How does it work?
Virtual Executive Assistants carry out most of the activities that a personal assistant and executive assistant carry out. In addition to PA & EA support LHF Connections provides governance, business start-up and strategy support.
With cloud-based software, using a Virtual Executive Assistant is straightforward and our service agreement guarantees confidentiality. To get started, we suggest a scoping call to discuss your needs, explore how you like to work, and if our working styles are compatible. The next step is on-boarding which involves an introduction to the business, relevant systems and confirmation of areas of responsibility.
VEA's typically have numerous clients and work flexibly to meet the needs of all clients. To ensure your needs are met, a number of engagement options are available - ad hoc assistance, a set number of hours a week or a nominated day every week.
Australian based expert executive support with over twenty
years of EA experience
One of the advantages of using a VEA is flexibility! This flexibility extends to pricing structures to match your business needs without the liabilities of a permanent staff member. The majority of our clients are based on monthly rates with fixed hours, bringing peace of mind and a clear view of the investment. We have set hourly rates (available for ad hoc and fixed commitments) and are very happy to discuss package options to address your unique requirements.
Hiring administrative support comes with hidden costs for businesses; from superannuation, annual leave, sick leave, equipment, and overheads. With a VEA you can skip the expenses and get the benefit of over 20 years of experience. It's a win-win.
As President of Hornsby Chamber of Commerce, I have had the pleasure of working with Laura for a number of years and would highly recommend her. She is dedicated, professional and highly knowledgeable in many areas of running the backend of a business and association. Laura is motivated, with exceptional organisational skills and I have often benefitted from her ability to keep us on track to meet vital deadlines.
