A little bit of history…

August 21 2017

Virtual PA Co was started in 2001 because I needed the service for myself. I couldn’t afford a whole secretary on my own so I decided to share one.

Family Time Is So Important

There is not an investment wiser than spending quality time with family. My son recently got married and being able to be a part of that is something that nothing can replace.

Kerinder – My Virtual PA

February 19 2013

My challenge is to grow my business by 20% by the end of November 2013 through the art of delegation. I’ve always delegated, it’s why I set up my first business in the first place: I needed a PA and couldn’t afford one without sharing the cost. I’ve always believed there is a value in... [Read More]

Precious Time

February 15 2013

There it was, lying on the mat, that little red envelope with the familiar hand writing, how lovely after all these years, amazing that we still make the effort, never take anything for granted.

In 2001 there wasn’t even a name for what we do, we called it ‘secretarial support for small and growing businesses nationwide’. Not a bad description even today.

Let’s get virtual…

February 29 2012

“If I was setting up again now,” says Rupert, co-founder of a £10m biz, “I’d do it all virtually”. We couldn’t agree more. You get a named Virtual PA, who is accountable for all work done for you but who is backed up by a small team (we recommend no more than two, but it’s... [Read More]
