Do you run your own business & struggle to find time?Admin Services
Boatman Admin Services Ltd was formed by John & Emma Boatman in October 2015 to operate alongside their existing independent financial advisory business, Boatman Financial Ltd.
John formed Boatman Financial Ltd in 2011 – a culmination of nearly 20 years of experience in the independent financial advice sector. He began his career in 1993 and has built a reputation and client base throughout Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and the South of England.
Until April 2015 Emma was employed by a large pharmaceutical company for over 10 years within a number of different roles where she gained significant experience supporting the top level senior executives. Her experience there included working with HR, Legal, Product Development, admin, travel organisation before moving to a role in clinical operations. Emma is known for being very organised, efficient and diligent. She is the busy person who gets stuff done!
Emma also writes her own lifestyle blog (Happy Wise Owl)
"Literally, worth her weight in gold!'
I could not recommend Emma highly enough. She is a lovely lady with a multitude of skills, all of which she excels at in my opinion. She is the most efficient and organised of people I have had the pleasure to work with. I was drowning in admin and other projects that were important but weren't my 'day to day' work, I had to try and do this work late in the evenings or at weekends. I was introduced to Emma and within days of off loading my 'to do list', she ran with it and took control. She prioritised, organised and worked....hard. Soon, she was ticking off work that had been outstanding for months if not longer. Finally, I felt like I was back in control of the business and could have a life again. She researches thoroughly and always returns work for approval far sooner than expected. In fact, Emma turned around work quicker than I could prepare the next project for her! The work was always of a high standard, I couldn't fault it. If you run a small business and are still working long hours to get things done, you should contact Emma. You will wish you had done so months ago.
To top off an already faultless service, Emma is such a lovely person. She exudes integrity and, professionalism but is warm and funny. I always looked forward to our meetings knowing they would be productive but never boring.
You can't underestimate the benefits of having Emma as part of your business, large or small. You all need Emma whether you know it yet or not!"
"Emma is more than a virtual assistant to us, she is nothing short of miraculous. Without her hard work and effort, the office would be a mess. She takes all the pressure off the admin side of the business so I can concentrate on the daily running of the company. Thanks to Emma handling the paperwork, I’ve had time to start a new business unit and make it profitable. I’ve also been able to focus on the art of copywriting and learn new skills. I even have more time outside of work to enjoy the people and things I love. The only thing I regret is not having Emma on board from the start!
I highly recommend Emma to anyone who is wondering how to regain their sanity and make their business more streamlined and successful.”
"I couldn't run my business without Emma, or I could but I would get a lot less done and have rather a few more grey hairs. Emma is so capable and can put her hand to anything, I send her a vast variety of work, from projects, admin, social media and bookings. Emma is a fantastic communicator, I know when the work will be done, often before I need it and more to the point she always nails the brief! Its like having my own PA but without the hassle of being an employer, I'm really quite addicted to using Emma and she doesn't charge me the earth, so I will just continue to delegate more and more. ”
“Emma is a proactive diligent person who supported me in a busy HR department during a period of change and development. Emma was accountable for a number of different aspects including:
– liaising with recruitment organisations, coordinating internal diaries, and ensuring room and materials were available, collating interview notes and writing to successful and unsuccessful candidates
– coordinating training, maintaining data base of requests, liaising with training providers, booking hotels and training venues, ensuring candidates had the appropriate documentation pre and post event
Emma has the rare ability to be able to juggle different activities and priorities, co-ordinate disparate diaries, manage different egos and still deliver the product required. (she is also a nice person too!)”
“We have known John Boatman for many years and have been delighted with the service that we have had from Boatman Financial Ltd. The return on our investments have been ahead of the market and we have always received constructive and friendly advice. We have chosen Boatman Admin Services Ltd to handle our wills and estate administration as we trust implicitly in their advice and guidance following our experience of dealing with John Boatman regarding our investments.”
“Emma was my personal assistant for over 10 years providing all the necessary support for a busy executive role that involved frequent global travel and a packed and ever changing diary. Emma was professional, organised, forward thinking and invariably able to fix my business life whatever the circumstances. I have no hesitation is recommending her abilities in busy administration and executive support.”
“Emma is a true admin angel - she has stepped in and helped me with the repetitive tasks that I was struggled to put the time towards. I have sent her a box of receipts, social media, business cards and numerous adhoc thoughts. You send her an email or give her a call, and it gets done - simply brilliant”
