Kate Cochrane - Artist
I met Sara through her involvement locally with music and the Arts. I was interested in her work as a PA and asked her to work with me on developing my business as an artist.
Sara is competent in organising websites and files and general admin. Her help for me was around finding potential galleries and online sites through which I could sell my work.
Although we did not work together for long she focused my direction, supported me in simplifying my admin using Excel and clarified a way forward for my business. It was invaluable as a busy artist to have Sara’s support and time along with her understanding as an artist.
I found her to be passionate, organised, punctual, clear-thinking and personable.
Beckington Village Hall
Although having no previous experience of the Booking Secretary role, Sara has proven to be a quick learner and proficient, having the key role of registering and administrating all bookings of the main Hall, the smaller Clifford Suite and the Playing field -in effect operating the whole of our on-line booking service.
As Secretary of our meetings she is very efficient producing prompt, accurate and comprehensive minutes of our meetings. She is also an active and useful contributor to the Committee email exchanges.
I can strongly endorse her work as a professionally competent and yet sociable member of the Beckington Hall team.

Sue Harding - Musician
Sara is inspirational. As a musician herself, she understands what is needed, both to encourage creativity and confidence and to clear a path through through the maze of promotion and business. Sara has helped me to define my goals, to create promotional materials and explore innovative ways of establishing myself as a performing artist. Currently she is booking me gigs and developing my social media profile. I would recommend a conversation with her to discover ways in which she can support your business. Worth every penny.
Sara proved to be a great choice, during my recent illness. She did some essential housework, kept me plied with cups of tea and made a delicious meal. I would recommend her to anyone needing a caring assistant.
Stina Falle - Artist
Sara is a highly efficient & dynamic young woman with an acute intelligence & intuitive grasp of what needs doing. I have been a rather chaotic & confused artist & Sara helped me to get my work photographed, archived & ordered in just 3 days. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a clean sweep, a good declutter &/or reorganisation.

Research and continuing support is excellent; a light to help you through the fog of information that clouds vision and wastes your productive time. Highly recommended.
