Anthony’s career has never been dull, and the subject of wine, spirits and food has been a constant theme. Periods as licensee, restaurateur, general manager of a top-flight racecourse, and
senior positions at Mars, Courage and Brent Walker have given Anthony an in-depth knowledge of the drinks industry at all levels upon which he draws for illustrations in his entertaining courses and presentations.
His interactive presentation style is light and amusing. He
presents wine knowledge and tastings in a manner that excludes the pomposity that can put potential oenophiles off the subject for life.
His training company, AS&A, was founded in 1990. The administrative centre and a training resource is in the village of Over, just outside
Cambridge where Anthony offers a wide spectrum of courses aimed at the licensed retail. He has won many awards for the quality of his training.
Courses are fully mobile and Anthony is prepared to present them anywhere they may be required. In June 2012 he flew to Mumbai to
deliver a WSET Level 3 (Advanced) course in wines and spirits.
All talks and courses are delivered through Anthony’s lively, animated PowerPoint presentations and he carries the necessary laptop and projector with him to lectures.
