Natalie Mainwaring discovered a passion for hospitality while working as a waitress while studying for a law degree.
Time spent as an events and sales co-ordinator at Las Iguanas in Cardiff led to a move to London in 2007 to join Chester Boyd as an event coordinator. She was soon promoted to sales executive, in which role she drove 20%-plus increases in sales of Christmas packages.
In 2009 Mainwaring became business development manager at Chester Boyd, and was instrumental in the creation of its offshoot, It's The Agency. Today, she is responsible for revenues of well over £5m.
