Suffolk Wine Courses
  Matt S, December 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed participating in Helen's WSET level 2 course. She was a very thorough and engaging teacher which made the learning of some tricky material all the more easier! In terms of the course, it was incredibly useful in providing an extensive knowledge of a variety of wines and spirits and it has helped me to no end in my current work. I would highly encourage anyone who is interested to participate and also like to take this oppurtunity to thank Helen for a cracking 10 weeks!

We found Helen's friendly and knowledgeable approach went down well with our staff. She organised a series of short sessions for us designed to introduce some new employees to the basics of wine appreciation and encouraged them to discover more for themselves in due course. Above all, we believe that wine should be fun and Helen conveys this very well indeed.

Helen is both knowledgeable and personable, traits which make her course a pleasure to attend. Having now taken 2 WSET courses with Helen, I can vouch for her ability to impart knowledge in a relaxed, enjoyable environment, and that's NOT the wine talking. Thank you Helen.

I asked Helen if she could arrange a wine tasting for my 70th birthday at The Randolph in Reydon. As it turned our she and David Smith there were old colleagues and they worked together like a well-tuned Stradivarius to produce a splendid series of courses all of which had natural affinity of food to wine. While I had some views on various wines Helen was able to steer me in a more adventurous direction which turned out to be as pleasing on the tongue as it was inspiring for the mind. I would have no hesitation in recommending Helen for your events.

Helen has delivered the WSET training for Adnams for the last several years in her own inimitable style and with phenomenal success. The programmes are offered to all employees regardless of role but are specifically aimed at customer facing employees within our shops, hotels and managed inns. The courses are proven to increase both knowledge and confidence and this in turn enhances the customer experience and delivers greater sales revenue. Helen always manages to enthuse and inspire learners and for the vast majority of them the first WSET course they complete is rarely their last.

I have completed WSET Levels 2 and 3 with Helen and, as well as having a great teacher who could embrace those with very different initial knowledge, we all seemed to have a lot of fun. Helen gave an excellent talk on Sherry and other fortified wines to a 'Wine Appreciation Group' in Halesworth and the members voted it the best meeting of the year.
