Welcome to our November news round-up – your chance to look back on the highlights from what has been an amazing month for the team here at SmartPA.
To kick off the month, we were delighted to attend the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. As finalists for the SME Business of the Year Award, the team went down to London to attend the prestigious event. With over 300 SmartPAs working remotely worldwide, we take pride in offering the very best admin and business support to businesses and this nomination was a sentiment to how far we have come. We filmed our trip for a behind the scenes look at how we got on.
Throughout the year we have focused our attention on showing our amazing team and the fabulous workplace we have. This month, we released the second episode of our Roundtable discussion which features five fabulous women from our team here at Head Office – watch the video as they reflect on their careers and their journey so far. Later in November, we also released our SmartPA Head Office Quiz. This was a fun video to film as we questioned everyone in the office on how much they know each other and this amazing place we work (some of the answers will surprise you).
WeWork has been a hot topic in business lately. Our marketing team have been following the rise and fall of WeWork closely and used them as a case study in their analysis of branding. Join us as we take a deep dive into how branding is crucial for all businesses and how your external brand should be reflected internally.
Finally, to wrap up what has been an exciting month for SmartPA, we caught up with one of our newest SmartPAs. You can find out how Nige was feeling a week before he launched his business and how he was doing 3 weeks later – in the same video! In addition to the video with Nige, we have also put together an informational piece about how much a virtual assistant can make where we give a break down of how much a virtual assistant can make full-time and part-time.
