ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT SERVICES               Best In Class Executive Office Management, C-Suite Support and Internal Operations

The administrative operations support services I provide range from basic office administration to the more complex Executive Suite services.  Because I bring over 25 years of administrative expertise to my clients, I can safely say that few administrative functions are outside my skill set.

 

Internal Operations

Internal Operations can be the most time consuming and energy draining tasks for business owners.  My solutions are inspired and innovative - making the whole process more streamlined and most efficient.

  • Maintaining calendars, documents and files
  • Arranging domestic and international travel
  • Organizing conferences, seminars and presentations
  • Creating letters, faxes, proposals and more
  • Prepare mail merges and mailings
  • Prepare PowerPoint presentations
  • Organizing work flow and processes

Business Start-up

The myriad details required to start a business and become functional can be overwhelming when you're also trying to market your product/service and secure your first clients.  My experience with Federal and State registration requirements, licensing and mandatory insurance, taxes and business fees, and other seemingly minor details can reduce some stress over getting these things done.

 

Internet Presence

With the way social media continues to morph, grow and build upon itself - keeping up can sometimes feel like your running a losing race. I will help you decide which online options are best for your specific needs and handle all of the administration.  Please note: this is not a website-design task.
