“When I began in the industry I wanted to lead by example, which has led to a very successful business model that I am eager to share during the Nightclub & Bar Convention and Trade Show,” said Jim Meehan, co-founder of PDT. “When opening PDT, we knew that in order to set ourselves apart from the bustle of our competitors that we needed to invest heavily in our employees to achieve their full potential. The keynote will talk about how to position your brand above others by surrounding yourself with a staff that is as invested in success as the management.”
