In this episode we talk to, perhaps the most passionate industry professional that I know: the powerhouse and living industry legend, Dean Callan
I have known Dean for a long time and had the pleasure to have him work with us at Behind Bars back in the early days of his career
Since then Dean has travelled the world and made a name for himself as an encyclopedia of knowledge, an absolute firecracker of passion looked up-to by thousands of bartenders around the world
Dean is probably most famous for his role as the global brand ambassador for Monkey Shoulder, a job he left after 6 years with William Grant & Sons, back in October 2016 to focus on his consultancy services and to pursue other passions. He’s also recently become a dad, and is currently juggling a number of projects that he has on the go.
Catching up with Dean is never boring, always fun, and you always come away having learned something new. At least I always do.
If you are aspiring to be a world-class bar professional, or see yourself as a future brand ambassador, then I highly recommend listening Dean’s amazing journey and great advice.
I had such a fantastic time interviewing and catching up with Dean, and I hope you will find it equally inspiring and educational as well.
