MEET THE TEAM

It is my pleasure to work alongside some equally brilliant Virtual Assistants who I proudly call my 'team'. 

I have handpicked some of the best VAs that I've met along my path as a business owner to fly the flag for Exec Support Solutions and expand our offering. 

With a team of VAs at your service, you will never be without support and between us, we can tackle anything you throw at us.

Deborah Snell

Deborah is proactive, a problem-solver and absolutely loves organising. Deborah has held roles as PA to executive-level directors and has closely supported business leaders in the day-to-day running of their companies whilst contributing to their strategic planning activities.

 

In her own words, 'I adore what I do and my mission is helping other entrepreneurs feel the same way about their business, giving them time to get on with what they enjoy the most.'
 

Deborah has experience in the following systems /software: 

  • Adobe (Photoshop, Acrobat)

  • Canva 

  • Doodle

  • Dropbox 

  • Calendly

  • GSuite (Docs, Sheets, Slides, Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Google+, Hangouts)

Deborah might email you at 11 o'clock at night but that's not because she's nocturnal; she's based in Mexico so is able to offer VA support while you sleep thanks to the difference in time zones! 

A degree in Spanish translation led Deborah to move to Mexico where she's been living for nearly 3 years, after two years in Spain (and she's fluent in Spanish of course!). 

Penny Cooke

Penny is 'hardwired' to help people and loves the satisfaction of 'a job well done'. And after nearly 30 years as a PA within the corporate world, I'm not going to argue! 

Penny has supported CEOs, Directors and even a couple of Professors whilst working for the University of Oxford so she's well versed in building relationships and working across all levels of a business. 

A self-proclaimed 'traditional' PA – Penny enjoys transcription and audio-typing and all things organising (don't we all?!) 

Away from the confines of the office, Penny loves dogs, visiting Scotland, photography, classical music, reading and baking! Penny is the Mary Berry of Exec Support Solutions.  

Natali Williams

Natali has worn many hats in her professional career, and they've not all been in traditional PA/EA roles - which is what makes Natali so multi-faceted. 
 

Natali is an expert MAC user and has experience in the following systems /software: 

  • Trello

  • Photoshop

  • Animation Software

  • Video editing

Natali loves social media management, digital branding and designing so whether it's an animated video, CRM campaign or some printed collateral, Natali is the woman for you. 

Natali is proudly South African, has 2 daughters and a dog she calls her fur baby. Natali is also a keen singer but I have it on good authority it's best saved for the shower! 

Hayley Holmes

Hayley has over 20 years of well-honed exec level experience and has wisdom in abundance. She gets inside of the heads of her clients to act as a true extension of them.
