The Founder of Bums on Seats bares all!

Life experience and guts, both come in handy in the Hospitality sector. Come and involve yourself in a short informal chat on why and how Amber got her bum off a seat to form Bums on Seats. Listen to a honest account of a 20 year career and why starting your own business is only a good idea! 

Although only 34 years old, Amber has already packed a lifetime of experience and individuality into her working, social, and family life. Even setting aside her wealth of knowledge and accumulated skill derived from the hospitality sector, Amber has impressed with her warm and generous personality, winning over many of the main players in a competitive sector which continues to benefit from her vision, energy, and passion.

 Amber started in the industry as a 13 year old waitress (thankfully not in a cocktail bar) and has taken many leaps of faith since then in the sales and business development arena. Brand experience includes Diageo, Tate & Lyle, Greggs, Drake & Morgan, Novus Leisure, Deltic Group, Casual Dining Group, Head of Steam and Carluccio’s.

In January 2019, after identifying a gap in the market for a specialist sales and local marketing agency. Bums on Seats was created, purely focused on working alongside bars, restaurants and clubs to derive the best strategy that will secure an increase in pre-booked sales (or bums on seats). In a matter of months Bums on Seats is already making a considerable impact on business profitability across the sector through new ways of looking at business development, training, motivation of sales teams, up-skilling operations staff and exploiting changes in social networking streams.

Amber is worth seeking out. She will tell you about her new venture (and why Bums Off Seats is equally as important). The thing you will also get to hear about is Amber’s vision and often unique insight which will drive innovation in practice. Amber will tell you the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth…
