Anjali Douglas DipWSET, Tastings and Events Manager, WSET School London

Anjali worked in hospitality while studying her A-Levels, never intending to make a career out of it. She then worked in education for museums and galleries, producing events and festivals to attract diverse audiences. She caught the wine bug five years ago and returned to hospitality, starting her new career in a wine bar, before moving on to become responsible for training hospitality staff and sommeliers for a wine distributor. Now, she teaches Level 1 and 2 Awards in Wines at WSET School London. No matter what industry she is in, Anjali aims to open up conventionally elitist institutions, art forms, and beverages to more.
