I have been working with Fiona at the team for a number of months. The service that is provided is brilliant, many talented people who can help with your day to day business needs. What I love is when I have something urgent they are there to support at the drop of a hat! I cannot recommend them enough.

They are currently supporting us to set up and migrate data from one CRM to a new one. Thank you to both Mel and Fiona for the work you do, we really feel like you are both a key part of our business!

Get Ahead have been providing admin support to me, helping manage both emails and Trello boards. They also support with client board meetings, pulling reports together for me ahead of the meetings and typing out the minutes and actions. Fiona and the team are a pleasure to work with and I love working with them!

Not just an FD

I can’t recommend Fiona Ibbetson and her team at Get Ahead VA Leeds highly enough! I had a tricky project that was making me crazy and creating loads of stress, so knew I needed to get help. Fiona and her team solved the issue on time and on budget, responding with a solution that was better than I expected. The communication was always quick, professional, friendly and ever so helpful. With so much varied talent on her team, I’m sure Fiona can help with most any admin, tech, marketing, or other business support need you have.

I’ve been working with Fiona and the team for a number of months now and the results have been brilliant. As a small business I feel I have a support network around me that I can tap into as and when I need. The wealth of expertise is fantastic. Fiona has helped introduce processes into the business and her team have recently helped implement a digital marketing strategy. I wouldn’t be without them.

As part of the launch of BuBul, I planned a series of LinkedIn posts and wanted some original BuBul graphics to accompany the posts. Once I had gathered some key statistics about the SME market, I turned to Fiona Ibbetson and her team to produce the graphics. My reaction to their work: “Fiona and her team did an amazing job for us. Twice the quality I expected at half the price and in half the time with fantastic customer service. It was an absolute joy to be a client and I’m already planning the next project for them!

I was recommended to speak to Fiona about getting a VA when it was all quite new to me – my business was growing, but I wasn’t sure how many hours I’d need a month. Fiona put me completely at ease and matched me up with Hazel, who’s been outstanding in her support and taken on more as the months have gone by. She manages our customer service emails and the orders database (no small feat!) and liaises with our fulfilment centre. I really appreciate that Get Ahead are also able to provide cover when Hazel’s on holiday, so the support is year round. Thank you again for supporting me!
