“A pleasure to work with Dee again, this time producing a master template document for a client’s re-brand project. Dee’s professional approach combined with her knowledge, experience and efficiency with Microsoft Word means her work is always top-notch no matter what the time constraints! I look forward to working with Dee again very soon.”

Graham Dickinson – GS2 Design Ltd

“After seeing Dee’s hints and tips for word and excel on LinkedIn I asked if Dee could simplify production of client-letters for me. Dee was prompt, excellent value for money, diligent and above all, provided me with the result I wanted. I would recommend Dee to anyone, and it seems no job is too small for her and she was professional throughout. My advice is not to hesitate – if you have a piece of work that needs doing – she’s your person!!”

David Milbourn ~ Stringer Mann Chartered Financial Planners

“It was 9 months ago I found Dee. At that time I was spending huge amounts of my time doing functions of web search and mailings to potential clients. I was nervous about delegating with so much complexity and ‘how could anyone deal with what are highly intelligent appraisals from information gleaned?’ I was also concerned about the quality of mailing data and presentation required and the regular monthly timescale for the mailing activity. I needed to have no worries. Dee handled the learning very easily and the quality of the result is wonderful.

She has developed systems for automation which clearly save enormous time and prove an high level of accuracy. She has proved to be a pair of very safe hands for taking calm control and showing intelligent reliability.”

Malcolm Baxter ~ Baxter Capital Ltd

“I like working with Dee as she makes the whole process straightforward and seamless. She provided good instruction before starting the project to ensure all elements were in place, aiding a quick turnaround upon commencement. I’d highly recommend Dee for her PowerPoint technical skills and being a pleasure to work with.”

Kate Marston ~ KM Designs

“I’m very happy to share the great work Dee recently completed for me formatting a lengthy document, giving it a new lease of life and generally making it look super-professional and up-to-date. Dee made it seem easy and was on hand with suggestions and tips along the way. The end product was completed on schedule and was great value for money.

A pleasure to work with and delighted to recommend!”

Ruth George ~ HR Director

“I’ve known Dee for just over two years now and in that time she has become one of my most trusted advisers. Dee has helped me on a couple of client projects during which she supported on the creation of complex and sensitive document production (and the numerous iterations that followed!). Dee is always professional and discreet which is why I would have no hesitation in recommending her for any projects in which documents need producing, amending or maintaining or indeed, for anything else that requires a project support / coordinator.”

Sarah Sen MCIPD ~ Sen HR Consulting

“Dee loves ‘beautiful documents’; if you want to ensure your documents shout professionalism, high quality and standards, Dee is the person to deliver. The documents she creates are not only grammatically accurate without errors, they are expertly presented for maximum communication of information. She is a whizz at excel, word and PPPs. I love a well-presented document that represents my standards and professionalism it makes such a difference when I give documents to clients or prospective investors.

Appreciate a beautiful document and see what Dee can do for your business.”

Rachel Halling MBA ~ Principal Consultant at Halling consultancy

“Dee is highly organised, patient and is a pleasure to work with. Dee’s talents are many but creating excellent spreadsheets and documents to make your life easier and saving hours of time is invaluable. Dee works tirelessly and efficiently ensuring all the parts of the business you do not have the time to do, are done. I highly recommend Dee.

She is not a VA in traditional terms she is so much more.”

Sharon Gaffney ~ Verde Business Solutions

“A fabulous review for Dee who has been a great support and help to me in many ways and for many different areas over the past couple of years. Dee is extremely reliable and can meet deadlines with no problem, always communicates effectively with updates so you never get left wondering what is happening…

Dee is also forward thinking in her approach so will suggest ways that might improve the way you are working.  Excellent skills in MS office and especially CRM experience and project work – she can pretty much turn her hand to anything and if she doesn’t know she will find out.  Thanks Dee”

Julie Grimes ~ Jaguar White Recruitment

“Dee is great to work with! She’s organised, responsible and completely unflappable. She has managed a project getting things done and booked with minimal support; a very safe pair of hands. She’s also extremely personable and good fun to have on the team!”

Kathy Soulsby ~ Personally Virtual

“As a small business owner it is vital to have people around you that you can trust to have your best interests at heart, keep you focussed and give you support and encouragement. Dee excels at all of the above. I already rely on her as my wing man, to ensure the back office operation of the business runs efficiently and effectively. Dee is both proactive and pragmatic as required and is a pleasure to work with. She is strategic in her approach which makes her a real asset to my business as it is changing rapidly!”

Jo Bayne ~ Marketing Mentor at Sweet Charity

“Reviewing the time together for our Training Day, I find interesting words coming to mind. Relaxed, un-scary, unhurried, insightful, energising, empathetic, empowering.

Thank you very much indeed for a beautifully timed and crafted session.”

C. Embleton-Smith ~ Christian Books Worldwide

“Bringing Dee on board as a member liaison officer for Genderbuzz has meant that we have been able to significantly upgrade our customer service and member communication. With Dee on board, workshops and meetings are fast and efficiently scheduled and run like a dream.

