Ed was one of Sopexa’s educators on French wine and cheese. He continues to deliver presentations on behalf of the Italian Trade Commission and various food/wine consortiums – both locally and regionally. Ed has guest lectured regionally for the California Wine Institute and the US Department of Agriculture, at the Singapore Polytechnic, the Human Resources Institute, the University of Western Sydney, the Singapore Management University as well as HK University (Wine MBA). Topics range from wine portfolio management and wine marketing to wine production and wine sensory evaluation.

You can get Ed to customise your event. Not all of Ed’s talks are academic. Some clients prefer an entertaining evening and Ed has spoken on subjects such as:

Wine blur, wine snob or wine lover?

Passing off as a connoisseur of olive oil

Lethal weapon – durians, chocolate and/or cognac?

Here are some recent (2015) comments on the talks
“The guests loved your presentation, as it was not only educational but also had good humour!”
