Client Testimonials

  • City Pub Company 2020 - 2021

    “We have worked with TASN since the start of 2020. TASN were instrumental in establishing our central sales division and provide ongoing support as the first line of contact to our incoming enquiry base, through our website, emails and telephone. They have helped us to manage the interface between our operating systems, including enquiry management for tables, areas, private spaces and hotel rooms, across our diverse venue base. TASN’s expertise in the area of pre-booked sales has been invaluable to our business over the last 18 months, and their team are always knowledgeable and professional." - Laura Carr, Sales Director

  • Novus Leisure 2008 – 2016

    “I founded Novus Leisure (Bars, restaurants and Nightclubs mainly in London west end and city but also Tiger Tiger brand regionally) with PE backing in 2005 and it was a regular ‘walk in’ retail/ hospitality business. The strategy was to turn it into a ‘pre – booked’ events business via two web sites (latenightlondon.com and TigerTiger.com) and experimentally using a sales force. The product was hiring out private rooms and ‘cool spaces’ (up to 2000+ capacity) for product launches, business events and functions (B2B) and also more regular ‘night out parties and functions’ (B2C). Contracts could be up to £100k but more normally £20 - £50k for conferences and big events). In year 2008 ‘pre-booked sales’ accounted for 10% of revenues by 2012 it had hit 60% Rupert was central to the success of Novus and he built the team from scratch and ended up with 140 strong sales force. He never once disappointed and with his skills we created a much-copied model in the sector. I sold the business to another set of PE funds in 2012 for £120m and the value creation all came from the growth in pre – booked sales." - Steve Richards, CEO

  • The Big Table Group 2018 - 2020

    "TASN achieved significant sales growth within their two years’ running the central sales operation within Big Table Group.  They built a solid, high-performing, well-respected sales team with clear strategy, structure, objectives and processes.  Most importantly, the team has delivered exceptional growth – more than doubling pre-booked sales within their tenure." - James Spragg, CEO

  • True North Brew Co.

    “After reviewing my sales team and losing some members I knew it was time to refresh the way my sales team worked. Rupert reviewed the sales team and identified what needed to be done to change how the department ran, how it could be more effective and improved. I took on board his advice, he helped me recruit staff after we came out of the pandemic. We implemented Collins across the estate on their recommendation and that too has transformed how we manage Pre-booked sales. It has definitely made a big difference to the amount of sales and how I run my business. He continues to provide ongoing support. I would highly recommend him for small to medium and large hospitality groups that run a number of sites.” - K S Yeardley, Founder and Owner

Candidate Testimonials

  • Pascaline Millar Client Services Manager

    “I started talking to TASN whilst still traveling around Asia and South America. They began looking for roles for me and lined up interviews for me upon my return. Everything went really smoothly and within two weeks I had secured my position of Client Services Manager, with Miroma International!”

  • Juan Pazos-Ramirez Multi Site General Manager

    “Dealing with TASN was extremely easy and a quick interview turnaround saw me appointed as General Manager for Salvador & Amanda, one of the flagships venue within the Breakfast Group. One successful year later and I’ve now been promoted to multi-venue General Manager – so onwards and upwards!”

  • Hannah Manning Head of Sales

    “Having lived & worked in Australia for 6 years, I thought it might be difficult jumping straight into a senior role back in the UK. A friend of mine recommended TASN to me, as they knew there were a variety of roles available throughout the UK that may be of interest. We held the first interviews whilst still in Oz, then secured the role of Head of Sales, North, for Casual Dining Group, within a week of me being back! No stress at all, and overall, a fantastic process from start to finish!”

  • Alex Perego Head of Sales and Marketing

    “Knowing that TASN are really well connected within London, they were my first port of call when I was looking for a new senior management role in a hospitality group. After meeting The Breakfast Group, I was appointed as Head of Sales and Marketing across their 7 venues, and over the last year have developed both departments (as well as growing the sales figures!), so it’s been a great opportunity for me.”

  • Meghann Madine Sales & Events Manager

    “Having worked in various venue-based sales roles over the last couple of years, I was looking for the next step up. The role at Belgo was as a multi-site Sales & Events Manager, across all six of their venues, so this gave me the challenge I needed. TASN supported me all the way through the recruitment process and now I’m loving leading the sales team in Belgo!”

  • Isabelle Denison Sales & Events Manager

    “When looking for my next role in hospitality, it was really important to me that it had to be the right venue, not just any venue. So, I was excited when TASN connected me to ETM, a company that really cares about its food and drinks offering– and even more delighted to accept the role of Sales & Events Manager, for one of their newest, most beautiful sites, Greenwood!”
