Wait Staff Training
A network of business and economic development organizations is offering training for wait staff. Tips for Tips is a three-hour workshop designed to help restaurant owners and managers build customer loyalty, maximize sales, create a sensational buzz about their restaurant, and provide an exceptional dining experience while helping wait staff increase their earnings.
Carl Lindblade is the workshop instructor. Carl is a hospitality management consultant and professor at the University of New Hampshire and White Mountains Community College, a delegate to the White House Conference on Travel and Tourism, the former director of the New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development and has hands-on success as general manager of several three- and four-diamond hotels, including the Black Point Inn in Scarborough.
The workshop is being held at the Bethel Inn, 21 Broad Street, on Tuesday, June 26, 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. The price is $20 for members of the Bethel, Oxford Hills or River Valley chambers, $25 for non-chamber members, and $10 for each additional member from the same business.

Tips for Tips is part of the Maine Woods Tourism Training Initiative (MWTTI), a project of the Maine Woods Consortium, a growing network of non-profits, businesses and state agencies dedicated to advancing the overall economic, community and environmental well-being of the Maine Woods region. The goal of MWTTI is to help improve the overall success of tourism businesses across the Maine Woods region, and their ability to provide living wage jobs to their employees, by delivering a comprehensive, multi-model training program to meet education and training needs identified by tourism businesses themselves.
MWTTI work in Oxford County is supported by the Northern Forest Center with additional support from the Maine Department of Labor. To find out more about the Maine Woods Tourism Training Initiative and other Maine Woods tourism initiatives, please visit www.MaineWoodsConsortium.org.
