Capture3Restaurant industry professionals will gather in Dallas, Texas this June 3-5th, for the 5th annual Summer Brand Camp produced by Black Box Intelligence (formerly TDn2K) and BTC Revolutions. The two host firms represent the best business intelligence, research, and digital brand expertise available to the service sector workplace. Industry professionals who come to “experience” Summer Brand Camp include operators, human resource and recruitment practitioners, marketers, social media and community managers, along with savvy technology partners. The theme of “Workplace, Marketplace, One Place” focuses on the intersection of employer and consumer brands in the digital age. Conference content and events promote the vision of a work environment without silos, anchored in community and purpose that can improve the future for the restaurant industry and their stakeholders.

Capture“I thought Summer Brand Camp would be a typical conference. Little did I know it would change my outlook on where I wanted to take my career, and better yet, amplified everything that I was already proud about in my work” said Chris Ebbeler, Senior Manager Workplace Community and People Branding at Brinker International. “This conference has had the largest impact on my professional mindset in many years” added Jessie Bray, Vice President of Human Resources and Training at Romacorp.

Speaker line-up includes some of the best, brightest and most talented branding and business leaders including Scott Stratten, Author of “Unmarketing & QR Codes Kill Kittens”; Dr.Bob Deutsh, Cognitive Anthropologist, Author and CEO Brain Sells; Anne Mahlum, Founder of Back on My Feet; Avery Block, HR Social Marketing and Engagement Manager at Taco Bell; and James Markham, CEO and Founder of Project Pie.

Brands, Focus Brands and Buffalo Wild Wings. The 2014 event has already attracted brands including Chili’s, Wildflower Bread Company, Applebee’s, CC’s Coffee and Tyson Foods.
