About

“Supportive by nature, I get a big buzz out of helping someone succeed.”
Natalie Guerin, Pebble

I set up Pebble in 2006 as a premium virtual executive support service for entrepreneurs, start-ups, and owners of established small businesses. Pebble soon evolved into providing all aspects of business support, using knowledge and experience gained during the 30 years I have worked within this field.

Today, working primarily with professional companies, I provide operational support, executive assistance and short-term project management for small businesses, start-ups, and entrepreneurs. The work carried out allows you to focus on your area of expertise, making your demanding lives easier.

More recently Pebble has broadened its horizons and has launched Know Your Numbers. I have always understood the importance of numbers within my business but wasn’t aware how many business owners and entrepreneurs are not on top of theirs. Numbers and data are the crux of business planning and strategy. Often, business owners are missing valuable growth and profit opportunities by not understanding what their numbers are telling them. This is where I want to help. As a small business owner myself, I know how hard it is to be able to carry out every role needed to run a successful business. I want to work with these inspiring people to ensure their energies, investment and planning are being focussed in the correct areas of their business allowing them to grow, scale up and flourish.

How can I help?

Potential Problem

You want to grow your business but want to ensure the most effective processes are in place and documented first.

You are spending too much of your time on business administration, time that could be spent developing your business.

You want to grow your business, but you are unsure which are the most profitable services you provide, and how to make the most of seasonal trends.

Your website, proposal, and regular business templates are out of date, preventing you from confidently marketing your business.

Proposed Solution

Working with you, and your team, I will analyse processes, agree the most effective way of working and document process flows.

Delegating day to day admin tasks and setting up robust systems, such as creating templates, eases your workload and saves valuable time.

With regular analysis of your finances, you will have a clear picture of the most, and least, profitable offerings, and any trends in your business.

With regular reviews of your website, and accompanying documents, you will have a suite of documents that complement each other.

Helping to make your business a success

Having worked in the world of business support for more than 30 years, I have gained a huge amount of experience, skill, and knowledge, working with an array of clients.

I spent seven years at Diageo working as a PA and event co-ordinator and have previously worked as a PA to royalty. After setting up Pebble, I worked as a project co-ordinator for a leading US investment bank and a top tier oilfield service company.

The high level of standards of excellence, accuracy and confidentiality demanded during these contracts have set Pebble’s standards and are provided to all clients and projects. As are the skills, knowledge and experience learnt through the years.

If you’re an entrepreneur or the owner of a small company, I am here to support you in making your business a success.
