Biography and Testimonials

Biography

I started my Virtual PA business in January 2006 and operate from Surrey.  Although with modern technology location is no longer a prime consideration.  My existing clients are based all over the UK and work across a variety of industries.

Prior to staring my Virtual PA business, I worked  in the advertising and publishing industries for over 10 years as a senior Personal Assistant with the majority of those years spent at one of the largest Advertising Agencies in the UK. I therefore have great experience in managing extremely busy and demanding professional lives. My work ranges from complex diary management to worldwide travel arranging, from making sure a tight schedule is kept on target, to arranging international conferences with delegates from half a dozen countries.

This has taught me the importance of flexilibty, absolute attention to detail, and the need to juggle multiple tasks at any one time in fast paced working environments.  My more recent work for clients, since starting my own Virtual PA business, still requires these skills, but has added extra layers of high technical proficiency for projects that regularly include database management and setting up and managing remote access cloud bases systems

Testimonials

“I had the pleasure of working with Jane for over 7 years in two separate Companies.  She was quite simply the best personal assistant I have had, or could ever hope to work with. She is incredibly bright, well organised, on top of all technology, hard working, always willing to take on responsibilities and 100% loyal. Sadly, having moved to the sticks, she is unable to work with us now. Although there were times when I actually considered moving the Company out to Surrey so she could come back!" Andy Hopkinson - Managing Director Adstream (former Worldwide Director AMVBB)
"Since entrusting vital functions of our business to Jane we have been confident that they are in safe hands. More than a virtual PA, Jane manages our CRM system, our website content, invoicing and credit control. In addition she fulfils an essential role in managing meetings, travel and accommodation. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Once a task has been handed over, Jane takes personal responsibility for its successful completion."
Gwyn Tudor - Director - Contact Innovation Limited
"Jane worked with me as PA for three years and suited my demands for organisational excellence throughout. Proactive, committed and supportive, I always valued her contribution to the big picture. A shrewd operator who managed to get the most out of others, would not hesitate in recommending Jane to anyone who needs a dose of real efficiency to help their business."
Carl Shuck - Former Board Account Director at AMVBBDO
"I have known Jane for several years and I consider her to be a first rate PA. She is proactive, supportive, dedicated and totally trustworthy. Jane has a real talent and understanding of how to pull together presentations and documents under pressure of deadlines without taking her eye off the detail. I would strongly recommend her for anyone who needs to ensure they are always putting their best foot forward."
Helen Calcraft - Managing Director MCBD
