Session 5 – #MyVAVision Shaping your strategy for your VA business
What should you consider for you to thrive and survive as a VA in the future?
From Hashtags and Social Media services to Artificial Intelligence and Digital Nomads - what do the profession's current thought leaders consider the future role and services of a Virtual Assistant to be?
Caroline has been a VA since 2004 in her business, Virtually Sorted. With a background in music and advertising, she worked in the creative industries for over 10 years, both in London and Glasgow. Trying to avoid wearing a suit every day, Caroline switched into entrepreneur mode and has never looked back.
Virtual assistance in the UK was a fledgling industry in 2004, so she worked with a collection of Scottish VAs to educate the business community about virtual working. It rapidly grew to include many virtual assistants from outside Scotland, which prompted a name change to the Society of Virtual Assistants in 2006. SVA provides free advice and support to both new and established VAs through its online forum and website, promoting excellence in the industry.
In her role as founder of SVA, she has previously judged the VA of the Year Awards, runs the UK VA Survey each year and is the UK representative of the world’s first virtual assistant certification programme, VAcertified. SVA is the largest organisation of UK virtual assistants with over 2,500 active members, a forum, regular newsletters, the virtual assistant diary, and regular features to help VAs start and stay in business.
