Cocktails in the Country: “An Eye-Opening Experience”

“Attending the Cocktails in the Country program was an eye-opening experience. It has allowed me to reflect on myself not only as a bartender but, as a person.

“It is easy to get caught up in a busy shift and schedule and allow it to hinder the customer service you provide to a guest. As Gary told stories about his experiences, I sat and tried to think of past instances where I could have applied a different approach to a difficult situation. I was able to identify my strengths and weakness by either related to how he handled a situation or by thinking, ‘I should try that.’

“When I returned back home, I was more conscious of my actions and attitude towards guest. I made it a point to make more eye contact and personalize my guest experiences to the best of my abilities.

“I have noticed that guest have been more appreciative for their service, and I have been given verbal compliments about how enjoyable I have made their experience.

“It was a pleasant surprise to notice how people will actually take the time to say thank you or give your positive feedback. It is rewarding to have a relationship like that with your customers.”
