“I contacted Joanne as she had provided me with virtual business support in the past.  We were looking mainly for someone to help with scheduling meetings and being the point of contact for sales leads.  Joanne appointed one of her team, Justine, to help us, and she has been assisting with diary management and client contact/recontact.   This has helped us to increase the number of appointments and given us back some ‘thinking time’.  

I’d recommend that any business owner starts with a few hours and proportionally invests in support”

“Since the moment I had my first meeting with Jo I felt I was in a really safe pair of hands. Her experience, strategic logic and incredible organisation has helped me to grow my 3 creative businesses enormously. She has an incredible talent for being able to quickly diagnose an issue and come up with a detailed plan of how to resolve them & has effortlessly put systems in place in my business which leave me free to do what I do best creatively.

The best decision I ever made was to ask for her help!”

Jo is one of the most focused and hard-working individuals I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail is second to none. She is an extremely capable and effective Business Manager, working to a high standard in all that she achieves. She provides the support and guidance required and is always willing to go that extra mile to achieve the objectives set.

“Focussed and hard-working”
Joanne was and still is one of the most consummate professionals to work with and for. Her dedication to her work life is superb, her ethics are of the highest standard and she always applies her much admired skill set in each and every task she sets her mind to thereby ensuring 150% every time and a satisfactory conclusion for her employer. I would have no hesitation in recommending Joanne for her work, her character and her dedication.

Jo was a pleasure to work with. A great work ethic and a willingness to adopt the company procedures as well as develop her own ideas. I would recommend Jo as an excellent choice for any team.

Chris Jellard, Project Lead Quality Control at Grant Thornton UK LLP (formerly of Fulfords Estate Agents)

“A great work ethic”
Joanne has a rare ability to combine being highly effective and efficient whilst also building excellent relations with her team. She made fundamental improvements to the department, directly improving the bottom line within a year of joining whilst also improving long term issues such as morale and retention by investing in training and development within the team. If I started my own company, she would be one of the first people I’d want to recruit.

“One of the first people I’d want to recruit”

Joanne is a professional, highly efficient and valued member of staff. She has supported the senior management team and managed the Director level admin team. I would be happy to recommend her.
