We’ve got you covered
Whether you're new or just need a refresher, here's a reminder of the online resources we offer at The Blend (all for free of course!).
Community is at the centre of what we do, and if recent times have taught us anything, it's that we are nothing without each other. We believe in bringing the hospitality industry together, providing you with the knowledge and support to help you progress in your career. At the moment, with many of us restricted to our homes or local areas, we have amped up the content on our website and social media pages to give you more to choose from.
Not sure where to begin? Here’s some to start with!
Interested in saving our planet and become more sustainable?
If you want to try something new or want to explore the world of creative, sustainable cocktail making, from the ground up then join Sam Egerton and special guest hosts Luke Ashton and Giacomo Francheshi. This online series, GROWING DRINKS IN THE MODERN BAR for bartenders will teach you new ways to craft cocktails, basic gardening etiquette, coastal and urban foraging, the importance of seasonality, and the world of bees and beehive management.
Need advice on a more balanced lifestyle?
If you’re looking for some quick tips and tricks for a healthy, happier, more sustainable work life balance, Tim Etherington-Judge’s Healthy Hospo series is the one for you.
Want to elevate your career?
Check out Joe Schofield’s ‘Bartender Admin’ virtual seminars. Exploring important topics from beyond the bar from COMMUNICATION, ORGANISATION and PRESENTATIONS to PROJECT EXECUTION, LEADERSHIP and PERSONAL BRANDING. Joe has you covered.
Looking for entertainment on the go?
If you’re in the mood for some lighthearted fun, then we suggest Words With Will. A conversational-style podcast with several of the world’s best bartenders, operators and brand legends. It brings to life the conversations that would naturally happen over a bar and explores how each guest carved out their individual path in this industry. If that gets you in the mood to listen to podcasts, we have a whole section for that! We bring together our favourite industry podcasts, so you don’t have to go out and find them. Things like ’Bartender at Large’ from award-winning bartender Erick Castro and ‘All In The Industry’ from Shari Bayer of Bayer Public Relations, a podcast dedicated to the behind-the-scenes talent. See all our podcasts here.
