Work Experience Summary: Finesse Services from April 2008 to Present
After working for a number of years as a PA and Marketing Manager, I decided to set up a business offering support to businesses who did not have a specific marketing/PA support person or who needed to outsource their work on an adhoc basis. The benefits to businesses are that they have no employee costs to pay, no high agency costs and companies only pay for what they use. I cover a wide range of services from PA support, including admin through to marketing services such as production of collateral and websites and finally event management services for in-house seminars, external functions or exhibitions. Clients include Redcliffe Catering, ISG technology, Calteq Telecommunications, local charities. I provide full PA/Event Management/Marketing to all clients. I have also spent the last two years raising money for various charities by way of organising black tie corporate events including auctions, raffles and sporting events.

This included organisation of events, call out days and seminars, together with the production of all collateral, press releases, updates to the Intranet and Internet, liaising with the design agency, PR agency and any publications relevant to our business. I was in constant negotiations with partners which resulted in marketing funds being granted to the business for marketing activity. All activity and lead generation plans were submitted on a monthly basis to the Board. My role as PA included diary managed, booking of external and internal meetings, liaising with the entire division on the MDâï¿½ï¿½s behalf.
