Spirits Training, Pub & Bar Consultancy, Team Training

We can't afford to Train our Team.

And what if they Leave shortly after?!

What if you don't train them...

...and they Stay?!!!

My Consultancy and Training is aimed purely around the Spirit offering of your Pub or Bar. Maximising your Spirits Sales can unlock valuable Profit that you just can't get from Beer or Wine Sales.

Are you maximising your Gin & Tonic sales?

Does your Team know how to tempt Customers with Rum?

Are you looking to offer something different, without daunting your Team with learning Cocktail recipes?

Can your Team confidently talk to Customers about Whiskey & Cognac?

Can they tell Customers the difference between your Gins?

Is your Team EXCITED about serving Spirits?! 

There’s a stunning array of ways in which your team can totally mess up the serving of spirits! A rather sad ‘Gin & Tonic’ with no Ice or Garnish, served in a half pint glass is just the tip of the iceberg.

If you have a nagging thought that your team are missing a trick, and that you could be wowing your customers with amazing Spirit-based Drinks and Cocktails, then you may need some training.

My Training and Consultancy can be the full shebang, or it can just be a simple session of Team Training.

We can work together to compile and implement a new Drinks List, then Train the Team to turn that £6 serve, into an £8 serve. Or you can bring me in to Motivate and Educate your Team on your Current Offering. I can teach them techniques and give them the knowledge, so they can be more confident behind the Bar. 

​With 24 years of experience in the trade, I now love training & educating, and I share that passion with infectious enthusiasm in every single session!

What do my previous clients think?

"I hired Steve for some simple Spirits training for my Team. We’re not a Cocktail Bar, but we wanted to cash in on Spirit Sales. Steve spent the afternoon with us, giving my team lots of Fun and lots of knowledge. He helped us create a simple Spirit & Mixer menu that stands out and draws attention, but more importantly makes us money! 2 days later, that Pineapple Dark & Stormy is already a big seller.

Thank you Steve. We’re all looking forward to you coming back down before the Summer for a refresher session"

Debbie, Chelmsford

"Steve, thank you SO much for the training yesterday. My whole team loved it. You were very engaging and funny which certainly helped my Team bond with you. We’re really looking forward to implementing a new Gin Menu with a whole range of different mixers and garnishes. This will definitely help us stand out from our competition. Thank you. I can’t wait for you to come back again."

Andy, Hertford 

"I booked Steve to come in for the morning and do some Spirits and Cocktail Training. But it was so much more than this! I loved how he opened up with Customer Service and how to actually talk our Customers in to Spirits and away from their traditional Beer or Wine. Steve comes across with superb passion, it really is infectious. From the opening 2 minutes, you can tell he lives and breathes our industry. I would totally recommend him to anyone who is looking to help their Bar Team grow."

Amy, Ipswich
