Testimonials

Testimonial – Jan du Plessis

Alison was my Executive Assistant for two years as Chairman of SABMiller, during which time we managed a $100 billion takeover by AB InBev. I found her to be exceptionally capable; always unflustered, even when we were working under considerable stress; very good at anticipating my needs; and generally displaying the mature judgement and competence one would expect from an experienced EA. Always highly discreet and, above all, somehow managing to do everything with a smile.

Testimonia – Sheila Noakes

Alison is probably the best all round PA that I have worked with – and I have worked with quite a lot over the years. She is calm, insightful, efficient and discrete. She also has a good sense of humour so those difficult days are fun too.

Baroness Sheila Noakes, NED Royal Bank of Scotland

Testimonial – Dame Patricia Hodgson

I found Alison to be an outstanding EA, combining efficiency, anticipation, tact and intelligence, enabling anyone she works for to do their own job better than would otherwise be possible.  She is totally reliable and trustworthy

Dame Patricia Hodgson, ex Chairman, Ofcom

Testimonial – Grant Rumbles

I have had many different EAs over the years. Alison is by far the best EA I ever had the pleasure of organising me. She is excellent in all facets of the role. Her organisational diary skills are exceptional. She has a lovely manner with other stakeholders and staff, which allowed every meeting I needed to be arranged to take place at a suitable time and location globally – very difficult to achieve. Whilst I was CEO, she basically organised my whole life. She is friendly, professional, honest and hard working. If I am ever in need of a EA again, I will certainly ask her to join me.
