Victoria is an invaluable support, a real wing woman for me and my business. Victoria is that unique blend of great energy, professionalism, highly organised, with a compassionate human touch and I’d highly recommend working with her. Thanks Victoria for all your support, you’re a star!

Lisa Spencer-Arnell, CCS

You have been a fabulous asset to the business and have assisted in the growth and development during the period in which we have worked together. The level of support and efficiency you offer really is second to none.

Kelly Taylor – KJ Taylor Consulting

Victoria has the skills to give order to the admin complexities which can frustrate and upset Executives from carrying on with their job. She always has a great practical solution to manage a process and allows you to carry on with your business.

Victoria gives me a seamless service and I feel great knowing she is there whenever I need the speed of resolution of the admin process! Thank you, Victoria!

Don Camilleri – Hospitality & Leisure Concepts

Victoria and I connected on social media and I quickly learned how knowledgeable she is! Her passion is palpable. She also values and fosters knowledge sharing amongst the assistant community.

It was a no-brainer for me to invite her to be a guest on my blog. She ended up writing one of the best articles I have read for those in our profession. It was not only full of quality advice but also written straight from the heart. It generated a lot of traffic (actually my best performing month to date!) and still is one of the top performing articles on my website.

She is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only does she exceed deadlines, but she welcomes feedback and is fabulous at collaborating. She is professional, friendly, and a fantastic communicator. She is also meticulous and efficient (as a blogger who works with many guest writers, it is rare to meet someone who delivers this at this level). I feel so fortunate to have met her.

If you get the chance to work with Victoria in any capacity, I recommend jumping at the chance!

I encountered Victoria whilst she was working as the professional support for a senior and very busy member of the House of Lords.

Her organisation and planning skills matched with a highly tactful and effective communication style mark her out as a rather uniquely talented remote-and-real assistant.

I have been availing myself of Victoria’s brilliant services for quite a while now. Initially I didn’t know how much I would use her services, but almost from the get go it was obvious that her utilisation of a broad range of skills knowledge and experience far exceeded my expectations of what she could do. From the outset Victoria proved herself discreet, efficient and trustworthy, working on some issues that were very sensitive and which were carried out with utmost precision. As our relationship has developed it’s become very clear to me that the support she offers on a myriad range of topics and challenges is completely essential. Whether it’s personal stuff like organising gifts, flowers, dinner – all far too simple to phase her – or intricate business related things she handles them all with aplomb and professionalism and I’m always completely confident that she’ll act in a timely and precise fashion and keep me completely updated whilst actually taking the strain off of me.

The range of things that she has worked on for me has completely surpassed my expectations and I would be loathe to be without her services. By way of recommendation I would say that if there is even one small area of your life that could use a cool calm hand at the tiller then get in touch with her immediately. I can’t speak more highly of anyone else whose services I have used, she’s completely brilliant.

Victoria had been acting as head moderator of one of my Facebook groups for some time so when I wanted support, I already had full confidence in her abilities and knew she was the right person for the job. 

Victoria currently helps with a number of tasks in addition to her head moderator role. She proofreads my newsletters in ConvertKit and blog posts in WordPress, schedules my social media in Hootsuite, manages LinkedIn connection requests, assists with sales and promos, undertakes online research, actions support emails, provides support during Facebook live sessions and provides supports wherever else I might need her. 

My business is very tech-orientated and I love that Victoria picks things up very quickly. She is astute, dedicated, reliable, trustworthy, efficient and a vital part of my business operations. She communicates incredibly well, thinks for me, and has never missed a deadline. 

Some of Victoria’s most valuable time-saving skills however are around content support. Not only does she come up with great ideas for my Facebook groups, emails and blog posts, because she knows my business so well she has the wonderful ability to create the type of content I would write myself. Because I’m so busy Victoria will often craft something for me which I can simply edit to reflect my own opinion and voice. She literally has a great way with words which saves me an unbelievable amount of time and mental energy. 

Victoria is an essential part of my business and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.

For an all-too-brief couple of years, I rediscovered what it is like to have a top-class PA. Efficient, effective, courteous to all she dealt with, and great fun to work with. Lord Lucas - House of Lords/Lucas Publications

It was an absolute pleasure working with Victoria. In every dealing I ever had with her – many of them remote but also face-to-face – she was absolutely on it. She has that rare quality of making what she does look easy. No matter how much pressure she must be under, she never seems to be. She is friendly, unflappable and eminently professional.

I suggest you make the most of her services while you can because when I’m rich I plan to book up all of her time! Charlotte Simpson - Freelance Writer

I can’t thank Victoria enough for the work she did for us. She’s entirely self managing, meticulous and solution oriented. She’s a great communicator and always kept us aware of the progress she was making on her work.

In short she totally delivered for us and exceeded my expectations, freeing me up to spend more time working ‘on’ my business than ‘in’ it.

I’d recommend her at the drop of a hat! Janusz Stabik - Mayfly Media

Victoria is the ultimate, platinum Executive Assistant. She provides superb professional support and is a fantastic addition to any organisation.

She is forward-thinking, details-focused and fastidious at helping business run smoothly. She deals quickly and capably with all aspects of administration from diary management to international group travel to proof-reading, and many more.

She is an enormous help with personal admin too, taking the stress out of all those little things that have to be done but for which there aren’t enough hours in the day.

I wish the world were made of Victorias and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Helen Sewell - Director, Simply Speaking

Victoria is one of those people who, no matter what the problem, will listen calmly, ask a number of pertinent questions, take ownership of the challenge and get on with the job until it has been completed.

Like all good PAs, she is often ahead of me in seeing things I need to complete, people I need to talk to and ensuring I am in the right place at the right time.

I always enjoy working with her as she lightens my admin load, which I hate, and that allows me to focus on my priorities.

A joy to work with. Hugh Stafford-Smith - SABA Consulting

Victoria is the ultimate professional – people still talked about how valuable she was and how they missed working with her years after she had left the organisation.

Victoria always gets the job done. If she says it will be done, it will be. I am careful about recommending people but I have worked with Victoria and I don’t hesitate to recommend her. Geri Moran - www.gerimoran.com

Victoria was parachuted in to support me when I was working as a BITC Business Connector. She very quickly grasped what was required and established strong, sympathetic relationships with all the individuals and organisations involved.

She was enthusiastic, entirely reliable and frequently pro-active, entirely releasing me to concentrate on establishing new connections.

Victoria was a very reassuring presence and a delight to work with at all times. Ian Holden - BITC Business Connector

The CEO assistant role involved the sensible and confidential management of the CEO’s diary, liaison with board members and executives, the administrative preparation of board papers, unfailingly accurate responses to key stakeholders on the CEO’s behalf.

These were all matters that Victoria attended to with great diligence, humour and effectiveness.

Victoria not only managed the role but also, within a very short period, became a highly regarded member of the team, relied on by staff, executives and board members as a diligent, pro-active and intelligent resource whose hallmark was taking the initiative.

Victoria will quickly make herself a valuable and valued employee, whose character will endear her to her colleagues. Rohan Mead - Group Managing Director and CEO, Australian Unity (2007)
