Chef Thomas Keller: Bouncing Back from Setbacks (video)

Thomas Keller is a successful chef, restaurateur, and cookbook writer. Chef Keller shared with a packed auditorium of Stanford business school students how he got his start as a dishwasher, how he overcame a set-back, and what drives his decision to open new restaurants and expand his business. 

Keller is the only American-born chef to hold multiple three star ratings by the Michelin Guide. He was interviewed by Colleen Donovan, MBA class of 2013, as part of the View From The Top speaker series at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

Brian Yanish -'s insight:

I enjoyed Chef Keller's talk, some key points:

  • When you training an employee if you do it right they will be better than you.

  • Move your staff around to different positions, have them learn other areas of the business.

  • Know your skill limits then hire the right people to fill the gaps.
  • What matters most is education
