I am the
The USBG does an incredible job empowering bartenders in their careers. This has never been as clear to me than during this difficult year. Besides its regular offerings of peer-to-peer learning, expert seminars with internationally recognized brand representatives, service projects, and cocktail competitions, the USBG has been instrumental in creating and implementing resources to assist those in the hospitality industries during this time of crisis.
The USBG has been a game changer in my career path in hospitality. Between the amazing educational opportunities and the unbelievable people I’ve met, it has made me the best version of my professional self.
Not only has the USBG been an incredible resource for networking, finding a tribe of people who care about the same things I do, and educational opportunities; I’ve also been able to travel to Mexico, Amsterdam, and Italy. The USBG has done so much for me that I continue to try to give back.
The USBG has really helped me find myself. Through the connections I’ve made locally and nationally, together we’ve been able to help our communities thrive.
My biggest takeaway from the USBG is the way it builds a community of like-minded individuals to support each other. Our industry needs it.
