Meetings F&B expert and frequent Meetings Today contributor Tracy Stuckrath, owner of thrive! meetings & events, is launching an eight-course Every Meal Matters With Tracy Stuckrath educational series for planners that will cover a wide range of topics.

The cost for the eight-module, 10-week series is $697, with registration set to close January 8 at publication time. The first segment will launch January 11.

“I launched this course because it became apparent from the questions I get from members of my Eating at a Meeting Facebook group and through in-person—before COVID—and virtual trainings I’ve provided over the last 10 years,” Stuckrath said, adding that the courses will cover both F&B issues common in the pre-pandemic environment as well as how to work with pandemic guidelines.

Course content and features include the following:

  • How to create menus.
  • The questions meeting and event planners need to ask attendees and vendors.
  • How to work with culinary teams to successfully and execute events and/or meetings that are representative of and inclusive of all attendees.
  • The legal, financial and ethical responsibility in feeding others.
  • How to decipher a catering menu for hidden ingredients.
  • Current data on F&B beverage trends and best practices.
  • The latest COVID food safety standards.
  • Weekly live, interactive Ask Tracy! Sessions.
  • Live and pre-recorded video lessons.
  • Workbooks and reference guides for desk and event notebooks.
  • Bonus tips, gifts and guest speakers.
  • Lifetime access to the course content, including all updates as it is refined, and enhanced with new needs and best practices.
  • Over 15 hours of event CEU credits.
  • Access to a forum of colleagues for feedback and insight.
