Virtual Assistant Stevenage
I am Jayne Bernstein and I run Pink Spaghetti Stevenage & Surrounds. My business franchise started in October 2020. My business is that of a Virtual Assistant. Pink Spaghetti, however, combines Personal Assistant services with that of the Virtual Assistant services.
I setup my business because I wanted to offer a wealth of experience of different roles from my working career to support small businesses and busy people. I have an innate sense of ways of working and am very innovative when tasks are requested.
I pride myself on my pro-activity and will listen to your requirements and suggest ideas on how we can work together.
My working career has seen several changes over the years. These skills are my Pink Spaghetti specialism. From administration, PA and secretarial work, Marketing event management and IT Support through to Project Management.
I have been a Project Manager for 25+ years, delivering small internal and client projects to international global internal and client projects. I bring a wealth of information on methodology that includes, PRINCEII and Agile. I can also help your business by looking at business processes and suggesting new or different ways of working if required.
I pride myself on my enthusiasm, reliability, approachability and all round excellent “do-er”
Why a virtual assistant?
A Virtual Personal Assistant does not just cover the traditional PA tasks but can significantly bring down your business costs. Hiring a full time PA will being with it the cost of a periodic salary, benefits, tax and equipment requirements. A VA will not require equipment or training and will provide you with the essential services you require. A VA only requires the client’s requirements, and an hourly or retainer-based contract to do the same tasks.
Whether your VA is handling your calls or clearing out your inbox, the interpersonal skills of your Virtual PA can help make your clients’ more comfortable with your services. When your clients receive immediate and reliable answers to their inquiries and concerns, it helps them establish a better rapport with your business.
All of these aspects of using a Virtual PA contribute towards a comfortable working environment and as a result, your business gains the significant benefits of using a VA
Why Pink Spaghetti?
“Backed by the Pink Spaghetti Brand”. I have used those words several times in introducing my franchise to businesses and people in general. The Pink Spaghetti franchise is a 55+ strong group across the UK and also now in Scotland. The Support gained by buying into this Franchise brand means that you are not working alone.
We ourselves are small business owners, so we understand your needs and requirements when running your business. Whatever you decide to outsource or delegate, we can help you with because, if we haven’t got the skill to do something ourselves, another Pink Spaghetti Franchisee will have that skill. You will always only pay for the one Pink Spaghetti VA though.
We can support any business, big or small because we work as a team and as I said… we are “backed by the Pink Spaghetti Brand”
A range of Virtual PA Services
Pink Spaghetti provide a non-exhaustive list of tasks for our clients. This can be from organisation and administration, through to Project Management and Social Media. Whatever your requirements are, we can probably help you.
A great example is a client who needed an e-commerce account setup to sell digital products. I was able to setup a new account for the client and add the products she wanted to sell in an hour. This task would have taken the client several hours to do herself as she did not have experience of doing something like this previously. Tasks like these are what Pink Spaghetti can do, day in day out. It really is your 25th hour in the day.
Case Studies Here is how some of our customers use us.
Data Protection Company
A new and first Project Management client for Pink Spaghetti Stevenage, the project is an international data protection gap analysis and remediation. We are acting as the Project Manager for the 15-month long project and will look after all aspects of the initiation planning, through implementation and delivery to closure.
Management Consultancy Company
Taking over a task from another Franchisee, we worked with a management consultancy company on 3 new PowerPoint template designs. The company wanted to upgrade their image from using stock photos that were several years old to a more dynamic and appropriate design for their Executive Summary, Reporting and General PowerPoint slides.
Business Telecoms Company
A business telecoms company that provide corporates with telecoms solutions required an urgent job on a Bid Tender document for Service Transition. I was able to re-write the section of the document in 3 hours in the evening for the company so they could deliver the tender the next day.
