Clarity Hours

Is time a constant barrier to achieving your daily goals?

“Many people think they lack motivation when what they really lack is clarity. It is not always obvious when and where to take action.” ~ James Clear

We all struggle to find enough time in our lives, each day there just seems to be less of it to go around. Many of us feel too tired to think, too wired to focus, and less efficient than we want to be. Our perception of the scarcity of time is coupled with stress from the modern world. We’re often aware that we’re starved for time, but what can we do about it?

Here at Elite PA Solutions, we’re always looking for ways to support you and make your daily life just that little bit easier. Sometimes all we need is the space to focus our minds, receive a little direction and hear new ideas to overcoming any of the hurdles that are holding us back from achieving our goals. We recognise that you may not need regular access to a Virtual PA, however you may benefit from some professional guidance, on managing the practical side of your business.

BOOK A CLARITY HOUR

A Clarity Hour is an hour to find clarity and simplicity, by eliminating complexity and uncertainty.

It’s the lack of clarity in our lives that creates chaos and frustration.

Setting Up as Virtual Assistant – Ask Me Anything, Pick My Brains

I worked with Sandy at Spencer Stuart for a number of years. I have since been in touch with her regarding her new VA business.

She is one of the best EAs I have worked with: highly professional and diligent with a collegiate and warm style. She is 100% reliable. I would happily recommend her to anyone requiring the services of a VA, including clients of Stork & May.

Sandy helped me shape a PowerPoint presentation for a new client. She made a dramatic difference to the quality of the presentation and did so quickly and efficiently. Having worked with Sandy before, at Spencer Stuart, I will have no hesitation in calling on her whenever I need EA help in the future.

I would recommend her without hesitation to anyone needing help in organising meetings or in producing the highest quality documentation.

I met Sandy over fifteen years ago! It has been great to see Sandy establish and grow Elite PA Solutions over the last few years. In late 2018, when the CEFLEX initiative started to expand I realised we needed some additional support and turned to Sandy to see if she could help with finding us a Virtual PA to take over some of the administrative tasks which were taking us away from our responsibilities as project managers. The additional support of a Virtual PA has really made a difference to CEFLEX. The approach works well for us and having the additional support when needed has been beneficial.

Sandy quickly understood what additional support we needed in CEFLEX, even though the sector is not one she has worked in previously. She really matched our requirements to Fi’s skills and experience and has helped to provide a key team member for the CEFLEX initiative.

This was my first experience of reaching out for support when i wasn’t entirely sure what kind of support I needed. From the outset, there was calm, clarity and a structure that enabled me to untangle some of my thoughts and get tasks into manageable bites – and then for some of those tasks to be taken off my plate and completed easily, professionally, and efficiently by Claire, was really wonderful.

Knowing this team has my back gives me the confidence to keep going with my new ideas, without worrying how I’m going to get them done. Now I know who to ask!!

In addition to four board roles, one pro bono role, and some mentoring I have two homes to organise and until recently, my elderly parents to assist.

Sandy helps me with all of this and is unfailingly effective and professional. I was reluctant to have a PA unless they were going to be really top quality, but once I found Sandy, the decision was easy.

Wanted to say a huge thanks for this morning’s session – it was brilliant!

There’s a strong possibility you’ve unleashed a new electronic monster. I’ve now got a Google Calendar on my desktop, fully colour coded (I know!!), and synced to my phone. I’ve got Client Days, Planning Days, Appointments, Holidays, and I’ve even colour-coded my TBC appointment slots!

Not only that, but I’ve also been through my entire paper diary and moved everything across to the digital version and PUT MY PAPER DIARY ON A HIGH SHELF!! I’ll faff about it if I don’t go all in, so I’m willing to give it a go. I also want to start using a calendar style app so people can book appointments online and this will help me pave the way.

Watch this space!

Sandy is an outstanding individual and the complete definition of an Executive Assistant with rock-solid integrity. I feel extremely lucky to have Sandy on my team – she is a standard-setter who always produces the highest quality pieces of work with pace and accuracy. Sandy supports our clients and candidates during the selection process and is responsible for all our compliance internally (and everything else in between!) – she takes the service we offer to another level!

Totally dedicated and the glue that holds our busy firm together, Sandy is without question loyal, patient, and most of all reliable. She never leaves anything unfinished or incomplete. Seeing things through to completion borders on an ethical obligation for her – work is never abandoned because it may be become difficult or boring! Sandy is extremely easy to work with, totally consistent, and tons of fun. Her direct, honest, and uncomplicated approach to business and working relationships has significantly improved the way we work

“Leave it with me” has become my favourite phrase of hers – I have never been let down once. Without a doubt I would recommend Sandy to any professional looking to hire Executive Assistant support.

“As a large multisite General Practice, this year has been beset with extraordinary challenges. Elite PA Solutions has allowed me to focus my time on shaping and directing our ongoing Covid response, while maintaining and developing our core services. If I didn’t have this additional support, I feel I would have been overwhelmed some time ago – and this would have had a negative impact on our organisational success.

This support isn’t just the functional minute taking, it’s the professionalism and the diligence of checking and chasing outstanding actions, while maintaining a highly professional but flexible approach that understands we often have to change our plans at very short notice, Claire has been consistently reliable and is an integral part of the team.”

Sandy and I worked at the same firm, Spencer Stuart. When I approached her, I knew I did not want to take on a permanent member of staff as my workload is variable throughout the year, what I needed was a flexible resource that could support me throughout the year. I gained advice from someone who started their own business a few years before me that advice was – you need to focus on what you are good at and outsource everything else. This is hard to do when you first setup your new business, but I would recommend others to try a Virtual PA for one month to see the value that you gain from working with the right person to support you. The cost will be variable as you become busier and you will have the comfort of knowing your clients are in good hands when you eventually take your first holiday!

Sandy listened to what I needed and very quickly introduced me to one of her team. She had worked in a leadership services business before and was used to speaking with senior executives. It was important that I could trust my PA to act on my behalf on a day to day basis once they understood how I liked to work and what my clients needed. We met face-to-face in London before we kicked off our working relationship. As soon as we met, I felt confident that she would be able to look after my clients and more importantly me!

Elite PA Solutions has been providing a high standard of Virtual PA support to TRANSEARCH for over five years. Sandy fully understands the nature of the business that we are involved in. It was helpful that we were already known to each other and she had some insights into my personality, working style and shared values.

Most importantly, Sandy has a thorough understanding of top-level international executive search and the project/ process-driven nature of what we do – characterised by high levels of professionalism, communication and discretion.

She fully appreciates the type and calibre of individual that is best suited to support a business like ours. Sandy has a knack of perfect people-matching!
