OUR FIRST KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KATHY SOULSBY, SUCCESSFUL VA & AUTHOR

Kathy will be talking to us ‘About The Highs & Lows Of Growing A VA Business Including Working With Associates’

ABOUT KATHY – Kathy became a Virtual Assistant in 2014 fitting it into the evenings and weekends alongside two PA part time PA roles which made a whole one! She went fulltime in 2015 after shedding first one job and then the second as the business grew.

Working mainly with consultants, coaches and trainers, she takes on all kinds of work, from diary management, blogs, CRMs and invoicing to cake ordering and voice-overs. She now works with a team of associates so she can take on bigger jobs.

In May 2017, she published Virtually Painless, a humorous and slightly bonkers book about moving from employed PA to freelance VA. Covering the highs and lows of freelance life, it’s aim to answer the questions “Can I do that?” and more importantly “Do I want to do that?”

When she isn’t sweating over an online timesheet, Kathy can usually be found in a field with a collie or two.

OUR SECOND KEYNOTE SPEAKER: KATE LATHAM-WHITELY AND GILLIAN HASTON, CONTENT SOS

Kate joins us from Content SOS to discuss ‘Content – Whether For Your Own Business Or Work You Do For Your Clients, Creating Great Content Can Be A Challenge’.
