In the Seasoned Hotseat: Leeanne

Leeanne Beton, Sales Manager. 

We’ve sat our very own Leeanne down in the fiery Seasoned Hotseat to find out a little bit more about her!

Right Leeanne, let’s start off nice and easy. What’s the toughest dish you can make well?
Well, I wouldn’t say I’m the most skilled in the kitchen but there’s one thing I can say that I’m awesome at making, and that’s a mean seafood paella!

Foodie hat on. Where’s your favourite place to eat in London and why?
There’s so many to choose from! It’s London after all, but let’s go with La Bodega Negra. It’s the whole package, delicious food, great cocktails and the best atmosphere!

What made you get into the events industry?
There wasn’t any one thing in particular, I fell into it slightly. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do after college so read a lot of University prospectuses and Events Management stood out! It covered a lot of interesting and varied topics so I thought I would give it a go, luckily I loved it and have never looked back.

What would you say is your least favourite thing to do?
I don’t even need to think twice, it’s got to be ironing. I’ll do anything to avoid it.

If you could invite any two people to dinner to enjoy your signature seafood paella, who would it be?
This is a very tough one… I’d say Graham Norton, purely for comedic value and Louis Theroux as he must be so interesting! Can you imagine the endless amounts of weird and wonderful stories he would have to tell?

What Netflix/TV series are you currently hooked on?
At the moment it’s juggling Bloodline and Stranger Things. I just can’t get enough of either of them.

 What is your hidden talent?
Gymnastics. I was a gymnast for around 10 years when I was younger and have managed to keep some of the skills!

Pineapple pizza… yes or no?
YES! A resounding yes! It might be hard winning the rest of the team over but hey, it deserves to be on pizza.
