Who am I? – Deborah (Founder)

After being made redundant in 2016, I decided to strike out on my own and provide my business support skills on a freelance basis. Setting up a business from scratch was certainly a steep learning curve, but underpinning everything was the fact that no-one can do it all.  Having been through my own journey, I feel well placed to provide support to other business owners and entrepreneurs.

I run my own home single-handedly and I’m a mum to a teenager, so I’m used to prioritising, juggling (not literally), delegating and keeping things ship-shape and running efficiently. I’m certainly up for most challenges.

Business-wise, I have over 25 years of experience in a variety of sectors, including a busy transport office,  a counselling service, a children’s services provider and the country’s biggest multi-disciplinary Expert Witness service. 

Little-known fact – I used to have a fork-lift truck license.

When I’m not busy keeping things on an even keel at work and at home, I enjoy losing myself in anything medieval (books, films, castles), bribing myself to run a few times a week and learning new stuff.

Providing Time to Focus - Putting Plans into Action - Promoting Growth

I was introduced to Deborah through a mutual friend and was immediately impressed by her can-do attitude and professionalism, both over Skype and in-person.

Deborah took it upon herself to understand the bigger picture relating to my business as well as the individual research task I assigned to her. Deborah diligently completed the extensive research for me which was both in line with the brief and returned in an easy-to-read format, well within the timeframe set. This meant that Deborah drew on her own experience in project management and was able to add value with finesse and ease.

I would happily work with Deborah again and know she will remain a true asset to all clients she goes on to support.
