June 2019 Luncheon: How Houston Became America's Food Capital Through Marketing & PR

Presenting Sponsor

Skyline Houston



Ever wanted to hear a James Beard Award winner that has been on shows like Bizarre Foods, Ugly Delicious, CBS This Morning and countless other media courses? Well now's your chance!

Join us on Wednesday, June 12 for the next AMA Houston networking luncheon to hear how celebrity chef, Chris Shepherd (owner of three of the hottest restaurants in Houston - Georgia James, One Fifth Mediterranean, and UB Presrev) has transformed our very own city of Houston into America's food capital through his marketing and PR efforts with PR partner Lindsey Brown.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Learning how to weave your story together with a larger entity to increase awareness, clout, and notoriety in the market.
  • Understanding how Chris Shepherd has leveraged the James Beard Award to tell his story and help propel Houston into the national food spotlight through his PR and marketing efforts.
  • Hearing the story behind Southern Smoke, the nonprofit foundation and annual barbecue event Shepherd established in 2015 to help food-and-beverage employees with emergency relief-and how it's been able to raise $1.3 million in relief funds.
