Testimonials from some Virtuoso-PA clients. All have happily consented to share their data on my website in the form of a VA Testimonial. There are other clients’ who I have chosen to omit but who can be contacted to provide references if required.
Tiffany Beard ~ Karina – Virtuoso PA helped me at a time when I was drowning with administration. She was incredibly efficient and quick at picking up emails and managing my diary. Karina would always respond quickly, and it was a relief to know that she could look after my clients when I was busy with meetings or on holidays. I would highly recommend her services.

Gail Lowe ~ Well what can I say! Karina is the office version of Mary Poppins and has made an enormous difference to the social media aspect of my business. She is very efficient and capable. She is all over it like a rash and clients have commented on how much better my profile is these days. Fabulous I can’t recommend highly enough!

Mandy Woolfenden ~ I have worked with Virtuoso PA for two years now and have been extremely pleased with all the work that has been done for me . Everything has been explained step by step ( which I need ! ) which is very helpful . Very friendly and yet professional , excellent value top class service. I would recommend her services.
Kathy Rufolo ~ In her role as treasurer, Karina has brought our book-keeping into the 21st century. We no longer have to think about the paperwork side of finances as Karina deals with it all so efficiently. Her creative ideas, enthusiasm and fun personality really add to the team, far beyond her job description. I don’t know what we’d do without her! Thank you so much for all that you do, Karina, you superstar!
David Thomas ~ Finding time to correctly promote a business on social media can be a challenge especially as any type of activity needs constant attention. Since working with Karina we’ve been able to dramatically improve our presence on Twitter. Karina doesn’t wait for us to feed her with articles and news, she proactively finds informative news that is relevant to our business and those who follow us on Twitter.

Jonathan Miles ~ Karina is great, she gets ‘it’ about how I like to work and what I expect, nothing is too much trouble, seamless interaction with my lovely customers, 100% reliable, highly recommended.
Steven Burch ~ We’re a small business without the time or skills to make sense of social media, and it’s true to say that without Karina we would still just be talking about having a social media presence. With her help and guidance we now have a Twitter page several hundred followers in just a few months. Once briefed Karina works diligently in the background and gets on with the job. I would recommend her to anyone.
Director. Quaestus Consulting LLP
Alison Jobson ~ I employed Karina to accompany me on two brand audit workshops that I was running for a client and take notes. Karina was very professional and helpful on the day and returned her typed her notes to me very quickly afterwards. I would happily recommend her to others and am sure I will make use of her services again in the future.

Exeter Business Club is a networking group run by the members for the members. As each member has their own business to run we outsourced managing our Twitter feed to Karina at Virtuoso PA about a year ago. She quickly grasped what we are about, increased the activity on our feed, promoted the Club and our events, and each of the members equally. The service is of an excellent standard and very cost-effective.

A poem written for me:
“Know that you are appreciated and that you are loved,
Know that you are wonderful, remarkable and special.
Know that each day you put a smile on my face,
As I delight at your sharings with the whole human race.
So grateful am I that words cannot express it,
The gift that you bring to me is really quite exquisite.
The love in my heart grows brighter thanks to you,
And all that you quietly and gorgeously do.”
Wendy Harrington ~ Author & Director Exeter July 2014
MW & SD ~ Karina has been a pleasure to work with over the last few months, we feel that both your professional approach to work and flexibility around our company, which is small but needs that extra administrative support has been invaluable. We would certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a virtual assistant or someone needing ad-hoc work being done, as you not only have dealt with things professionally, you do it with ease and with little support, allowing us to focus on our business; feeling confident with whatever we have asked you to do, will be done. Cost to us has been just at the right level, allowing us to make use of you when required and not having to feel how much it will cost. As a small business cost is an important issue and we feel you have got the costing just right.

Belinda Newton ~ Karina at Virtuoso PA took over managing our Social Media and Telephone Marketing from someone who had been doing it for several years and who retired. I was quite nervous about someone else doing it, but there was no need – the transition was smooth and Karina picked up on issues quickly and efficiently. Her service is excellent value for money, she responds and reacts very quickly and has become an integral part of my business. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and Virtuoso PA to anyone.

She is my Wonder-woman! I now don’t want to run my business without her support. She makes my working life easier, she is an absolute joy to work with.

A Baker ~ Karina has been supporting me with the administrative side of my business for a few months now and I can honestly say she is the best investment I have ever made. My business has grown since she has been helping me as now I can concentrate on expanding whilst Karina ensures my existing clients are continuing to get great customer service. Karina’s services have enabled me to keep on top of the high volume of admin efficiently, without having to employ a full time administration assistant or get buried under it all. She offers a Fantastic Service. September 2013

This has enabled me to concentrate more on my core business and also has allowed me to spend more time with my family at the weekends.
