I’ve experienced this first hand. Let me tell you a quick story.

Back at the beginning of my own bartending journey I was working behind a bar at a busy event and I happened to strike up  conversation with a well known event organizer.

Long story short, that chance encounter helped me get my foot in the door of exclusive private events.

That opened more doors and I was able to use those connections to launch Toronto Bar School!

The key point is this.

Treat every conversation with a customer when you’re bartending as an opportunity. Be genuine and friendly. t goes a long way.
