HI. I'M ALI

Your Virtual Business Assistant

With over 30 years’ experience in project management, marketing and more, I’ve left the corporate world to help start-ups and small business owners get stuff done.

As your right-hand (wo)man I can help you with your busy schedule, key projects and scaleup plans to realise your growth ambitions.

HELPING YOUR BUSINESS MOVE FORWARD

As a successful small business owner your most precious commodity is time.

I’m guessing every day is a busy day, with an ever-growing and possibly overwhelming ‘To Do’ list, and you have reached ‘ninja level’ in keeping everything ticking over.

But what if you had time to focus on what really matters to you: time to pursue your strategic plans to realise the full potential of your business, or simply more time to spend on hobbies or with friends and family?

That’s where I can help you. I’m dedicated to alleviating some of the stress you’re under, whether you want to handoff some day-to-day business admin, get that important project off the ground (finally!), or plan for future business growth.

I’m the safe pair of hands giving you peace of mind and time to focus on the important stuff.

Another member of your team, either hidden behind the scenes or front of house..… when you need me.

HOW I WORK

I am just as invested in your business succeeding as you are, but are we a good fit?


In a nutshell, I love a list and I love detail. I'm also....

  • Results-driven – large corporate experience but with a start-up mindset. I'm commercially focused and a customer advocate, always working to improve quality, productivity and efficiency

  • Logical – I love nothing more than establishing cast iron processes and procedures

  • Self-sufficient – give me something to do and I’ll get on with it

  • Independent – I won’t be afraid to challenge when necessary

  • High standards – excellent attention to detail, highly consistent in performance

  • Dependable – practical, organised and efficient, you can rely on me to get the job done

  • Empathetic and personable member of the team - able to take people on a journey


Whilst I may be working with a number of clients at any one time, I will always maintain the high-quality standards I pride myself on. ​

CONTACT

Please contact me to set up an initial chat to see what I can bring to your business. 

You may have a specific project you want to talk about, or you may just want an informal discussion around the priorities for your business, the areas you think I can help, and the number of days/hours you require.

And, just to be transparent, when considering your requirements and timeframe I will always ensure I can balance my available hours against what your project needs.
