Ann Geoghagen
Food and Beverage Track Captain

Working in locations from Singapore to Italy to the Maldives to New York City – Ann has seen the impact an internal culture can make on a business. Using this knowledge she helped open the Baccarat Hotel, the 1 Hotels, NYC night clubs and even a few pizza brands. Knowing that a company has a unique identity is key, she now helps small businesses develop the culture they want to achieve in order to accelerate growth. While she is primarily focused in the Food and Beverage / Hospitality realm, she enjoys working with passionate people ready to explode their business.
