Cocktails in the Country: “You Really Helped Me Find Clarity”

by Gaz Regan · Monday, April 23rd, 2018 · CitC 2017, CitC Testimonials

“First of all, an unexpected benefit of attending CitC was the great comradery amongst the group. Not only did I learn a great deal from my fellow bartenders, I was also fortunate enough to make legitimate friends with people who I will continue to have conversations with that I know will help improve my level of service as time goes on.

“The principles I’ve taken from the workshop have already come into play for me in both bars that I work at. Recently, I’ve struggled to find focus in two contrasting positions, and you really helped me to find clarity in terms of time & emotional management.

“Meditation has been key for me.  Truthfully, prior to my CitC experience I kind of viewed my idea of meditation as corny. For some reason, when we practiced a ‘conventional’ meditation with you during the workshop, it really hit home with me.

“Accepting and understanding that you will always have to be open to different and new approaches to bartending from making up cocktails to dealing with a difficult guest is definitely key in my idea of becoming a master of service. A master of service is not a graduate of the school of bartending, but rather a bartender who strives and will always strive to put forth effort in learning and executing in providing the best guest experience possible.

“Thank you so much Gaz! I had an amazing time and it was a treat to be able to participate in CitC!”
