John made a huge impression on his first corporate gig as a sommelier.  In November 2008 he gave an hour long wine review and skill program to several flight attendants for a large private jet corporation.  Here are the flight trainer’s comments:

It is with great pride that I recommend the services of John Bannon as a Sommelier. A few months ago I had contracted Mr. Bannon to assist in educating some of my company’s employees on the wines that we provide to our high-profile clients. I was very impressed with Mr. Bannon’s thorough research on the lists of wines that I had provided him. When he had conducted a wine tasting, he presented every attendee a written overview of where each wine was produced, price range, and some attributes of the wines. Several people who had attended the wine tasting commented that they really enjoyed the experience, as well as Mr. Bannon’s knowledge on the subject matter. Again, it is with great pleasure that I endorse the service, knowledge, and professionalism of Mr. John Bannon as a Sommelier.
