NAMA announced that Howard Behar, former president of Starbucks, will kick off the Coffee, Tea and Water Show 2018 (CTW) as the opening session keynote speaker, on Monday, November 12 in New Orleans.

As a renowned business leader, author, speaker and mentor, Behar has influenced the lives of professionals at all stages of their careers and at all levels and roles. Shaped by his experiences working in his parents’ Seattle market, schooled in operations and management in a consumer-oriented retail business, and part of the leadership triumvirate that built the iconic Starbucks brand, Behar is the ultimate “servant leader” who is known for his memorable lessons.

NAMA is participating in CTW show for this dialogue, moderated by Liz Williams, president and director of the National Food & Beverage Foundation. The event promises to provide an enlightening view of Behar’s leadership principles and philosophies as he imparts wisdom everyone can use in their day-to-day lives.
