“I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any role in working with an executive colleague.”

“Nicola Slade has been my executive assistant for almost a year since being appointed CEO and has done a fantastic job. Her organisation, diligence to the task and pro-active problem solving is impressive. Nicola can anticipate the requirements of our various stakeholders and takes initiative to help me facilitate solutions as well as provide concise communication. Our efforts to promote the wellbeing of our whole workforce are supported by Nicola and she is an ambassador for the executive team. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for any role in working with an executive colleague.”

Ian Gargan, Chief Executive, Private Healthcare Information Network

“Nicola builds enduring relationships.”

“I’ve worked with Virtual Angels for just under four years and have never looked back. Nicola is without doubt, one of the most diligent, thorough and compassionate colleagues I’ve worked alongside. Nicola has an incredibly keen eye for detail and complements this with a wealth of thoughtful new ideas and opportunities. Nicola builds enduring relationships with all those around her and is incredibly popular with anyone lucky enough to meet her. Truly tremendous, I cannot recommend highly enough.”

Damian O’Boyle, Director of Client Services,

“Every company needs a Nicola!”

“Every company needs a Nicola! I worked with a Nicola at an early-stage start-up that grew rapidly, and somehow, as if by magic, Nicola kept the show on the road without breaking a sweat. All of those tricky things that soak up time and attention – sensitive diary coordination (especially with lots of senior stakeholders spread across the country) that was mindful of our priorities, the complex logistics involved in coordinating meetings, equipment, events, and international travel, recruitment, and onboarding…you name it, Nicola does it calmly and elegantly. Not only is Nicola a consummate professional, but her warmth, kindness, attention to detail, and dedication always shines through.”

Olivia Hind, Partnerships Director,

“Nicola was highly responsive.”

“Nicola and her organisation were recommended to me through a colleague in the same building. Nicola was highly responsive; nothing was too much trouble and Nicola understood my needs immediately. We agreed our working arrangements and within days we were up and running. I am very satisfied with the contract and would highly recommend Nicola and her colleagues.”

Joanne Bosanquet, CEO, Foundation of Nursing Studies

“Ask Nicola and it shall be done.”

“Ask Nicola and it shall be done. It’s rare to find a person who is this excellent at keeping many plates spinning. Nicola is the oil that keeps the engine running, extremely helpful, empathic, and always on top of it. Would highly recommend working with her.”

Loes van Egmond, Director of Business Development Europe,

“I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

“I called Virtual Angels when we needed immediate help in our business. Virtual Angels were recommended by a senior colleague I have enormous respect for. From the first contact with Nicola, I have experienced the highest quality of support, always professional, creative, and always solution focussed. I would not hesitate to ask for their help again. Very highly recommended.”

Melinda Rees, Managing Director, Simplify Health

“Virtual Angels are simply brilliant.”

“Virtual Angels are simply brilliant. Over the past year Nicola has worked closely with me and my team to put in place and run the administrative systems for a fast-growing start-up company. Her excellent work has freed up my time to lead the company and focus on sales and operations. Nicola offers big company and “grown-up” capability and professionalism adapted for a small, fast-growing start-up. She is completely reliable, trusted, discrete, practical, helpful and always cheerful.”

Robert Osborne, Chairman and Managing Director

“…made my life a lot easier.”

“I work with a number of different organisations: Virtual Angels has the complex task of liaising with all of them and we rarely have any diary clashes. They have been a huge support to me over the last few years and have made my life a lot easier.”

Andrew Vallance Owen, Non-Executive Director

“…great for my business and for my peace of mind.”

“Working with Nicola is great for my business and for my peace of mind. As a one-person business, I have to wear many hats and there are things that struggle to make it to the top of my to do list – it’s brilliant having someone I can trust to take care of those things for me, so that I can concentrate on client work and other things that play to my strengths. Nicola doesn’t just help my business, often she keeps me sane!”

Sarah Browning, Owner, Browning York

“…they really do give me peace of mind.”

“The Virtual Angels team raise the standards of professionalism from what I came to expect of support roles. In three years, I have never had to worry about an outcome of their work – they really do give me peace of mind and I know that if they are looking after a piece of work, it’s truly taken care of.”

Samantha Meikle, Founder, Spark the Difference

“…the absolute support that the Board and I were looking for.”

“When first advertising for this position we had not considered the services of a virtual agency, but Nicola and Holly and completely dispelled any misgivings by providing the absolute support that the Board and I were looking for. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Virtual Angels.”

Sue Knight, Chief Executive, The Confederation of Healing Organisations

“…one of the best business decisions I’ve made.”

“Working with Nicola and Virtual Angels was one of the best business decisions I’ve made. At the start of our relationship I wasn’t that clear on what I wanted Nicola to do so we started slowly and grew from there. I remember smiling when Nicola said one day ‘Why don’t I take that for you, it would free up some of your time’. Now isn’t that just what you want? Nicola is an absolute professional, she is approachable, fun and really gets my business. Working with her is a joy and she is such an asset to the team. As a non-techy person, her knowledge and patience with me is a big plus and she very much takes the lead here. The business has grown because of her and I couldn’t do without her.”

Heather Waring, Women Walking, Women Talking

“Real peace of mind and a godsend.”

“Brilliant Service. Virtual Angels have been exactly that, looking after even the smallest detail in managing the rental of our flat while we were overseas. They have been perfect to have as a local contact for both the rental agent and the tenant. As a result, we had a “Perfect 10 out 10” tenant for two and a half years and could move straight back in. Real peace of mind and a godsend, well done and many thanks.”

Chris and Jane Forsdyke, Property Owners

“…trusted in providing excellent work!”

“My experience with Virtual Angels has been very rewarding. I always feel that my business is valued and 100% supported in helping it grow. Nicola is very efficient in organising all my administration and gets the job done in a timely manner. She is always available to arrange a meeting and I genuinely feel like my business could not have survived without her. For anyone interested in using Virtual Angels to assist with their entrepreneurial endeavours, Virtual Angels can certainly be trusted in providing excellent work!”

Melissa Clarke, Owner, Flexi Pop-ins

“…the Angels twinkle again…I’ll be back.”

“Well the Angels twinkle again for JPSM Property Development. They successfully advertised and managed the recruitment of a vital member of staff for us. Thank you again Holly and Nicola. I’ll be back.”

Dave Masters, Director, JSPM Property Development Limited
