brunches & dinners
Greg's first job ever (busboy), in college (food delivery) & after college (doorman) were in the hotel/restaurant industry. He has coordinated & hosted (or co-hosted) more than 300 events to bring people of different races, cultures & backgrounds together. The groups have ranged in size from 5 to 500. The events have included brunches, dinners, galas & parties. They have taken place around the USA, Canada & Africa. His efforts to team up with hotels & restaurants on civic projects have been featured by media like Nation's Restaurant News & Beverage World. Good Morning America buried a Time Capsule which chronicled Greg's efforts to bring diverse people together for brunches. In 2006, he received an honorary degree in Hospitality Management. The books have been used by many restaurants & other F&B-related groups like GNC Live Well, Bistro Provence & The Republic of Tea. Greg has been invited to speak at events for F&B-related audiences including events for staff of General Mills & a convention for companies who make & sell ice cream.
