Skills

Summary

I am a diplomatic professional Office Manager, with 25 years experience in all aspects of office administration, and have a strong business sense, enterprising attitude, and effective problem solving skills.

My career started as an office and facilities manager with a top assurance company in Toronto, where I not only employed and managed temporary staff, but was also responsible for managing staff benefits and facilities management. As career progressed, I worked in a similar capacity with several other companies in the Toronto area, some of the industries included legal, property management and the media.

Having gained practical experience and strong business skills, and upon the urging of several colleagues who saw her potential, I subsequently decided to start my own business as a professional Office Manager/PA, managing 3 staff members (Admin, Sales and PR). This business ran along side another business as Chief Editor of my own full-colour print magazine geared to small business entrepreneurs, managing to obtain $10,000 in advertising dollars for the first issue.

My current list of clients come from various industries such as government, legal, accountancy, charities, the media, networking groups, directories, insurance, and various SME businesses. I have always been interested in helping busy professionals get organised and reach their business goals, and am a strong believer in using time efficiently. I am dedicated to helping busy professionals work smarter focusing on incoming-producing tasks, rather than on admin processes.
