Peter Giuliano has been one of the Specialty Coffee Association of America‘s Symposium advocates and architects from the very beginning. This year, he sat for the first time as the Symposium’s director, and the bold new direction for Symposium was palpable – the venue had a certain gravitas, the lighting was sexier, the talks were buzzier, and the enhancement of interaction has been heightened to new levels.
For the first time in its five year run, all of the Symposium talks will be released online, in an effort to make the event more interactive for the wider public. Part of that interactivity is our own Symposium Colloquium series, bite-sized interview morsels with each of the speakers at Symp2013 that will run alongside Symposium content all year long. In the second installment of Symposium Colloquium, we ask Peter about his new role, his visions for the future, and why Symp 2013 was a resounding success.
This episode, like the new Symposium, is shorter, buzzier, and enhances interactivity. Watch our video before watching Mr. Giuliano’s 2013 Symposium welcome address, “The Coffee Symposium”, which was released today over at the SCAA Symposium website. Here’s more from that video’s release:
