Penny was my PA for several years in my post as Warden of St Antony’s College, University of Oxford. She is a terrific problem-solver who grasps the key elements of complex issues very quickly and thinks of creative ways to ensure the best outcomes for all parties concerned. She is not afraid to make suggestions and is excellent at following up on decisions.

As my PA Penny helped me by doing both the routine tasks – from managing my diary and correspondence – and the unusual ones such as dealing with tricky situations or high-profile visitors. And she kept her sense of humour.

Penny joined my team at Oxford University Press many years ago and has worked with me for other organisations since. In all the roles and through all the challenges she’s always proven to be extremely capable and reliable - providing a range of different services and approaches; diplomatic and trustworthy - handling some very tricky situations with confidence and aplomb, and creative – devising innovative solutions to disparate challenges. I have no hesitation in recommending Penny’s services. Have a chat to her about your needs: I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Penny is the ultimate Personal Assistant. She is highly intelligent, pays exceptional attention to detail, exercises superior judgement and does it with a real sense of humour too. She’s somehow always operating several steps ahead and she understands businesses and non-profits equally.
