I’m Emma Herbert – a professional, virtual executive assistant.
I have over 20 years experience in executive assistance, media, marketing, project management and business support across TV, Digital, Publishing and Consulting. I am a motivated, hard-working self-starter who, in the words of a former director, ‘really makes things happen’.
Having worked at start-ups (in the role of employee number 1) and large corporations (WPP/BBC/IPG) supporting Managing Directors and CEOs, I have a wealth of skill in running day to day operations. I love a challenge and am an excellent multi-tasker with fantastic organisational, administrative and communication skills.
I offer an Executive VA service providing an outsourced executive administrative option to suit your requirements – this complements the activities of operations, team training and management, issue handling, event planning, project management, property management, business development, marketing and day to day business support. I can complete your ‘to do’ or ‘prefer not to do’ list.
A bit more background on my business history…I started my career as a TV researcher before moving into digital marketing. I have worked in TV production, digital media, book publishing, search engine marketing, consulting and coaching, and in the capacity of production, research, account management, marketing, operations, office management and as a board level Executive Assistant. In 2009 I moved into executive virtual assistance.
I believe that being a consummate professional is key, as a management level PA since 2001, I understand all that this role requires and am adaptable and flexible to my client’s needs. I believe a solution can be found to any problem, and I guarantee the work that I deliver. I am considered trustworthy, conscientious and reliable by all my clients who are all willing to recommend me, and I am a Fellow of The Institute of Professional Administrators/Institute of Administrative Management, as well as being fully insured.
