Conferences & Festivals

Planning a conference, festival or special event? Being Tea workshops are available for booking nearly anywhere in the world. Traveling is a deeply connected part of my work, and this very much includes conferences and festivals.

Regular events in the U.S. where you can take workshops with me include the Northwest Tea Festival (supporter of Being Tea for 12 years!), World Tea Expo and the Midwest Tea Festival. Most popularly requested topics include professional cupping workshops, tea brewing labs, matcha preparation, cold brew and tea beverages, and tea meditation.

I’m trying more cities on my regular circuit every year – get in touch if you’d like to learn about workshops available for your event!

Train the Trainer

In Being Tea’s Train the Trainer workshops, students learn how to transfer their knowledge of tea into a living educational program – one that sustainably supports business growth, career path development, original creativity and genuine love of learning. This may be just to have the ability to teach a basic Tea 101 course, or something more complex such as mentoring participants over the long term. Ideal for staff trainers, managers, and senior leads, as well as for businesses with high turnover who need in-house support for ongoing training needs.

Train the Trainer leads clients toward self-empowerment in their knowledge, able to lead and inspire their staff in the way that makes sense for their operational needs.

All teacher training courses are inclusive and designed to support trainees who self-identify at any point along introversion/extroversion. There are none of the typical public speaking drills in this program! My training style supports full sensory learning experiences. Courses are interactive in nature and include live teach-back exercises for trainees to their class peers. All courses are supportive of your own personality and self-expression, designed to allow your natural training leader to come through.
