I F Shepherd MA, FIA

“I had the pleasure of working with Alison at Mercer Limited for several years until 2007, and during most of this time Alison was my personal assistant. Mercer are pension consultants and are heavily involved in providing actuarial, investment, legal, communication and consultancy advice, as well as administering pension schemes.

Alison and I were client facing and so her role included contact with clients. She also created and maintained databases, organised the billing, arranged travel and meetings and produced reports, letters and internal communications. To do all this, which often involved tight deadlines,

Alison exhibited superb organisational skills. She also obtained the co-operation of colleagues of varying seniority and liaised effectively with other departments and offices.

Alison set a uniformly excellent standard in all aspects of her work, including marvellous people skills. In every office there are tensions and disagreements, but Alison never created any of these and was always a calming influence. Her cheerful, balanced approach had a positive effect on office morale. She was comfortable with new technology and continually strove to improve, even though her standards were already the best.

I have no hesitation in recommending Alison’s secretarial and PA services.”

Claire Agutter

“Alison completed some audio-typing for me as part of her virtual PA service. The whole process from quote through to delivery was professional and friendly. The quality of the output was extremely high and required no alterations.

I’d strongly recommend Alison to anyone who needs PA services that they can rely on.”

Clive Barwell, IFA, Society of Later Life Advisers accredited

“I gave Alison a set of amateur PowerPoint slides I had produced and she turned these into a stunning, professional presentation in a matter of a few days.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Alison’s work, which is highly professional, timely and cost-effective.”

Sheena Whyatt, Lightning Training

“I hired Alison to work on updating some course outlines and other information for me as I was putting together the course brochure for Lightning Training this year.

The work she did was exceptional – I simply gave her the brief, and got back exactly what I asked for, when I needed it. It was a joy to work with her – and I wouldn’t hesitate to engage her again in future.”

Richard Eaton, Appware

Alison recently did some work for me and even though I only gave her a 5 minute spec of what needed doing it was done quickly, efficiently, and in less time than she estimated.  I’d recommend Alison and her super service to anyone!”

D Redfern, Pensions Consultant

“I have worked with Alison Rothwell for a number of years. Alison has provided both secretarial and PA services for me. I can confirm that

Alison has a good ethic and is both efficient and very reliable.

The work undertaken by Alison is of excellent quality and is provided as per agreed timescales.”
