I am flexible and work on a, “as and when you need me basis”, for as long as you need me. I can receive work from you via email, fax or snail mail (i.e. Royal Mail Postal services).
I run my own company as a Event/Party Planner, where organisational and planning skills are essential and of the utmost importance. It's not unusual for me to be planning and organising an Awards Dinner in the morning, teaching a Floristry Workshop in the afternoon, meeting with a Bride and Groom to discuss their wedding in the evening, all the while keeping my Virtual P.A. role ticking over by sending out correspondence, typing reports, manuscripts and emails. Despite all the above I am looking to increase my remit, so if you have a project that you think would benefit from my many and varied skills I would love to hear from you.
My services include:
Agreements, Contracts, Correspondence, Emails, Invoices, Mail-
Merge & Mailshots, Manuscripts, Proposals, Reports, Schedules,
Statements, Time-Tables, etc…

Work Experience Summary: My role has really evolved over the last 18+ years in the entertainment industry.
Having been made redundant in 2005 I set up, and am running, my own consultancy company providing entertainment and event management service to clients who have remained loyal to me through my transition from being employed to becoming a Consultant, as well as winning new business on a regular basis. I am a Preferred Supplier to a number of Blue Chip Companies and these are on the increase.
Before starting my own company, for which I am solely responsible, I came from working as Company Secretary for the CEO of a listed company. From being initially employed as his P.A. I became his Executive Assistant wholly responsible for my own client accounts, organising themed events, Team Building Days, sourcing and booking After Dinner and Motivational Speakers, including many international events featuring such acts as Bryan Adams and Lionel Ritchie. I also sourced and booked all the celebrity artistes for the three day RHS Gardens Wisley Music Festival in 2003/4 & 5, as well as The Highclere Castle Music Festival which took place in 2005.
After being given the role of Company Secretary and, as well as keeping all the relevant company documentation, I organised the smooth running of the day to day operation of the office, prepared quotes for clients, auditioned artistes and assisted with general accounting procedures including banking, issuing cheques, of which I was a signatory, which all in all have given me invaluable experience.
As well as the above I am also a part time Lecturer/Tutor for our local Adult Education Authority for which I am currently in my third year studying for my DTLLS Teacher Training Degree with Canterbury Christ Church University. I regularly take classes at the local colleges and Primary Schools and do private Workshops for various companies.
