The Caterer People Summit Manchester

The Caterer ’s People Summit Manchester will be a day focused on people with advice, case studies and operational stories on how best to attract, retain and look after your teams.

Our inaugural Manchester People Summit in Manchester will gather an exciting line up of panellists and guest speakers who have adapted the way they support and engage with their staff.

Our experts will share what new skills are essential in an increasingly people-devoid era for the industry and how managers and businesses have responded to acquiring the skills required to fill these gaps as well as the importance of role models, training, and mentors.

Our presenters will be interviewed by The Caterer  team to find out how they have been impacted by the pandemic, post-Brexit supply issues and the ongoing staff shortages. We will ask how they have retained their staff, and how they have changed their processes to ensure their teams are making time for themselves and practising self-care to avoid burn out and mental health issues.

This is must-attend event, perfect for hospitality HR professionals and any leader who wants to harness the power of their people.


Topics covered include:

  • Recruiting for a new opening: strategy and deployment
  • Restaurant reviews – and why they are good for staff attraction
  • Alternative staff sourcing: visas, apprenticeships, and charities
  • Keeping it fresh with training and development
  • A sustainable hospitality future 
  • Teamwork and wellness
  • How to use technology to support your business and teams
