Biography of Speakers:

Ms. Anna Tam has a few identities, that’s why she is busy: a boutique wines importer, marketing solution provider, food and wine writer, WSET course tutor and wine judge for hotel wine sommelier cup, and she is not sure if she will take more roles in the future. Enjoying her happy hectic life and taking the WSET Diploma course, she never forgets to dance like there’s no tomorrow and save the water like there’s no tomorrow too. Pay attention to your radio when you drive, you may hear her voice sharing her opinions on wines and travelling. Take a look at the Food and Beverages magazines when you are in hotel lobby, you may find her articles introducing wine and cheese stories and pairing techniques.

Being a mysterious Scorpio, Mr. Tank Tan is considered to be the hottest sommelier in town even he drinks 2 cans of beers every night before he sleeps. He is a holder of Wine and Spirit Education Trust Advance Certificate and Court of Master Sommeliers. This young  man currently works as a hotel sommelier and restaurant manager at Westin Shenzhen. Before he joins the Starwood group, he spent 6 years in Shangri-la Hotel Ningbo. If you would like to hang out with Tank, remember to update your google map and GPS, since it is his daily routine to get lost no matter where he is. Surprisingly, he never gets lost in the world of wine aromas. If you would like to see his wild side, give him Pu’er tea and take him to the dance floor. If you would like to see a charming gentleman, go to his restaurant and order a glass of wine, you will be definitely impressed by his perfect serving skills and smart advice on food and wine pairing.
