In early 2018, LWH launched Last Word Academy, a tuition free mentorship and training program focused on improving leadership within the hospitality industry.  Supported by Woodford Reserve, the innovative program addresses the open-ended challenges of managing a hospitality operation, encouraging attendees to form their own creative solutions to problems in a collaborative team environment. To date, over 300 bar and restaurant managers have participated in our classes and seminars.  Last Word Academy is committed to advancing hospitality by investing in its most important asset – people.

Led by a Last Word Hospitality partner, director, or notable guest, each class is conducted around a conference table, and attendees will be encouraged to participate actively throughout each class. Classes run for approximately 90 minutes, with a 30-minute Q&A session after each class. Attendees will be asked to share their own hospitality stories, make new friends, discuss collaboration opportunities, and share a proper glass of whisky from our good friends and sponsors at Woodford Reserve.
