In this episode we have Jacob Briars the global advocacy director for Bacardi, and one of the most well liked and highly respected bar professionals in the world.
Although originally from NZ, Jacob is currently based out of the U.S, but managed to find some time to pop into our Ananas office on a recent visit to Australia.
There is no doubt that Jacob is one of the most well-travelled and well spoken, not too mention one of the most humble professionals in our industry, and I would have loved to keep this chat going for many hours.
For anyone aspiring to one day become a brand ambassador, or to just be awesome at your job, this podcast comes highly recommended. Jacob does after all count the 2013 gong for Best International Brand Ambassador at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirit Awards amongst his many awards and accolades.
