Topic: Creating Positive Results Through Communication
Kevin McCarney is the founder of the Poquito Más restaurant chain, which opened in 1984 and turned into a $15 million-a-year business with twelve locations in the Los Angeles area. Because each restaurant produces over nine hundred tortillas a day, Kevin invented an aluminum tortilla press, a machine on which he holds multiple patents. Kevin has been a guest speaker at the USC Marshall School of Business, the UCLA Anderson School of Business, and Woodbury University. He has served on the board of directors of the California Restaurant Association, the Burbank Arts in Education Foundation, the Boys and Girls Club of Burbank, and the Universal City-North Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. He has authored The Secrets of Successful Communication: A Simple Guide to Effective Encounters In Business.
On the show today is Kevin McCarney, founder of Poquito Mas restaurant chain and author of The Secrets of Successful Communication. The book is full of simple yet profound insights that make every conversation effective and supportive. These are skills that can be easily shared with your front-line employees, your students, or your children. www.BigBrain.com
