"I have been working with both Nicola and Charlotte at Evelyn & Ford for almost a year now, and they are fast becoming indispensable, both in my global executive coaching business managing day to day functions both client facing and behind the scenes across geographies; in social media; and supporting me as wedding planners arranging our wedding - I am incredibly grateful to have found Nicola and Charlotte....the tasks they support me with are varied and many....I can highly recommend Evelyn & Ford for virtual assistant support...I can't quite remember how I managed without them! Please feel free to contact me for a more detailed reference, as required."
"I feel very fortunate to have had Evelyn & Ford recommended to help me get a better handle on my planning and general admin tasks. From day one it was clear that I would receive what I had asked for plus much more.
Within months, Charlotte and Nicola helped me to clarify and realise my vision, to the extent that what I do now and how I do it truly reflects and compliments my values and preferred ways of doing things. I feel a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders, which has had a huge positive impact on me. Through working with these ladies, my business has been transformed in terms of branding, marketing, improved processes, and sales. Everything just flows so much better now and I find myself in a place where I have the space to decide my next move with the reassurance, that when the time is right, I have access to the expertise available at Evelyn & Ford to make things happen. Working with Charlotte and Nicola is such a positive experience and the level of trust, integrity and professionalism they demonstrate is a breath of fresh air."
"Launching a new business is exciting but it also brings its own terrors around organisation, especially if it is online. Charlotte and Nicola have provided templates to cover everything that I need to ensure that I get to my clients on time, they have been my cheerleaders when I have had self doubt, and thought of things that I haven't. You've all heard the childhood story about the shoemaker and the elves, Charlotte and Nicola are those elves - magic can still happen even when you are an adult."
"We have never used Executive/Virtual Assistants before but have recently engaged the services of E&F. They listened to our requirements, set out a clear plan of action and have executed that plan professionally and diligently - what more could we ask for! Nicola and Charlotte are a pleasure to deal with - attentive, knowledgeable and efficient. We have enjoyed working with them and would highly recommend their services."
Adam Wright, Director - Tigermar
"I have always struggled to know how a VA can assist me in my business without loosing my own branding and in all honesty... control. However with Evelyn and Ford it has been an absolute essential service to enable me to move forward. Charlotte and Nicola are very approachable and dynamic girls – they are passionate, creative and have enabled me to let go and allow new processes into my business which has enhanced it. They take you through step by step and also offer other options that you may not have considered. If you are not sure where to start – my recommendation is to book your call today with them – especially if you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed trying to be effective in your business and your branding."
Beverley Webb, Founder - The Stepforward Practice
"Charlotte and Nicola recently assisted me with some work on a client event and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were both very professional, super-efficient and quick to respond to any requests I sent their way. They were great at keeping me informed at every stage, ensuring I could manage my client's expectations, and their research skills were top-notch when it came to sourcing venues and putting together a complex schedule for site visits. I will definitely be using their services again in the future and, in fact, have already recommended them to another potential client whom I didn't have the capacity to take on."
Holly Copsey, Virtual PA - Virtually Priceless
"Charlotte is an outstanding PA. From my time when she worked for me, she was very efficient, hard working and always got the job done. I would highly recommend her as she is excellent in her field. Working on a trading floor is a challenging environment and she coped extremely well with the pressure and always delivered an excellent level of service. Our business wouldn’t have run efficiently without her..."
James Carlisle - Former Chief Operations Officer, Bank of America
"Nicola was my assistant for almost 5 years whilst I was based in London. In this role, Nicola supported me with everything, from arranging telepresence meetings, diary management and booking extensive travel. Her attention to detail and her 'can do' attitude is like no other. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to whomever would require her assistance or support at work."
Mike Robertson- Head of Transactional FX Trading, Bank of America
"Nicola was essential to ensuring that everything ran smoothly for our team. Be it day-to-day planning or tailored travel
arrangements, she always got the job done with a smile. She is proactive, meticulous and consistently delivers under pressure."
Rachel Tay, Head of Buyer Analytics - Ebay
"Nicola and Charlotte at Evelyn and Ford have been total life savers. They have assisted me with last minute travel and personal life admin I couldn't face."
Jamie Bradbury, Digital Marketing Director - Border Media
"Nicola is one of the best (if not the best!) executive assistants I have had the pleasure to be assigned to when I worked in the London office. She not only does everything to precision, always delivers top quality work with a smile despite working in a highly pressured trading floor, and most importantly she goes above and beyond what her job scope is to ensure the well-being of my team and the smooth running of the operations from expenses, to various flights and hotel bookings. She is a great loss to the firm but at the same time, I am very excited for her to be able to offer her services to benefit many others."
Ping Tan, Managing Director - APAC FICC Trading, Bank of America
"I work in a highly stressed and attention demanding environment in which even basic needs like eating can be missed sometimes. It is my honour to have known Nicola since 2014. She took care of all my administrative tasks so that I could put 100% into my workload. With thanks to her, I was able to deliver ample business results more effectively and efficiently. Nicola goes above and beyond to assist, she is two steps ahead and offers options and alternatives to any problem. She is smart, flexible, able to read people well and accommodate to everyones needs."
