Anita Shaw, Virtual Personal Assistant.
Fittingly, Anita demonstrated almost all of her range of skills and expertise with a very polished professional presentation. She looked elegant and poised as she delivered a concise overview of her skills set and experiences.
I had the pleasure of a 1:2:1 with Anita earlier. She shared with me her work experiences and her passion for acting in the theatre, television and film. Anita recently appeared in the stage production Charlotte Bronte, Blackburn.
It is little wonder, that her presentation was smooth, flowing and engaging whilst retaining a personable touch. Dare say it was a virtuoso performance, without detracting from her honest and genuine intent to deliver a great professional service. I sensed this during our 1:2:1 and the business spotlight opportunity. In addition to the performing arts, Anita also crafts jewellery which she retails from a local store.
Most people do not realise how much of their acquired skills and experience are transferable to other areas of interest, trade or commerce however, Anita clearly understand and embraces this.
She was able to present case studies that demonstrated her value to business owners and executives who need to be freed up of activities – and not just administrative tasks – to allow them time to work ON their business and not IN their business. Running her own business has enabled Anita to impart her experience in areas such as setting goals and objective, planning for growth and expansion, maintaining personal and business relationships, the sort of things many entrepreneur ‘don’t have time to focus on’ because they are to busy.
You might describe Anita as a Business Advisor, Personal Coach and shopper who is hands on as well. Her paper qualifications and real life experiences certainly support the practical applications she offers.
Anita and I are members in common of one networking group. We also on occasions meet at other open groups and I was privileged to be her guest at her second group on two occasions. She is consistently professional and efficient. She takes copious notes at events and always follows up any actions she has committed to. If you feel you are to busy or performing tasks below your pay grade then you need to talk to Anita. I would recommend that you call her sooner rather than later or you may have to settle for her PA!
