Hospitality—particularly restaurant services—are very important to our C What’s On audience since they often go out to eat before attending a show. This week, we managed a visit with Steve Hewins, the President and CEO of the brand new Hospitality Maine. This organization is a result of a merger between the Maine Restaurant Association and the Maine Innkeeper’s Association. What’ s particularly interesting about our interview with Steve is a proposed apprenticeship program, which pays people to work in the hospitality industry while earning credit toward a certificate or advancing toward a degree. Find out more in this week’s C What’s On.
For this edition of C What’s On, we caught up with the very busy motivation speaker and entrepreneur, Travis Mills. Travis is a retired US Army Staff Sergeant who was wounded during the war in Afghanistan and refused to let his injuries get him, creating the Travis Mills Foundation to help combat injured veterans. He also created a veterans retreat here in Maine, and was recently honored by the New England Council as New Englander of the Year. His book “Tough As They Come” is still extremely popular with anyone facing adversity. His latest venture is as co-owner of CBU Benefits, a supplemental insurance company based in Hallowell, Maine. You’ll learn a bit more about all of these topics in this week’s C What’s On.
