Meet the sales team at ROSL

Our Royal Over-Seas League venue is the May venue of the month and what a perfect opportunity to introduce you to our dedicated and hardworking ROSL sales team!

Some of you may have already had the pleasure of speaking or emailing with these lovely ladies, but if you haven’t then certainly get in touch and let them help you create the perfect event at the Royal Over-Seas League.

A real melting pot of nationalities and personalities, our sales team at ROSL is lead by Conference and Banqueting Sales Manager, Patricia Paixao – Portimão, Portugal

Patricia is mother goose within the office – leading her team with a firm but caring hand and great skill in developing the whole team.

Growing up in Portugal, Patricia learnt to cook in her grandmother’s kitchen and always spreads this passion to the group by having treats delivered to the office on a (very) regular basis.

Patricia started her events career in hotels and quickly worked her way up in sales roles in a number of fantastic London venues, finally finding her home at The Royal Over-Seas League.

When she’s not in the office, her two dogs Chubbs and Stanley get the rest of her attention; they’re her two babies.  Patricia may be slight in stature but when we say she’s the archetypal passionate Mediterranean then we’re not exaggerating – her personality is certainly larger than life!

If you want someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of events then Patricia is your gal.


Our Assistant Conference and Banqueting Sales Manager, Tara Fenner – Eastbourne

Tara is originally from Eastbourne and moved to London in 2007 to study Art Management.  She was successful after graduating and began working for Merlin Entertainments where she coordinated events across some of the UK’s greatest tourist attractions. After her time with Merlin she then went on to create corporate events at ZSL London Zoo before joining the Graysons Venues Team at the stunning Royal Over-Seas League.

Tara is very bubbly and has a very fun personality which is why she has such a passion for unique venues and creating amazing events! When she is not planning events, Tara spends her time supporting her favourite football team and during summer months she can usually be found at a music festival!

Tara is our Wedding guru and she always goes the extra mile to make sure the Bride and Groom have the perfect day. Tara is our little ray of sunshine and the office peace-maker.

Tara will also be at our upcoming Wedding Open Evening on Monday 14 May, 6pm-8pm – so do say hello.


Our Sales and Events Coordinator, Demi Brotherton – London

Demi is our fresh pea in the office… and when we say Tara is bubbly well, Demi is the whole magnum of bubbly and extremely funny! Demi is a Londoner with her roots in Fulham and now living in trendy Notting Hill.

Demi is spoiled rotten as she is the only child however if you ever want to find her she will be with her four-legged brother Tim in the park. She used to play for Fulham girls football team and she is a Chelsea fan. She loves watching movies and drawing.

Demi may be our baby in the office but she makes up for it in working very hard, always seeking to know more and helping in any way she can. She loves making her clients happy and ensuring all of their events go well.

If Demi could describe herself in one sentence it would be “I am just a happy person who loves food”


Our Sales and Events Coordinator, Rumbie Karumazondo – Zimbabwe

Rumbie was born in the southern hemisphere of Africa, Zimbabwe and is no stranger to taking the lead, being the first born out of four siblings. Having travelled from Zimbabwe to San Francisco to England as a child, Rumbie is now settled and loving the UK.

Rumbie is our rock in the office, she is very determined and headstrong.  Rumbie values family and friends and loves spending her time with them. Rumbie always finds time to read and cook and although she was a tomboy as a child, nothing makes her happier than receiving flowers.

Rumbie’s comes from a family of health professionals but it was working for her neighbour’s wedding planning company that cemented her love with Hospitality, completing her Masters in International Hospitality and Hotel Management this year. From organising charity events to private parties and Weddings, Rumbie is a hands-on worker who is always there for her clients.

Rumbie only likes pretty drinks, is a high achiever, has a gorgeous daughter who keeps her grounded and she is very open and honest with her clients.
