Christelle has been working as my virtual assistant for some time now and has been consistently responsive, proactive and very reliable. Working in both French and English, she’s able to manage my personal affairs with great professionalism. She always acts in my best interests, I trust her implicitly and on several occasions, her attention to detail has contributed in real financial terms to my personal business ventures. Her support is invaluable and gives me peace of mind that the things I don’t have time to focus on are being taken care of. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

I send you a brochure describing the terms that apply to each engagement as well as an invoice for the chosen pack.
