Carling Partnership at the IBD Younger Members Event – Sensory Seminar and Career Surgery

IBD LogoJulie Carling and Tricia Tappin are delighted to announce that they will be participating in the programme on offer at the IBD Younger Members Career Surgery Event that will take place at the IBD headquarters in London on Thursday 23rd April. The event has been set up to help younger members of the IBD to carve their path in the drinks industry, this is a day that is equally suited to anyone looking to enter the drinks industry or to change direction within the industry.

This free event is made possible thanks to sponsorships from the likes of The Carling Partnership. Kicking off at 10.30am with coffee and the chance to mingle, there will be a range of Career Surgery meetings scheduled that will take place between 11.00am and 1.45pm. These Career Surgery meetings are an excellent way for IBD Younger members to obtain free and impartial career advice and guidance from drinks industry experts. The sessions are planned in 15-minute blocks and enable attendees to take drinks industry career questions directly on a one to one basis to the movers and shakers in the industry.

The buffet lunch, which is scheduled for 1.00pm and is sponsored by The Carling Partnership, is yet another great opportunity to mix with industry experts and people with their finger on the pulse of the job vacancies in the drinks industry. And although the programme suggests that the Career Surgery meetings might finish at 1.00pm, they will in fact continue during the lunch period in order to meet demand. Whilst there are likely to be some spaces left on the day, if you’d like to make sure you have your place secured in advance, you should email ahead of the event.

The afternoon part of this event is dedicated to a Sensory Seminar and will see interactions from Campden BRi, FlavorActiv, Greene King and The Beer Academy. The topics on the agenda are:

ü  The theory of sensory analysis

ü  Practical sensory session

ü  Sensory QC and QA in the workplace

ü  and an Introduction to Beer Styles

So it’s certain that this programme will leave you with lots of food for thought on this important subject as well as giving you direct insight into the up to date thinking, which should prove really helpful if you are likely to face a discussion about Sensory Analysis in an interview situation. The event is scheduled to finish around 4.00pm and should prove to be an interesting and stimulating day for participants and presenters alike.

We truly hope to see you there, and don’t forget to email Jane Sinton to fix a time for your Career Surgery Meeting!
