With Janet Murray as one of my key clients, organising fantastic live events is part of my working day. And being behind the scenes at the events, beavering away furiously, is a regular pleasure. But rarely do I go to events as “me”, representing my own business and fully intent on soaking up the content delivered on the day.

I get a lot of people ask me, tentatively, about working with a VA. Not always because they’re looking to work with me specifically (I’m not that big-headed) but generally because they’ve got to the point where they’re starting to feel overwhelmed by their business and the need to outsource some tasks is becoming a reality.
