Whine & Dine in the News

What an exciting opportunity for people to learn more about Whine & Dine when PBS visited our Stamford event to tape a segment for Frontline. Soon after, Fox 5 NYC TV News came to visit us at our Midtown Manhattan event! The group was really having a great time at The Gossip Bar on 9th and 49th and quite a few were interviewed by Fox anchor and reporter Lisa Murphy. Here's the three minute segment - enjoy and please share with all you know in HR and Talent Management!
