UCLA Restaurant Leadership Conference
Last week when the Duke Team reached the West Coast, Linda attended UCLA's Restaurant Leadership Conference where she spoke on a panel called "Social Media Marketing" with a variety of restaurant industry professionals.
From left to right: Trey Hall of Smashburger, Randy Lopez marketing consultant, Larry Rusinko SVP of Marketing for Rubio's, Linda Duke and Kevin Higar VP at Technomics.
Linda also had the opportunity to meet Anthony Bourdain, chef, writer and host of Travel Channel's No Reservations where they were both speakers (he was the keynote for lunch and a total crack up!). Linda gave Bourdain a copy of her book, while he signed a copy of his book for her. Stay tuned to our blog for video clips of the speaking!
