What They Say About Me


Kate has been a great asset to our business. She is organised and efficient with a great energy. Her experience and ability means that I have the confidence in her to take on the tasks that free me up to concentrate on my priorities and give me more time with my clients. Her professional and flexible approach has significantly helped to drive the business forward and let me get on with doing what I do best. I have seen a clear increase in cash flow since engaging with her as I am no longer carrying out tasks which are not related to my skillset and are not fee earning. Within just a few weeks she has become integrated into the business and brings ideas and solutions which take her beyond the skills of any PA or office manager I have worked with.

I have had the pleasure of working with Kate for almost a year now. Kate is a fantastic extension to our team. She is very professional, focused and detailed oriented, whilst being extremely personable and a great team player. If you are looking for a VA who can help you with streamlining your day-to-day deliverables in your business, or your personal life, and manage this in a professional and confidential capacity, I highly recommend Kate

Kate’s Complete PA service met the precise need we had. She is providing a highly professional and responsive support to senior executives, with a fantastic attitude and energy. She is extremely organised and doesn’t miss a trick. Kate’s flexible and efficient approach means that you really get value for money - paying just for the time and support you need. Unlike with traditional employment contracts, you don’t have to spend a long time figuring out how many hours you think you’ll need. You can get started with Kate and then flex as you need to.I couldn’t be more delighted with the service she is providing. I will continue to ask her for support and recommend her to others.

Gabby Fleming
Talent Consultant and Leadership Coach

Kate was my Personal Assistant for 18 months.  Over the years I have had a number of PAs, many extremely good but Kate was exceptional.  She has a delightful manner, everyone warms to her and she is able to deal with challenging personnel issues brilliantly well.  She is extremely organised, diligent and able to juggle more balls than you'd think possible.  She is innovative and creative and always looks to find better solutions to problems and ensure I was always on the front foot.  Immensely capable, instantly likeable and a great team member, I can't recommend her highly enough.

Helen Hyde 

Personnel Director Waitrose 2013-18 and Acting Partners' Counsellor, John Lewis Partnership 2018 onwards

Kate was efficient, organised, proactive, a pleasure to work with. During the 3 years she worked as my PA she fulfilled her role comprehensively taking control of my Diary/Agenda, Conference Management Planning, Travel Organisation, Customer Service follow up. Whilst this was the core of the role, carried out extremely effectively. Kate's real value was her ability to anticipate what was required before it was asked for and once given an objective develop and shape it beyond expectations. This made her indispensable! I am sure anyone using this service will not be disappointed!
