For 2 years now Jo and Lucy have been invaluable virtual members of the URSA team.
As a small but growing SME, they have effortlessly taken on each challenge set, providing day to day admin and account management support, liaising with suppliers on my behalf, arranging logistics, and creating monthly reports. They are safe pair of hands, delivering each task set on time and with precision and expertise. Having them on board has freed up my much needed time and allowed me to focus on the future growth of the business. Thank you Jo and Lucy!

I was overloaded with work and Jo was recommended to me by a friend. She immediately understood my needs and how to help and just got on with it! She works in a totally organised and efficient way - the perfect virtual assistant!
Sarah Wilson, Founder - Hackney Textiles
Working with Jo has been absolutely brilliant and beneficial for me and my business with Jo managing a high volume of emails, requests and a crazy diary. Jo has literally saved my sanity! My inbox and schedule are now organised and for the first time in a long time i feel a sense of calm and control that important aspects of my business are being managed by someone trustworthy. Jo was integral in co-ordinating a major event for us which was an absolute success much to her help and support. I highly recommend her services! "

CCMe has been providing a virtual assistant service for my therapy practice for six months now. They have implemented systems for responding to clients, booking appointments and following up on outstanding issues saving me time and money. CCMe have also consolidated my invoicing and accounts which has resulted in a much more streamlined and efficient service for my clients and a far more productive business for me. I highly recommend CCMe to anyone wishing to focus on the practical elements of their business while having all administrative tasks taken care of.

"Working with Jo has been incredible. Highly professional but also really 'gets my business'. To have someone as an extension of my team to delegate to has made such a difference - I am really being able to get 'out' of my business. I cannot recommend Jo's expertise highly enough."

I have found Jo to be incredibly valuable to work with. She is always proactive and reliable. I find her support truly helpful and time-saving. I warmly recommend her services.

"Jo provides a superb level of support to me personally and that of my business. Jo is able to manage my diary, and emails (for which I have many), arranging events, dinners - even a stag do! I cannot recommend Jo highly enough and is a god-send to anybody that wants to get their life back from the digital communications barrage & take care of all the small things - that are very often, very big things."
Adrian Brown, CEO - Vascular Perspectives
'Jo is great to work with. She is upbeat, positive, collaborative and somehow seems to find time for all of my requests no matter what they are. Jo, has great attention to detail, works quickly and always hits deadlines. Crucially, she always follows things through.
I would recommend Jo, without hesitation'

"Jo and Lucy are superb, extremely professional, and such a valuable support to have. After a clear brief from me and some advice from Jo on how to coordinate diaries, she made all the appropriate contacts and set things in motion for me - saving hours of my own time. I would not hesitate to recommend the service to all start ups, entrepreneurs, or simply companies who need to outsource additional tasks in a very efficient and professional way."

"Jo Thurston provides PA support to myself at Cartesian. I also worked with Jo at Virgin Media where she covered for my PA when necessary . I find Jo to be discreet, efficient and super organised. My diary runs seamlessly with her help."
Paul Rusby, Executive Director - Commercial EMEA at Cartesian
"Jo worked as my Executive Assistant for 10 years. She was consistently excellent - indeed, she was the best PA that I have ever worked with. Enthusiastic, highly organised and affable, she was a huge asset to me and to my team throughout that time. Jo's work extended far beyond diary management to event organisation, charity events and wider team organisation. She was hugely respected and popular across the business.
I can recommend Jo without the slightest hesitation."
Jon James, Exec Director, Broadband and TV Virgin Media
"Jo is an excellent personal assistant demonstrating initiative, leadership and strong organisational skills. She has a vibrant and positive personality which always helped bring the whole team together. Jo also demonstrated the strength of character to manage many different personalities and stakeholders."
Darren Sellwood, Senior Commercial Manager
"I hired Jo at CCMe to organise a large party at my house. I wanted a big celebration with friends and family travelling from all over the country. Jo suggested a theme which would encourage people to join in the fun and let their hair down! She sourced great props and decorations, and organised a finger buffet for the catering - again adding to the theme. I didn't need to worry about a thing as everything was taken care of, from organising the invitations and RSVPs, to accommodating dietary requirements and most importantly, ensuring there was enough drink flowing freely on the night. The house was transformed with drapes and lighting and all I had to do was get ready. I will definitely be using CCMe London Virtual Assistant's to help me with my next party - I'm excited already!
