ABOUT ME: 

Up to the present time, I have had a really enjoyable career.  I have worked with, and for, some remarkable people who have seen my potential and been only too happy to help me develop my skill base; whilst helping their company become more successful.  I have frequently been thrown in at the deep end only to find that when the project is finished, I am congratulated for a job well done.

My career commenced working as a PA for a Senior Partner at a large Solicitors office.  I left to start my business, retailing football souvenirs across the globe.  After the Heysel stadium riots, I decided to change my career path.

My occupation has involved office management with responsibility for business operations and administration plus the management of staff.   I have worked as a Recruitment and Training manager for a large training company, moving to the position of the Quality manager responsible for the design and development of policies and procedures, finally moving to become the HR manager.  Latterly working with a Fire Safety company where I co-ordinated the day to day administration and operations as operations manager.  This job also included a lot of interface with customers offering advice and guidance. 

Such history has lead to the development of diverse business and administration skills.  It has also aided me to prioritise my time, reach deadlines, and give satisfaction.  All this experience allows me to offer a high quality, professional Virtual PA service designed to meet your needs.

Believe it or believe it not, I love administration and organisation.  I gain real motivation being organised and efficient.  If/when requested, I have the ability to see ways to organise or change systems making them more cost-effective and productive.  I work behind the scenes helping you develop your business and achieve your aspirations.

As conceited as it may sound, I believe once you use my service you will wonder how you managed without me.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

A person who exceeds your expectations - loyal, competent and diligent.

I have known Barbara for many years. Her forte is using her analytical mind and attention to detail to put things into a logical sequence. Barbara is someone who has the ability to see into the heart of a problem. She not only sees the solution but, is also well capable of planning the route through to the solution. This was amply demonstrated when we were struggling to build a set of policies and procedures to comply and gain our Quality Standards. It was only when Barbara took over and developed both the policies and procedures that we eventually sailed through our assessment with flying colours. I would have no hesitation in recommending Barbara; she would be an asset to your business.