I thoroughly enjoy working in a team with Dee and absolutely trust her judgement and would recommend her to any small business owner.”

Natasha Stromberg ~ Genderbuzz

“I have known Dee for a couple of years and she always comes across as very calm, organised and in control of any situation. I had the very good fortune of being able to work with her recently, she has shown me how to get the best out of a CRM system, which is actually freeing up my time and making my life easier!

Then she wrote a macro which enabled a spreadsheet which had all the right information but not in a workable order for me, which enabled the spreadsheet to be transformed into usable information-it was as if by magic! I cannot recommend Dee highly enough for taking on board everything calmly and putting everything into order. She has saved me so much time!!

Amazing lady! Everyone needs 3D-VA!”

Claire Lee ~ Venue Queen Ltd

“I have used 3D-VA to create my business templates and she has taken everything on board I asked for and created some impressive documents. She has a natural eye for detail and her work is of a high professional quality. Dee is reliable, friendly and efficient.”

Helen Pettifer ~ Helen Pettifer Training

“I have worked with Dee for nearly a year now and would thoroughly recommend her services. She has revolutionised the way we do business by suggesting and implementing systems, training us on the use of those systems remotely and cajoling us when we err from the path!

Her professional approach has meant we can trust her to look after a specific area of the business allowing us to focus our attentions on other areas that were often under-resourced.”

Matt Ash ~ Ash Wills

“Dee has and continues to be a valuable virtual assistant. She has created an excellent reporting system that helps to track opportunities and ensure people are contacted at the appropriate time.”

Melanie Lodge ~ Director of Audition Oracle

“I’ve recently engaged Dee to do a couple of pieces of work for me. I have been delighted with the results! She has delivered on time, and provided exactly what I asked for and needed. She went the ‘extra mile’ to make sure that everything was completed to my satisfaction.

I would highly recommend her if you are a busy business owner, thinking about outsourcing some of your work. I plan to use her again in the future.”

Tania Barney ~ Sensory Intelligence Consulting

“Dee has just completed her first piece of work for APM. I was very pleased with the results – Dee asked some pertinent questions up front and provided the work to deadline. The delivery and formatting was great and she covered all the bases. I will happily use her again and recommend her to others.”

Alison Page ~ Alison Page Marketing

“Dee is a delight to work with. She did exactly what she said she would and when. She got on with the tasks using her skills and experience contacting me only to clarify when necessary. The outputs were complete, accurate and clearly presented.”

Martin Munro ~ Business Adviser, The Alternative Board (West Herts)

“I spoke to Dee about an idea for a spreadsheet I had, just in conversation, where I knew what I wanted to put in and what I wanted it to show as output. I knew it was probably doable, but that I’d have to find the time to sit down and work out exactly how to do it, and since it had been on my to-do list for some time now, that wasn’t likely to happen any time soon. I saw Dee a few days later and she showed me the spreadsheet I had described, she had taken on board exactly what I wanted it to do, and created it perfectly!

That was some serious time saved on my behalf, and now I have a handy tool that I can provide for clients which will make our working together much more valuable.  Spreadsheets are not just for adding up your accounts, they can do all sorts of wonderful things to make running your business easier, speak to Dee about what you’d like to do, and benefit from her spreadsheet magic!”

Carli Wall ~ Synergy Business Support

“I contacted Dee over the summer for some much needed virtual admin support on the run up to my wedding and while I was away on honeymoon. I could not recommend her services more! Dee met with me to discuss my needs and quickly understood my business and how it works. She provided an excellent service to clients and colleagues and was highly efficient and professional. This was the first time for five years that I have been able to leave my work phone at home and have a complete break. I returned to find everything up to date, my diary managed and appointments booked for me. Just brilliant! I will now be using Dee’s services on a regular basis to help me to manage busy times of the year and when I’m away for work or on holiday.”

Jane Opie ~ Dyslexia Herts

I would highly recommend Dee at 3D-VA. I recently contacted 3D-VA for some assistance with scheduling for a series of up and coming exhibitions. Dee provided me with excellent support including web administration at a time when I needed to focus on my art practice. 

I was very impressed.”

Chrissy Mclaughlan

“I am not a very organised person. I love lists and post it notes and highlighters and I often find myself getting into a right mess. I am always worried that one of my to-do lists would get missed and I would be in trouble. So I sent my scrappy to do list to Dee with a simple request. Help! What I got back transformed my life. She created me a pivot table. A what? I hear you ask, I didn’t really know what one was either except it looked scary and complicated. After about 5 mins of Dee patiently walking me through it I had it figured out.

Now, to anyone looking over my shoulder, I look like the most organised person in the world. With easy red amber and green indicators to let me know how I’m doing and pointing out if something is on the verge of being missed. I still like planning on paper but now I simply transfer all my notes to my table at the end of the day and it all becomes organised. I love it. Thanks so much for sorting me out.”

Jacqui Flavell ~ Leadership Delivery Manager, BT Group Plc
