The Nod - Testimonials

Dr Carolin Barth

Dr Carolin Barth, CEO &  Biotech/Pharma Advisor

Gilly is absolutely amazing! We moved as a family from overseas to the UK in 2021 and right from the start she was there to help up with literally everything (helping us find an Airbnb, then a house rental, schooling for my kids, organizing the removals company, orchestrating the move, etc.). She is incredibly pro-active and identifies potential issues way before they even occur and she is super responsive (really 24/7) – when my son fell and we needed to go to the hospital on the weekend, she was there to guide us to the best place – when we had a water leakage in the house, she came and organised the plumber on the same day…she is absolutely brilliant and always looks for the best solution. Her customer orientation is superb and we trusted her more than 100% - and enjoyed every minute we interacted with her.

Unfortunately, we move back to Switzerland last year and could not take her with us – still trying to convince her to move but without success so far…!

You and Your Household PA are seriously a MUST have not a NICE to have. Supporting with such an array of tasks and being the most incredible asset. 

Gilly and I are committee members with the Strategic PA Network. Gilly is one of those people you automatically gravitate towards. She has such a warm, infectious and kindness to her. So when the opportunity presented itself to hire a Virtual Assistant I couldn't think of anyone better to support me with my venture. I have been working with Gilly since March last year and her support has been invaluable. She is totally aligned with my vision and passion, my go to confidant and wizard. I know I can rely on Gilly wholeheartedly and that's the most precious commodity. Gilly has simply given me piece of mind.

I attended The PA Show 2021 where Gilly was a speaker in the VA Theatre.Her presentation was incredibly brave, motivational and inspiring, I felt privileged to hear the story that she shared that day. Her style was down to earth and captured my attention from the start. Her talk was both entertaining and moving providing a good perspective for both personal and professional life. After her talk I was able to share some time with Gilly which was greatly appreciated.I hope she continues to provide such inspiring and passionate speeches.

Excellent podcast Gilly, you’re a natural.  Letting go of the ‘what ifs’ and embracing ‘if not now…when?...’ very powerful.

'Going the extra mile' is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Gilly. I have known her personally and professionally for over 30 years, and her attention to detail and organisational skills make her a fabulous asset to any organisation or individual seeking her services. She is the epitome of discretion, incredibly resourceful and great fun too! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her.
