I employed Georgiana Craster as a virtual PA in 2012, when I was a Partner with Webb Henderson LLP. At the time, it was only the two of us and she was instrumental in setting up the base in London, where the team grew. Georgiana then became the office manager and her role – apart from looking after my diary, travel, expenses, and minutes taking – included some HR, invoicing, general administration for the office and its team.
Georgiana has the capability of being, albeit virtually, constantly present by making full use of technology. Keen to learn and constantly striving to accomplish her tasks, she goes beyond hours and any job description. She is able to work seamlessly remotely with individuals and teams and joy to work with.
In 2014 I moved to Shepherd & Wedderburn LLP and Georgiana helped with the move and the arrangement came to a natural end in January 2015.
