Internal Listening Tour

Our Listening Tour is an ongoing series of 1:1 conversations with our Head of Community, Beatriz Aurelio-Saguin, to deepen relationships with community members and ensure our work here at Studio ATAO is aligned with the goals of those we serve.


A Letter from our
Head of Community

We're committed to building this community with you

From Beatriz Aurelio-Saguin


Thank you all for being part of our little corner of the internet! My goal as the Head of Community is to create a space that:

  • Allows folks to share, explore, and learn in safe, yet challenging environments;

  • Connects people to useful resources pertaining to the food, beverage, and hospitality industry (FBH); and

  • Fosters joy and empathy through connection with others.


Given that people and ideas are constantly evolving, I believe our community should too. That's why one of the things I host here at Studio ATAO is an ongoing listening tour. For me, a listening tour is rooted in personal, respectful relationship building and active listening on my part. I want to get to know you and what you care about, and what your dreams are for our organization. That collective information shapes how our community unfolds, and, ultimately, the work that Studio ATAO invests in.

The listening tour is simple: you schedule a 25-minute, 1-1 meeting with me at your convenience via the link below. It'll be a casual conversation where I ask you a few questions over Zoom or phone.

Hearing from you is essential in building a vibrant and meaningful community. I appreciate you all for co-creating this alongside me, and hope to talk with you soon.
