Laura Amos - Winner 2017
Ampersand

In my current role as general manager for the Cafe at the Palace I am responsible for the smooth running of the on-site visitor restaurant alongside running various high profile dinners, events & receptions throughout the year. It is my responsibility to lead a team of up to 20 members of staff to provide a first class experience for each and every one of our 200,000 visitors each year. Short term vision and goal is to further drive the turnover of Café at the Palace until we are in the million pound contract club which I am confident we can achieve in the not too distant future. Longer term I’d like to take a step into the learning and development side of the business as it would give me great job satisfaction to pass on some of the skills and knowledge that I have gained in my career to date in order to help others really grow and develop.
