I give my clients peace of mind that their essential tasks are being completed regardless of whether they are working with clients, marketing their business, networking or just spending time with their family. Once the weight has been lifted off their shoulders they begin to feel excited again about their business and its possibilities. I treat each business as if it were my business, knowing more about my client and their business goals allows me to support them fully and to the best of my ability.

“……Her tenacity is borne not only on strong organisational skills but a desire to see effect…..”

Chris has not only saved me a great deal of time by taking on the administrative burden that befits all micro businesses but also added real value in a number of areas of Lanthorn development. Her tenacity is borne not only on strong organisational skills but a desire to see effect. This pragmatism is underpinned by a strong and consistently applied set of values. Chris has used her initiative and internet/comms skills to discover contacts, channels and business intelligence which have all contributed to raising Lanthorn’s profile in the market place and developing business. Chris is diligent, hard working and effective – I have no reservation in strongly recommending her not only as a virtual PA but also a core team member of any development team. She continues to be a pleasure to work with – determined but not intrusive, open yet confidential
