A Little about me
I am a wife, mum of 2 young children and business owner, so being organised is essential to keeping my life and home running as efficiently as possible!
These indispensable key skills were garnerered in my professional, decade long career as an Office and Events Manager.
I have an undergraduate degree with a BA (Hons) in Spanish. Whilst working full-time and also organising my wedding, I earned my Masters in Urban Regeneration.
I worked in the City of London for a number of large charities. As an Office Manager, I needed to be highly organised in the general management and running of the entire main office building. I was responsible for keeping the building and office space aesthetically presentable and ensuring that the organisation was adherent to and compliant with all Health & Safety legislation. I also undertook several large office moves, including assisting with the office moves of our subsidiary offices. I would book and liaise with the professional movers, assist with the packing and unpacking of furniture, office equipment, filing systems and general stationery etc.
As an Events Manager, I was responsible for arranging all quarterly staff team away days, symposiums and seminar events. I booked the conference facilities, accommodation, arranged travel for staff and speakers, and ensured all the catering requirements were organised. In addition, I successfully supported the senior management team in organising three separate annual conferences for over 500 delegates. This would include booking the main conference facilities, staff accommodation, and arranging all staff travel; liaising with caterers and other external suppliers.
I also provided high-level administrative support to a number of senior management teams by comprehensively and exclusively managing their diaries. A number of my daily duties would include: arranging meetings (internally, nationally and internationally) and providing relevant information packs; booking travel, accommodation, meeting venues etc. I would also assist with the Director’s communications, including drafting and typing up correspondence, emails and formatting reports. I am more than happy to provide a copy of my C.V. and references on request.
After having our second child, we escaped London and moved to the beautiful County of Suffolk. During those first years in Suffolk, I volunteered within a variety of local children based organisations to meet other mums and to be able to support my local community. I became the Chairperson for the preschool in my village. I performed that role for several years, and I was responsible for ensuring that each meeting was planned effectively, conducted according to the constitution and regularly organised fundraising events. I also volunteered once a week at the local toddler group.
Now that my children are in full-time education, I have the commitment and flexibility to assist and support my clients in decluttering and organising their lives, homes and office space.
