In January 2019, Amber Staynings set up the hospitality industry’s first – and now largest – outsource sales agency Bums on Seats, offering pubs, bars and restaurants across the UK pre-booked sales audits, industry leading Hospitality sales training, planning, consultancy, and white label sales teams.
“Eating and drinking out is an experience that should be available to all. The most memorable moments of my life have frequently been spent in restaurants and bars with those I love. It is imperative to me, at Bums on Seats, that we always demonstrate integrity, passion, individuality and fun, as well as forging meaningful relationships with all of our clients.”
