Food For Thought sticks with you.
Because of its intimacy, because of the personal nature of all your interactions - with speakers, with participants, with the conference organizers - Food For Thought attaches itself to you in ways that permanently affect your work, your outlook and your vision.
This is two and a half days of total immersion with fewer than 100 participants and a group of groundbreaking, amazingly innovative, and entrepreneurial speakers who don't just talk and run, but invite further interaction and conversation.
Food For Thought is time and money well-spent because the intimacy and proximity creates a more powerful, more lasting and more productive experience than you've ever encountered before. It's new thinking. Presented in an entirely new way.
You'll leave charged up. Ready to take on the world. Prepared to exit your comfort zone. Inspired to shake the tree.
And you'll stay that way. We promise.
This year's agenda is packed with discussions about groundbreaking innovations that are changing lives worldwide.

Yael Cohen is an entrepreneur, philanthropist and healthy living advocate. A former finance professional, Yael launched the organization Fuck Cancer in 2009 after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Determined to marshal strength for her mom, Yael decided to use the "F" word to fight the "C" word. Now three years old, Fuck Cancer speaks directly to Gen Y about issues surrounding cancer prevention and treatment, and Yael herself serves as an advocate for a range of health and health care issues.
In June 2012, at age 25, Yael was named one of Fast Company's "100 Most Creative People in Business," and she is featured in the July 2012 issue of Elle magazine as a "2012 Genius Award" recipient for her work in bringing disease prevention awareness to her generation. Yael was also named a "Breast Cancer Warrior" by Women's Health (October 2012).
Yael is not only versed in health care issues; through her work with Fuck Cancer, she has become a recognized leader in philanthropy and social entrepreneurship. As Elle reports, Yael is "harnessing her generation's secret weapon – social media – by building an online community for friends and family... 'We are the first generation with the technology to change the whole world.'"
Yael has been a featured participant at such important events as the Summit Series (Washington, D.C. and Miami), the Clinton Global Initiative, Big Omaha, TEDWomen, TEDx Vancouver, the United Nations Nexus Conference and TEDMED. In 2011, Yael was named (alongside Bill Gates and Bono) one of the "12 People Who are Transforming Philanthropy" by Canada's The Globe and Mail and one of Canada's "Hot 20 Under 30" in Chatelaine magazine's 2011 Women of the Year issue.

Chris Hastings first discovered his appreciation for food during family vacations in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Hastings deferred his college acceptance to work in the kitchen at Silver Cricket in Charlotte, NC, then enrolled in Johnson & Wales in Providence, RI.
After graduation, Hastings returned to the South, accepting a position at the Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta where he first learned to apply European influences to southern cuisine.

John and Alicia George now regularly field visitors from around the world who come to witness their labor of love - and grab a cup of great coffee.
Vintage Trouble formed in 2010 out of the ashes of a few other bands, and not by chance, Ty Taylor (vocal) and Nalle Colt (guitar) teamed up with drummer Richard Danielson and bassist Rick Barrio Dill. They entered The Bomb Shelter Studio, recorded an album's worth of material in three days, which was intended to be demos and ended up being pressed into CDs. The Bomb Shelter Sessions became Vintage Trouble's first album.
Weekly residences in L.A. led to a large assembly of fans in a short amount of time; these fans became known as the TroubleMakers. It was that underground buzz that led to legendary manager Doc McGhee taking notice and signing Vintage Trouble to his roster after hearing only a single chorus. Their first venture overseas resulted in a similar groundswell with Music Weekly naming them 2011 Breakout Artist of the Year and HMV hailing them as their Next Big Thing.
The band's performance on Later... with Jools Holland was one of the most talked about of the year, blowing up Twitter as the 6th most tweeted topic worldwide just hours after the show. The very next day, their self-released debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions entered the charts, becoming the No. 1 R&B Album and No. 2 Rock Album on Amazon UK, No. 6 on Amazon overall and No. 13 on iTunes. The band went on to play 80 shows in 100 days in front of an estimated 400,000 people throughout the UK and Germany. The next three months brought them an opportunity to support Bon Jovi in stadiums and arenas on the UK, Ireland and German legs of the tour — all the while, headlining smaller venues. Guitarist Magazine ran a feature about Nalle, and The Bomb Shelter Sessions was named one of the Top 25 Guitar Albums of the Year by Total Guitar Magazine.
Lead vocalist Ty Taylor was invited to front Queen for Freddie Mercury's 65th birthday celebration in London, setting the stage for Vintage Trouble to embark on their third overseas tour, with destinations including Italy, Germany, Paris, Belgium and the Netherlands.
2012 proved to be just as busy. In January they sold out The Troubadour in Los Angeles and took up residencies at both The Cosmopolitan and Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Their first video "Nancy Lee," filmed entirely with an iPhone, won at the Original iPhone Film Fest, not just taking the Music Video category, but the festival's grand prize as well. In February, Google Music selected Vintage Trouble as the featured artist at Sundance where their live performance rocked the film community, and they made their first appearance in Rolling Stone. To celebrate the official US release of The Bomb Shelter Sessions, Best Buy featured Vintage Trouble on their TV screens in stores nationwide.
Vintage Trouble was invited by KISS to open for them at the 2012 NCAA Final Four Basketball Tournament in New Orleans, toured the East Coast with The Cranberries and joined Lenny Kravitz for a German tour in the summer of 2012. More recently, they have been supporting The Who on their North American Tour and making appearances on late night TV with both David Letterman and Jay Leno.
Vintage Trouble's Ty Taylor, Nalle Colt, Richard Danielson and Rick Barrio Dill together form a quartet of sincere musicians whose combination of hard work, talent and luck are undoubtedly going to take them right where they deserve to be: on our radios, in our cars, in our headphones, on our televisions, at the venues where we go to see our favorite bands and on the soundtrack of our favorite moments in life.
