what my clients say

A few quotes from my wonderful clients

I was feeling completely overwhelmed by the administrative demands of my business.  Arwen took so much off my plate so quickly and with such a remarkable degree of polish that I could scarcely believe it. There were so many moments of what I can only describe as delight that it would take me hours of writing to relate them all. Instead I will just tell you that I love Arwen. And that my clients love Arwen. She has made a hugely positive difference to my life and my company, and she can do the same for you.

Arwen is an Executive Assistant who CARES about your business and how you’re doing it in it. If you’re looking for someone who is proactive, will go that extra mile, understands what it’s like to run your own business AND knows what you need before you do, then Arwen’s a great person to have on your team.

Arwen is organized, creative and sharp. Always anticipates what you will need before you do, given your time restrictions as an executive. Also has strong knowledge of marketing through social media and good business practice.

“Ridiculously efficient” is the phrase that comes to my mind when I think about Arwen. Arwen is very passionate and has great vision for her work. Arwen makes things happen, she keeps everything moving smoothly, she makes sure all the deadlines are met, and makes sure that whatever project she is working on meets the highest standards. She is highly knowledgeable in her field of business and at the same time, is capable of quickly understanding her clients’ needs. Her ability to listen and understand her clients’ needs allows her to consult effectively. If you are presented with opportunity to work with her – grab it.

Arwen is a delightful individual who brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm. She has a vast array of skills that has positioned her to be sought after by many potential clients. She was a key resource in stabilizing our College in a period of transition. Her guidance and support have been influential to our team and to the success of our organization.

As a small business owner, it’s easy to get stuck in moving from task to task in an inefficient way, because there’s always something pulling at your attention. Arwen helped me design a system that works. She asks great questions, listens and then moves from a bird’s-eye view of your goals, right down to the nitty-gritty details to get the job done.

Arwen makes difficult work look effortless. She is gracious, very knowledgeable of business and professional practices, and brings out the best in her clients so that they can achieve their long-term goals.

I had the pleasure of working with Arwen for several years. The breadth of her fundraising experience, adept skill at proposal writing and quite extraordinary ability to multi-task (and do it well) were all assets that benefited the organization and myself. I learned much from her in terms of development, prospecting and annual giving. She was at all times proactive, took initiative (appropriately) and gave constructive feedback when needed. She was always willing to help others, share skills and engage in knowledge transfer. Her array of organizational skills and ability to simplify processes is truly remarkable. She brings professionalism, exceptional customer service and operational expertise to whatever she puts her mind to.
