Meet the Team

Zahra Al-Shakerchi​

Senior Sales Consultant

Some people choose Hospitality as a career path, but Zahra stumbled into it at the ripe old age of 21 and hasn’t looked back since. 

Starting out as a Sales and Events Executive at a well-known late-night operator, she continued to build her knowledge and experience from leisure venues and fine dining restaurants to gastro pubs and later historical landmarks and museums, her love for hospitality growing stronger with each role she took on. Having both a solution and business-based methodology in her decisions helped her deliver ambitious targets in various roles over the past twelve years. 

Working both at venues and in the catering sector has helped Zahra build a 360 based knowledge in sales, planning, operations and financial forecasting which led her from being a Head of Sales for a large portfolio of restaurants and event venues in the UK to a Senior Sales Consultant and part of the Leadership Team at Bums on Seats.

Joining in May 2022, Zahra has worked with a range of exciting clients from YO! Sushi to Oche and Puttshack, to the launch of King’s House in Chelsea. Focusing on high level consultancy and mentorship, Zahra’s aim is maximising her client’s full potential with strategic sales planning and increasing process efficiency within teams.
