“Food for thought"
As a graphic designer by trade, but spent a good amount of time as waiter for many years. On a packed Friday, a busy restaurant can be quite chaotic and unexpected. High pressure on the dining floor is the normal scene. Pretending that everything's fine in the kitchen whereas it is on fire.
Truly understand the meaning of “Hell's Kitchen”. In order to get through the night we need to develop a set of skill. For example; a diplomat skill to negotiate with the cooks, deal with fussy customers, being a good salesperson and pump up the sale. It’s a multifunctional task. No one should notice the chaotic that lie underneath.
After his return to Bangkok, he resumed to the Thai design industry. He realized that both working platforms share some similar aspects. Blending the set of skills and applying them into the design business came to him naturally. In his keynote presentation, Tanachot will share his experience by narrating through restaurant business and show how he utilized them for a design firm.
