    How can one describe delight?

    Two months have passed since our team has attended the course. The one thing that stood out for all of us was the team spirit). For me personally, it is super important when people do their job professionally and with passion. I especially enjoyed the masterclass with Gregory. It was interesting to observe how he works with cheese.We, do not have the opportunity to visit cheese stores in Europe. Therefore it is essential to host such educational programs as they will definitely affect the quality of the services provided.

    I thank the ProCheese Academy and our management again for the effort that was put into it ! 

    The emotions that I experienced during my participation in the cheesemonger contest were unbelievable! Thanks to your team everything passed smoothly and at the highest level. Such emotions and feelings of fulfillment (which we rarely get to experience).

    I would like to share my impressions from the Cheesemonger course. Firstly, I would like to note that I had a concrete goal when I signed up for the program, and that was to solidify my knowledge about cheese and to find out (learn) how to properly work with this product. Did I find what I was searching for? Of course! After a 3-day training, I was left with maximum satisfaction and full of new knowledge and abilities. After the course, I as a seller- consultant was able to apply everything that I have learned in practice (at work).

    It was much easier for me to make contact with the consumer, due to the fact that I was able to be more confident in delivering information about the product to the person I was selling it to. More importantly, how to store cheese correctly and therefore avoid having a lot of the product written off. I would also like to mention that the atmosphere and energy at the ProCheese Academy was super positive, favorable and targeted at success. 

    A separate thank you to Oksana Chernova for clearly and professionally provided information as well as to everyone that took part in the course. You truly are professionals at your job!
