You know how it is.. You’re constantly on the road, on a train, in the air.. You can’t pick up the phone, you’re spending all your time organising travel and accommodation and frankly, you don’t even know what timezone you’re in any more. Dragging a PA around with you is costly and impractical, but there is an alternative;
Luckily a Virtual Assistant can do all of the odd jobs you don’t have time for including:
1. Call answering
You can divert your calls to your virtual assistant when you’re travelling or in meetings so there’s no need to worry about missing enquiries.
2. Diary management
A virtual assistant can manage your diary by arranging and booking all your meetings!
3. Email management
Trawling through the junk and categorising your mail can be a big drain on your time. A virtual assistant can deal with the spam, prioritise your emails and make sure that anything urgent gets dealt with swiftly.
4. Travel & accommodation
Booking your travel and accommodation can be a bit of a headache. With a virtual assistant, you won’t have to worry about a thing -just turning up!
5. Event management
Need to book a venue? A caterer? Invite guests? A virtual assistant can do all of this and more. We’ve even written a blog about it!
