So proud of Jonathan. He had the courage and determination to change careers 'mid life'. Jonathan was never really happy working in Media/Advertising. Three years ago he decided he wanted to work in Wine and started at the very beginning working in a Bottle Store (Off Licence) in Sydney, Australia. He was already fairly knowledgeable about Wine but decided he would do the Wine Spirits and Educational Trust Diploma. I paid for the course as his 40th Birthday present.
Jonathan soon began to advise customers in the Wine Shop and steadily increased his knowledge to the point that he secured a good position with Taylors Wines, Australia. He held down a demanding job whilst studying very hard for his Diploma. He passed a few months ago and the Graduation Ceremony was held recently. Only wish I could have been there to see him receive his certificate. He is now Brand Marketing Manager for Taylors Wines.
