About Slater PA Services
Hi, I'm Dionne.
I am a Virtual Assistant who provides support to entrepreneurs and small businesses, giving them more freedom to develop their business and spend more time actually living their lives with their loved ones!
Over the last seven years I have worked as an administrator, Office Manager and PA, all within creative companies (my degree is actually in Professional Musicianship). I did this alongside teaching singing on a 121 basis and eventually, I focused purely on that. The teaching business was very successful. I'd put on regular shows and the students would perform at some great events including the official Brighton Christmas Lights turn on, alongside actor Steve Coogan in front of hundreds of people!
However, after more than 5 years of teaching I began to crave a new challenge.
My move back to my hometown in Newcastle from Brighton in June 2017 was the perfect time to make a complete change in my career and for a few months I did not know what my next 'calling' would actually be. I did however know that I wanted to continue helping people. I also knew that I was a freelancer at heart and a normal 9-5 office job sounded about as fun as sticking pins in my eyes!
I am a member on various Facebook business networking groups and would regularly see small business asking for ad-hoc help on a range of various tasks, from helping with their admin workload, to helping with their website and social media content. I began to learn about the world of Virtual Assistants and LOVED the idea of it.
I decided to test the waters with Virtual Assisting by contacting a few small business owners that I already knew, to see if there was anything I could help them with. A couple of them got straight back to me and Slater PA Services was born.
I ADORE being a Virtual Assistant. Helping people is what I live for and whilst spending hours managing your social media or admin might be the biggest bane of your life, I absolutely love it!
So, if you’re interested in freeing up some of your own time and you want a dedicated and reliable Virtual Assistant to help, you've come to the right place.
