This is an exciting event for Portland to be hosting, and we can’t wait to hear what David has to say about “whole brain thinking; the left AND the right, analytics AND artistry, value AND meaning, financial performance AND impact on the world” in his talk entitled Fulfilling Your Journey – The Power of And. We really like the sound of that.
The theme of the conference is The Future of Food, and speakers like Michael Morissey, Director at Food Innovation Center at OSU; Brian David Johnson, Futurist at Intel; and Karen Brooks, Food Editor for Portland Monthly Magazine will be joining David to tackle questions like, How did Portland get its reputation as the country’s foodiest city? How do you create an artisan food business, and How will technology impact food?
Sounds cool, right? We think so.
