Thank you to everyone that joined us for an insightful webinar with DKUK member’s A Close Shave and The Bear Kitchen. Please find the recording below, and do feel free to share!

The future in hospitality is not just creating an extraordinary dining experience or the culinary feats of the kitchen, but the mission and storytelling that guests and employees can identify with, and want to take part in and support.

But how can restaurants, hotels and other companies adapt to fit this paradigm shift in customer and employee expectations? All while continuing the digitalisation that the current pandemic has escalated the need of. The Danish Company, A Close Shave, is showcasing their tool for digitalising knowledge sharing and company culture, while Michael Tingsager will share insights into the current climate in hospitality and why culture and storytelling will become your key competitive advance.

About A Close Shave

A Close Shave UK is a branch of the Danish company, A Close Shave Aps. A Close Shave was founded in 2003, and our social knowledge sharing platform, Academy, was developed in 2011. We strive to help companies engage with their employees, ensure motivated, happy and knowledgable employees, and build healthy company cultures that support growth.

Academy strengthens knowledge sharing, trains employees and gives you a strong tool to increase your sales and improve your service. The data collected on the system along with the admin tools makes it a one-stop-shop for both Management, HR and employees to learn and grow.

About The Bear Kitchen

You have the power to change the world. How? By choosing to eat better food.

We founded The Bear Kitchen to help you do just that. Our supper clubs and event catering service bring together food lovers who care about what they eat, and the planet it comes from.​

This is not about diets, deprivation or turning foods into enemies. Food is joy. But we fully respect individual choices. Vegetarians, vegans, omnivores: all are welcome at The Bear Kitchen. We want to unite people around the pleasure of eating well.​

Our philosophy is simple: eat like a bear. Our furry friend has no concept of local or seasonal ingredients, but she eats nothing else. She munches mostly plants, and treats herself occasionally to good quality fish and meat. Oh, and she’s never heard of a factory farm. She’d feel right at home with our menus. And so, we hope, will you.​

Who’s hungry?
