Assistant Guru provides a range of administrative support services, and deals with a variety of tasks to help ease your daily workload. I can also work with you on larger, longer-term projects. No matter what your requirements, you can feel confident that your business is being managed professionally. Services include:
Office Management: to enable you to concentrate on other areas of your business, I can manage various aspects of your office; planning meetings, diary management.
Word processing: for times when you require documents typed or formatted to the highest quality.
Powerpoint presentations: let me know your aims and objectives, and I can produce professional and imaginative presentations.
Mail Shots: to ensure your business remains front of mind, and your customers are regularly contacted, I can prepare and distribute letters, circulars, Christmas, birthday and thank you cards, invitations, and regular newsletters.
Excel spreadsheets: from keeping your accounts and managing client records to providing financial reports.
Invoices: keeping up-to-date records of all your finances/receipts and producing invoices to be sent to clients.
Client liaison: I can keep in touch with your clients, whether this be to confirm appointments or to keep them informed about an event, you can be assured that your clients will receive the best possible service.
Travel arrangements: it can be very time-consuming investigating the most convenient way to get to an event or appointment. I can organise all aspects of your travel for you, including your hotel arrangements.
Project Management & Research
Project management: many clients that I work with offer workshops, retreats, lectures and training events as part of their business. I can co-ordinate all aspects of managing the administration for such projects. From sending out invites, managing the responses, tracking payments, and liaising with those attending, to organising the venue, all your requirements can be taken care of.
Research: when you require help researching a particular product, subject, or when you need help sourcing images, for a book or article that you’re writing, I can provide you with the information you need. This service is for information readily available on the Internet only, and does not include more complex market research from published sources.
Lifestyle Management Services
Do you often feel that there just aren’t enough hours in the day? This is where Assistant Guru can help. I offer a range of Lifestyle Management services to help you keep on top of things.
Creative gift services: its great giving people a personal and well thought out gift, but I appreciate that this takes time – so leave it to me. Let me know who it’s for, and the budget you have, and I will find the perfect gift, no matter what the occasion.
Researching and making reservations: for theatre, restaurants, hotels and holidays. You still want to enjoy your time away from the business, and when you are too busy to think about arranging your social life, I can help. From recommending the best restaurants according to your taste in food to investigating holiday destinations, I can do all of this for you.
Help chasing invoices, paying bills, parking tickets, congestion charges: so often you have a long list of ‘must do’ tasks on your list, that can become very time consuming when you have to make several phone calls to get them sorted. I can do all of this for you, so that you can concentrate on more important aspects of your business and life.
