Have you ever planned a meeting at a resort? If not, you’re in for a treat if you consider one for your next meeting. There are a multitude of resorts to choose from in the Midwest, each offering something unique to guests. And while many offer a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, they are not short on the state-of-the-art technology needed to make your meeting a success.
Chris Hammond has been a professional chef for 15 years, but he prides his hospitality career on being equal parts “culinary director and numbers Guy.” Chris started cooking holiday meals alongside his mother when he was five which led to becoming a chef. After experiences in several private businesses and five diamond/premiere hotel properties, Chris joined the Great Wolf Lodge team. In 2012, he left the Executive Chef role at the Great Wolf Lodge in Concord, North Carolina to become the Corporate Director of Food and Beverage for all Great Wolf Lodge resorts. Chris is based in Madison, Wisconsin.
It’s time to kick things up a notch. Your attendees need to step out of their comfort zones and maybe even face their fears! There are exciting adventures to be found across the Midwest, any time of year.
