I’m Deborah and I’m a secret weapon – well, that’s how I’ve been described by a client. It’s a great way to think about what I do – those tasks that are essential for running a small business but aren’t the main area of focus for the business owner.

I started my business in 2016 after being made redundant. After 25 years of being the glue that held everything together in various companies, I decided to become that glue for entrepreneurs instead.

I particularly love social media planning and posting, as well as the operational side of businesses and project management. Think of me as your Office Manager.

My clients regain the time and space to focus on what really matters to them, enabling them to put their plans into action, achieve their business goals and most importantly, grow their business.

I offer a free one-hour complimentary consultation to find out whether I could be a good fit for your business. Get in touch here.

 

Deb is my secret weapon. She’s professional, thorough, works tirelessly and very committed. She’s involved in so many different areas with our business and always has her finger on the pulse. She’s great at managing people, engaging both internally with the team and externally with clients.

I have been working with Deborah since May 2018 – we set an ambitious target to manage my social media posts for 6 months. I am really pleased to report that the project has progressed really well, with only a couple of months left to go.

I am delighted with the support that Deborah has provided – her attention to detail, organisation and “client-management” skills are superb. The peace of mind that I have had through knowing the Deborah has everything in hand has been incredibly valuable. The icing on the cake is that the challenge of setting up daily social media posts on a rolling 2 week programme has been fully met. Two huge big ticks in boxes!

I have no hesitation in recommending Aqua Business Support if you are looking for spot on management, consistency and peace of mind.

I have been using Deborah’s business support service for twelve months now. The service has provided excellent support by providing word processing and preparation of report templates. This has freed valuable time for me to invest in report writing and analysis rather than routine tasks.

The service offered by Aqua Business Support has always been timely, flexible and responsive to my needs and has been of the highest quality.
