Testimonials

 

I have engaged in Toks’ services for a number of ad-hoc tasks. Whether that’s researching a topic that I need insight on for a meeting, analysing my social media profiles or even sending out Christmas cards to my clients – she always delivers within the agreed timescale and brief. I lead a very busy lifestyle with my various roles and travels, so having Toks on hand to do these tasks for me has been a life-saver. I appreciate her valuable assistance as it means that I can focus on the things in my work that most require my attention.

This is the second time I have used Toks and would highly recommend her – she saved me lots of time to get on with what I do.

Network Marketer, Audrey Jean Paterson

Initially I wasn’t sure how a Virtual PA was going to work. Then I met Toks, by chance, at a conference and we got chatting. She told me that she manages people’s inboxes, diaries and can do support tasks like research. As our company grew, so did my inbox, to a level that required more and more valuable attention from me. I felt I couldn’t sustainably look after it anymore. It was hard to filter what was and wasn’t important.

With Toks managing my email and coordinating things that need my attention or that of other staff, I now feel truly liberated. I can spend more time on the things that really matter, knowing I’ve got someone who would flag things that may still need more urgent attention. I can really recommend Toks as an amazing virtual PA.

I’d just written an ebook in Microsoft Word and I needed help in formatting and publishing my ebook on Amazon. Toks delivered exactly what I needed by the deadline given and also found me lots of great suggestions for marketing it. Her much-needed assistance meant that I could put my head down and focus on writing my main book. I’m very happy to be on Kindle now, and will definitely be in touch with her again when I have other tasks to outsource.

Emotional Recovery Specialist, Altered Dawn CIC

Diligent, friendly, organised, efficient, thorough, accurate. All words you want to associate with a VA and all words I would use to describe Toks and her work. She recently undertook some admin tasks including data entry, researching addresses and creating mailing labels which she did to a high standard and delivered to our agreed deadline. With this in mind, I would recommend Toks if you are looking for general admin support for your small business.

Working with Toks was an absolute pleasure. Toks helped me manage my business while on holiday and was on the ball with every problem that arose while I was away. Complimenting her excellent administration skills, she is an adept problem solver and immediately feels like a long term trusted employee the moment she starts working with you.

Toks is a highly professional and effective VA. Aside from being prompt to fulfil on the requested assignment, she actively engaged to ensure that she had achieved the necessary goals I had set out. I would definitely recommend using her services.

Ronke Lawal

PR and Communications Consultant, Ariatu PR

I needed Toks’ help both virtually and on-site at my new networking event. I made her assistant organiser to moderate the Meetup page, keeping an eye on numbers, replying to comments and also promoting it on social media. We got a great turn-out rate at the event and managed to fill up the room. Whilst my business partner and I were running about picking up speakers from the airport and getting the refreshments sorted, Toks was there to meet and greet the guests and assist with time-keeping. I’m grateful for Toks’ assistance in what turned out to be a successful event that everyone enjoyed.

Toks did an excellent job in helping me to do a Facebook campaign. She has great written and verbal communication skills, is extremely organized, can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure that the job gets done.

Toks was a very quick learner on our recruitment day procedures and using the applicant tracking system when she first started here. She is good at interviewing the candidates and extracting all the right information out of them, as well as objectively assessing their suitability for the role they’ve applied for and collating all the correct information to send off for background screening.

Recruitment Officer, UK Security Company

Toks has made a great contribution here. Her most useful achievement has been creating and keeping a segmented mailing list to facilitate contact with volunteers and supporters. Toks has prepared marketing materials, done data entry and recruitment tracking. She has been reliable and punctual, demonstrating great communication skills and work ethic.

Gardens Co-Ordinator, Edinburgh Charity

I want to say thanks to Toks for assisting me with updating my WordPress website – it’s looking much better to the public now. She has also helped me with creating and editing various Word documents. She is very proactive in finding solutions to any problem and offering useful suggestions to move things forward. I find Toks so easy to work with and I look forward to continuing the build the relationship.

Josie Shakes

Managing Director, ProVibrant Clean

As a creative, actor, filmmaker, producer, the work that I do is not of the typical. In recent years my strategies have taken on a more focused energy and purpose. The writing and producing of my own works has grown in importance. I am also a great believer in the virtual office system and how this philosophy creates more time and security regarding documents, contracts, ease of communications worldwide, environmental benefits and related. It was extremely important that I find a professional, resourceful, friendly Virtual PA who would be a brilliant communicator, gatekeeper, taking initiative on my behalf. I thoroughly recommend Toks and TAVA Services.

Despite the somewhat unusual nature of my work, Toks is a thorough, detailed PA, of exceptional discernment and judgement. There is a need for empathy and patience in my work, in particular communicating with manifold artists, who can be challenging at times. Toks is very astute and capable of working with a variety of personalities and on a diverse range of projects. Toks is a primary member of my small team and as my work expands and grows there is no doubt her contribution will continue to be invaluable.

Aidan Crowley

Actor and Producer, 593illuminati

Toks worked very well with me on a client social media project. She was able to quickly adapt to the software we were using and followed the brief and implementation plan with ease. Toks communicated effectively with me on the design work and posting across 3 platforms. I was very happy with the results of our collaboration and would happily recommend Toks for other VA work.

Louisa Stewart

Owner, Blue Ninja Business Support

Toks helped me to put together an online course that I will be launching in September. She also proofread other documents and helped me to make a speech for a networking event that I will attend later in the year. As English is my second language I do need help to make my documents and guides perfect. I will recommend Toks anytime and probably will use her services in the nearer future.

Claudia Romero Espinosa

Founder, Claudia Romero Coaching

I really enjoyed working with Toks. She is very diligent and is willing to make suggestions for the best. I’ll recommend her any day.

Adisa Amanor-Wilks

Director, Abjel Communications

Toks recently helped me with a few admin services for my business, such as register all my business cards accumulated from my networking for the last 8 months. She provided a very detailed data file and created a CRM that I could use to market my services.

She needed very little direction from me, and instead she took initiative and advised me on the best solutions for my needs. A great quality in my view!

Toks definitely saved me money in that I could concentrate on my business knowing that I could trust her to facilitate and complete the admin work.

Toks also offered me some very useful tools to help me assess what administrative services could be outsourced. I was very impressed by her follow-up and the techniques she suggested.

Thank you again Toks.

Toks recently wrote a blog post in the style of a press release to promote my business ‘RK Creative’. She was very thorough and professional and completed the article by the deadline we had agreed on. In addition to this, she was a very friendly person to work with and produced a very well written document for RK Creative. I am proud to showcase it on my website and social media platforms.

I highly recommend Toks’ blogging services.

Becca Kim

Director, RK Creative

Toks did an excellent job transferring details from 500 business cards to an excel spreadsheet and online CRM as well as investigating automated solutions. Toks was helpful, efficient, and went over and above to get the work done and completed to a high standard. I was especially impressed by her clear communication about job progress and what was possible within the agreed time. Many thanks Toks.

Andy Johnston

Graphic and Brand Designer, Andelad

We had a short contact with Toks as we needed someone to build a new database for our company. In other words desk research. She very quickly understood what was required and undertook the project in a diligent and professional manner. And went further than was expected. We would happily recommend her services as a virtual assistant.

Spencer Cullen

Managing Director, Cullen European Freight

Toks was a very organised worker who was great at quickly learning how to use the different systems and did a lot to help support our busy office. She was vastly efficient at many tasks, from email management and client services to supporting the marketing and website of one of our affiliate companies. Her skills are rather diverse and she always performed to a timely manner. I recommend her without any reservations.
