“Justin represents real wine, with real meaning, produced by real people from a real place – a rare commodity in the wine trade nowadays
I enjoyed working with Justin for the UK’s leading supermarket during which he spearheaded the greatest market-growth of any UK supermarket, in recent memory.
The difference with Justin is he puts the wine buying decision in the hands of the consumer, focussing on the long-term consumer engagement and enjoyment rather than a superficial short-term win.
He is a slightly zany, slightly unusual person but one of the most genuine wine trade individuals on the planet. Tap in to his brain and wealth of experience if you want to change your business model, rather than just ‘optimise’ what you are already doing.
Producer, buyer, both bricks and clicks retailer, blogger, professional taster; Justin has a lot of bases covered.
If you’re employing a consultant and looking for a breath of fresh air, a new vision and aren’t afraid to have convention challenged, then look no further.”
“Justin was an key member of our Sponsorship and Marketing Committee from the outset. He brought great ideas, positivity and energy, and an amazing diversity of contacts which really helped to step forward our attempts to hit (and eventually considerably exceed) both our sponsorship, and our ticket sales targets.
He was, throughout, a pleasure to work with – proactive, efficient and engaging, and the panel session that he chaired on how we should market Cool Climate wines was one of the highlights of the Symposium.”
