Educational Seminars and Interactive Classes
Education is key to understanding the Mediterranean Diet and delivering the extraordinary benefits. Whether online or in person, a programme presenting the alchemy of the Mediterranean lifestyle is available as a single event or a series of classes adapted for general or more specialist audiences.
Employee Health and Wellbeing Workshops
Organisations are increasingly understanding the importance of employee wellbeing and the advantages of a healthy workforce. Those within a corporate environment feel valued and nurtured when offered access to high quality advice to maintain fitness and health. Workshops are designed with team building exercises and interactive sessions to ensure the programme is both instructive and enjoyable for all participants.
Supporting events for Trade Associations and Businesses
Trade Associations, countries who depend on agricultural exports and individual businesses involved in all aspects of the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle including food production have a significant opportunity to gain leverage in markets through education of consumers. These consumers are increasingly focused on the importance of health. Education, whether online or through trade or other events, empowers all those involved from "farm to fork" to understand the importance of maximising the understanding of the benefits of Mediterranean products on health. The voice of an independent, international authoritative expert with experience in research, public and patient facing work is immeasurably powerful.
Launch Events and Publicity Campaigns
Keynote speaking, media engagement or online promotion of the Mediterranean Diet can support publicity campaigns or new product launches when consistent with the principles of the lifestyle.
Working with the Media
With considerable experience working with international broadcasters and media outlets please use the contact form for interview and other requests for expert comment on all aspects of the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle as well as subjects related to olive oil.
Working with travel and tourism is an area of increasing interest with programmes related to the alignment of tourism and food already delivered in Spain, Italy and Jordan in addition to experience as a regular guest speaker with Viking Cruises relating travel with the enjoyment of local cuisine and culinary traditions.
Olive Oil Tasting Education
Olive oil tasting seminars are an excellent and fun way to become familiar with the wide range of extra virgin olive oils, their health and sensory profiles, as well as practical guidance on getting the most out of extra virgin olive oil in the kitchen and pairing with different foods. Seminars can be arranged with leading international sommeliers and competition judges as well as acclaimed chefs including Masterchef winners in the UK and abroad.
