Here’s 60 seconds with one of our VAs Beverley, a marketing and project management specialist who has recently joined our team to lead our expansion in Scotland:
Name: Beverley McMillan
Area of expertise: Marketing and project management
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I was delighted to join the Get Ahead VA team in March 2016 after coming across the business online. As a busy mum, work-life balance can always be an issue and the ethos of Get Ahead VA really appealed to me. Get Ahead VA are quite open about the fact that the majority of their VA’s are mums who have carved out excellent careers but after having children they are looking for more flexibility.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: I have worked in various project management and marketing roles during my career. I have concentrated on the creative industries, working in television and film production and marketing and event management positions. Based in Glasgow, I work part time for BAFTA Scotland as an events producer and regularly produce masterclasses, debates, previews and screenings.
Career highlight to date: I have been very blessed that my working life has been filled with many exciting opportunities. In the past I worked with a small team to encourage film productions to shoot in Glasgow and then helped to shut down the city centre for high speed car chases. I have spoken at an international conference in Las Vegas and managed to secure that same conference for Glasgow the following year. I now work with highly experienced film and television practitioners to ‘Give something back’ to young new talent, which is really rewarding.
Plans for the future: Be home for dinner every night with my family!
