“Thank you so much for facilitating this great course. My staff really enjoyed and gained so much knowledge. I did my WSET level 4 course 11 years ago with Marc Shipway at the Institute of Art in Vancouver and it is unbelievable how much you forget after so many years so thank you to Shrawan for being so knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
