Here’s 60 seconds with one of our VAs, Rosie, an expert in marketing planning and consulting. Now she has brought those skills to Get Ahead VA, and she is here to help your business grow.

Name: Rosie

Areas of expertise: Marketing strategy and planning; writing content; helping businesses to attract new clients and exploit new opportunities (and grow!)

When and why did you join Get Ahead VA? I joined Get Ahead VA in February 2019 because I wished to work in a team, after being self-employed as a marketing consultant for over ten years. I enjoy the variety of clients and am always excited about new challenges.

What did you do before you joined Get Ahead VA? I worked as a marketing manager in various organisations after graduating, starting out in an accountancy practice as their first marketing professional, and then moving from there into IBM and then Vodafone. I worked mostly on channel marketing and developed dozens (if not hundreds) of marketing plans. I implemented and worked on a great deal of direct marketing activity to increase business.

Career highlight to date: I designed and launched a lead generation tool to be used worldwide by over 200 IBM channel partners. I’ve also written my first novel!

Plans for the future: To continue to work at Get Ahead VA and really make a difference to our clients and watch their businesses succeed. I am also able to be a support for my teenage daughter as she approaches her GCSEs. I’d love to see my book published too (not asking for much!).

If your business could benefit from Rosie’s help, or from any of our other VAs, please get in touch on 01483 332220 or We pride ourselves on being the staff you don’t see, but the difference you do.
