Meet Alison Cooper
Hi, I’m Alison Cooper, founder of My Virtual Assistant.
I started my career as a classically trained secretary working in the City of London for major financial institutions and law firms, moving on to become a Personal Assistant to a senior partner of a leading premium global law firm. I have worked internationally in Belgium, Sweden and Brazil. Being naturally technically minded I moved on to IT training, ultimately ending in IT Support where I not only dealt with clients on a day to day basis, but also provided technical training to IT analysts who joined the team.
I founded My Virtual Assistant back in April 2011.
I started off as a solo virtual assistant but now have an able team of supporters who help me with the day to day running of my business, thus allowing me to provide a personalised working relationship with my clients.
If you wish to organise a free consultation please do not hesitate to contact me. Consultations are usually held via Skype, Facetime, Google Hangout or over the telephone. Alternatively, if you live within the Hertfordshire area I am happy to arrange a face to face meeting.
All the best,
What Our Customers Are Saying
Don't just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
"Alison is a fantastic VA. What do I like the most? Her "can do" attitude, she is quick but precise. I can assure you that Alison does not need to be managed or supervised in anyway. She works so well. I have a great amount of trust in Alison. I never have to worry about the work she does, and how long it takes. She is great at prioritising too. I work in a profession that Alison had no history / knowledge in - within a couple of hours together she understood everything. She is a quick learner and I have to add thats she's great with IT. I know people use VAs for ad hoc work - whatever you choose to do, using Alison will guarantee results for you. Since using Alison my life has become less stressful and I thank her for that."Laura Horton
"Alison and her My Virtual Assistant team are a godsend to anyone who needs any organisational help or social media services. I have worked with them for a number of years now and they have always delivered excellent quality - and more importantly have never missed a deadline! I have used their services for everything from Word or Powerpoint help, basic admin and expense management help, through to setting up and running social media campaigns - and they never fail to deliver. I would highly recommend her and her team as virtual assistant support for any small business owner or anyone who needs help in managing a diverse and busy workload. And with the range of skills and services they offer, there is very little that they cannot support."Martina Doherty
"We write a lot of articles and copy for our web site but when it came to a flyer we all drew a blank. We contacted Alison and within a very short period of time, with the minimum of input from us, she had come up with a winning concept we went with first time.
Whilst its great to like the work of a supplier the real proof of concept comes with the use, Alison's words won us business. It doesn't get better than that. Thank you Alison, for helping us at a time when we had faffed with our own attempts for so long we had all got writer's block.
Alison is a decisive clear writer and thinker, just the sort of help we all need in our business life. Thanks Alison."Sue Edwards
"Very capable, trustworthy and excellent at her job."Dr Mark Ali
"I got in contact with Alison to work on some complex Word template files that required an expert knowledge of Microsoft Office. As a designer I had very specific requirements of how I needed the templates to look and function, but was unsure if some of the features were possible or how to implement them within the restrictions of MS Office.
Alison was prompt and extremely knowledgable, not only producing the document to my specifications but also providing solutions to all technical issues faced along the way. I would highly recommend her services."RRussell Hall
"My Virtual Assistant has been providing virtual typing services for me for nearly a year. The work is delivered on time and to a high standard with little editing necessary therefore enabling me to turn around my work more efficiently. I am happy to recommend My Virtual Assistant and look forward to continuing to use their services in future."Stephen Boniface
"I’ve used My Virtual Assistant to help put our monthly newsletter together. I provide all the articles and content and they set out the layout for me so it’s all ready for me to send out. I have often given them tight deadlines and they have always been met and I’ve been very happy with work and the service that they provide."Paul Judge
"I have used Alison’s services in the past and can safely say that she is not only professional but also gets the job done in a very efficient manner.
Alison brings the right personality, the right voice and a great work ethic to every task. I have recommended her to others in the past and will continue to do so."Paul Landa
