In these busy, fast-paced times, it can be hard to have enough time to do everything. With demanding careers, vibrant home lives and the desire to travel more often, the 21st Century adult has plenty on his or her plate. If you have ever wished you had another pair of hands or could be in two places at once, a first-rate Personal Assistant could be the solution.
A top P.A. is much more than an administrator. Certainly, they can help organise the payment of all your household bills in a timely fashion and manage every last detail of the mountains of paperwork that may plague your life. Also, you may wish for the modern Personal Assistant to take manage your email or other online communications. But their role can encompass much more besides.
Many clients engage P.A.s to help with the broader aspects of their life. For example, you need never miss another birthday or forget to buy a present again; it can all be taken care of for you. Should there be a big celebration coming up, your P.A. will be on hand to assist with the details, or even, for very significant events like weddings, be on hand to liaise fully with the wedding organiser. Or if there is a 50th birthday party, they can help with the planning from invitations to paying the caterer, which frees you up to enjoy being the gracious host or hostess.
For more frequent occurrences, like dinner parties, restaurant visits, theatre trips, visit to sporting matched, a good P.A. will help organise everything you need. That also goes for perhaps less pleasurable appointments like booking doctor’s and dentist’s appointments for you and your family, plus ensuring you are reminded about them.
Naturally, with a P.A. on hand, organizing holidays and other trips abroad – or any travel at all for that matter - becomes a breeze. Also, whilst their duties should not be confused with those of a nanny, they may be able to assist with the practical challenges of parenthood, helping ease logistical clashes and managing the family diaries, for example.
A truly excellent, experienced P.A. such as those we work with, will have top organisational skills and may help create systems that will help make life far easier. Please call us to discuss your own P.A. requirements at any time.
