Last Chance to Join the Guild’s Online Seminar with Paul Nunny tomorrow – New topics covered

The Guild is pleased to offer a broad range of events and trainings for our members. While our regular training courses and events have been suspended until further notice, we plan to run some briefer online seminars in the coming weeks.

Online Seminar | From Founding to Crowd-Funding with Guild Treasurer Paul Nunny

Wednesday, 13th May from 8 – 9pm BST

Online via Zoom

Join Guild Treasurer Paul Nunny for a seminar on his learnings from founding his latest business, to financing it.  Director of Cask Marque, Paul recently set up a sister company, Stay in a Pub, and completed a successful £750K crowdfunding exercise. He’ll share learnings from his experience and take your questions.

In light of current developments, Paul will also speak about:

  • How to reopen a pub after a long close down (re: beer & cellar)
  • Do pubs need a kite mark to show they are Covid Secure and instil confidence in consumers to once again visit them?
  • Making pub accommodation a third income stream for pubs

To RSVP, email and you will be provided with the Zoom link for the meeting. Please note we will be limiting the seminar to 25 members.


Online Social | Get to know your fellow Guild Members

Wednesday, 20th May from 8 – 9pm BST

Online via Zoom

Guild Secretary Natalya Watson will host an online social for Guild members. You’ll be able to introduce yourself, share what you’ve been working on during lockdown, and get to know your fellow members better over a beer.

To RSVP, email and you will be provided with the Zoom link. Please note we will be limiting the social to 25 members.


Future seminars:

Are you an experienced member willing to volunteer an hour of your time to share your insight on blogging, editing, writing press releases, podcasting, photography, beer judging or tasting or any other relevant skillset to our members?

Please contact Guild Chair Pete ( or Guild Secretary Natalya ( with your interest and we’ll schedule you in.

In normal circumstances, the Guild pays standard going rate to tutors and presenters and we’d never ask Guild members to work for free, but in this instance, we are asking for members to volunteer their time, if able, to share their skills with other members.

Any questions, please contact
