Global Beverage Solutions Helps Two candidates to be the Best in the World!

GBS has just launched a Spanish version of theGBS is delighted to announce that this year it trained the two best candidates in Institute of Brewing and Distilling (IBD) Diploma in Brewing examinations.

The John S Ford Award is awarded by the IBD for the candidate who achieves the best marks having written all three examinations in one year. This year there were two candidates whose marks could not be split: Williams Ozowe, a Brewer from Nigerian Breweries PLC, Nigeria, and Kavir Parthab, a Brewing Technical Trainee at SAB Ltd., South Africa.

Both Williams and Kavir were trained face-to-face by GBS and followed our online training programmes.

This is what Williams Ozowe had to say about the support offered GBS:

“I would like to say a big thank you to your team for contributing immensely to my success in the recently concluded IBD exams. The training offered by your company in no small measure enhanced my Brewing knowledge and test taking skills.

In addition, the wealth of knowledge and experience shared by your facilitators (Andrew and Clive) were second to none. They were always willing to assist and answer all our questions. I must confess, I was greatly inspired to do exceptionally well in order to compensate them for their time and effort.

My sincere wish is that you keep up the good work of training in order to remain the foremost Brewing consulting company in Africa, helping to produce some of the finest talents in Brewing.

Thanks once more for this privilege. I remain grateful for the experience and I dedicate the award to you all.”

And this is the feedback from Kavir Parthab, regarding his experiences with GBS:

“Global Beverage Solutions has helped me prepare in advance for the exams through helpful tutorials and the comprehensive online feedback.  The tutorials, lecture notes and one on one feedback from the course co-ordinators Ian Jones and Clive Belcher helped prepare me months in advance for the IBD examinations. The diploma in brewing III course run by Clive Belcher helped reinforce my knowledge of packaging and engineering. The presentation was exciting with stimulus on all levels (videos, simulations and mock tests).

I can confidently say that both Ian and Clive are highly knowledgeable about the brewing industry and are up to date with their material.

They are excellent mentors and coaches and have really helped me get a step closer to becoming a world class brewer. “

Everyone at GBS passes on our congratulations to Williams and Kavir and wish them all the best for the future!

If GBS can help two young Africans become the best in the world, think how we may be able to help you achieve your goals. Contact us now on to discuss tailor-made options for success in the IBD examinations next year.
