Part 2 The Art of Public Speaking
We will teach you the fine art of getting and holding attention, storytelling, and creating a confident presentation of the deep, broad knowledge you hold in your head. Passing on the passion and romance of whisky is all about stories.
Part 3 Marketing of Upscale Products
How do you sell upscale products or services, especially in our changing economy? The same way successful people always have: with language that has a sense of glamor, mystery, and magic; with messaging that doesn’t just tell people “what,” or “how,” but strongly communicates “why.” We will take you through this section focused on writing and communicating the glamor of whisky.
Part 4 Blending Whisky
You will gain hands on experience in creating whisky blends using the fundamentals of taste and smell profiles.
