Here’s 60 seconds with Polly Buckley.
Name: Polly Buckley
Area of expertise: Webinar Production, Online Marketing, PA, Administration
When & why did you join Get Ahead VA: I joined in May 2021 having finished a very long-term contract with the IoD. Many of the IoD members I am still in contact with recommended I speak to Rebecca as they spoke very highly of her and the work produced at Get Ahead VA.
What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA: Before joining Get Ahead VA, I worked for 11 years for the IoD running their Surrey Branch and later being the South Region Administrator. I loved working with IoD members and helping them on their career path as well as delivering high quality events and webinars enabling them to network and learn from each other. I was involved in the day to day running of the branch and region and enjoyed working alongside a passionate team.
Career highlight to date: This is my career highlight. Working as a VA has got to be one of the most exciting moves I have made. No day or client is the same. Every day presents a new challenge and there is still so much to learn. Working with different kinds of people and industries means working with different programmes and platforms. As they say every day is a school day!
Plans for the future: I plan to continue working as a VA and help existing, and hopefully future clients, have more time to concentrate on their business growth.
