I am an effective Executive Assistant who assists Senior-level/Executive/Directorial staff to make the best use of their time by dealing with all the day-to-day secretarial, administrative & office management tasks. In my previous two roles, I interacted with all staff on operational issues and was trusted to handle and complete important tasks in their absence.
I possess excellent interpersonal, communication, negotiation skills and the ability to develop & maintain mutually beneficial internal & external relationships. I enjoy supporting aspiring executive staff to plan, structure, organize & manage their ideas, goals & strategic objectives, to create a more streamlined & profitablerunning company/business.
I always aim at performing better than I did with the previous project ensuring that I maintain the highest working standards, professionalism and timely delivery of work. Acting immediately on any tasks are my secret of efficiency and productivity. I am that high quality Executive Assistant that you want part of your company & team.
