Portfolio PA is a Virtual Assistant service owned and operated by Gemma Walton, a modern, efficient Virtual Assistant and Freelance PA based in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
What does a Virtual Assistant do?
I provide remote business support to entrepreneurs, business owners and consultants and offer a flexible solution to the perennial problem of not having enough hours in the day.
What experience do you have?
Prior to founding Portfolio PA in 2015, I spent over 10 years as a senior EA and PA within FTSE 250 businesses, including Arup, Yorkshire Water, Premier Farnell and more. I worked with CEOs, MDs and C-Suite Directors responsible for HR, Marketing, Communications, Customer Experience, Organisational Development, Transformation and Change.
I am a fellow of the Executive and Personal Assistants Association (EPAA), and a speaker at PA events across the UK.
In 2019 I was invited to speak on the Radio Leeds breakfast show to discuss my business and the PA industry, and I am a contributing author for Executive Secretary magazine.
I also sat on the judging panel for the 2019 Yorkshire PA of the Year Awards.
Why should you hire me as your Virtual Assistant?
I am commercially astute, extremely organised, a strong communicator and have a keen eye for detail. I work with each client on an individual basis to understand their requirements and to offer bespoke solutions on how a Virtual Assistant can help and support their business. I’m trusted, reliable and always keep my clients fully updated on the status of their work.
I am a registered data controller with the ICO, am registered for Anti-Money Laundering with HMRC, and hold full professional indemnity insurance.
