Vanessa brings a high level of organisation, pragmatism, flexibility and good humour to the role of Exec Assistant, she's fabulous at building relationships, and her tact and diplomacy skills are outstanding. Vanessa was my first Exec Assistant and made my work life immeasurably easier, smoothing the way and making sure that all her tasks were done efficiently and with aplomb. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Naomi Dickson, Chief Executive


Vanessa has been a huge help to us over the past year and would highly recommend her as a virtual assistant. She was responsible for liaising with our clients, following up approvals and maintaining our task management system. We recently transitioned to a new custom built database and Vanessa was invaluable in this transition, ensuring all open projects were accurately moved to the new system. We wish her all the best on her future projects!

As you know, and as I’ve told you Vanessa – you have made my work life run so much more smoothly in the time we’ve worked together and I know that the board calendar, meetings etc have run very smoothly as a result of your hard work.  The senior team have also benefitted from your efficiency so a big thank you from everyone!!!

I'm going to miss working with you. Thank you for everything you've done and for your fantastic diary organisation skills - they are going to be sorely missed.

Thank you so much for all your help Vanessa & for providing an efficient and well managed service. I couldn’t have managed our office move without your help – it has been a pleasure working with you. I will most certainly recommend you and will be in touch if I need any further assistance.

I'm very happy to work more with Vanessa in 2022. It gives me peace of mind and I admire her seniority, organisational talent, flexibility, patience (actually a lot of ;)) and being proactive at the same time!

Thanks for moving things forward.

I work in the film industry where everything is needed yesterday or the day before that! On a particularly busy production, the filming schedule switched from London to Hungary and I needed to find local suppliers in Budapest asap. I knew I didn't have the time to do it myself so I rang Vanessa at Lessen the Load and within 24 hours she had researched and verified a list of Hungarian companies for me to contact. Vanessa is thorough, detailed, calm and most importantly lovely to work with. I can highly recommend her.

Vanessa was a great help with my social media campaign.  She was very organised and thorough, and used her initiative wisely.  I will certainly be using her again later.

I am very happy with the work you’ve completed for me so far. I could have sat for hours upon hours trying to proof read my own work, and not only would that have been stressful and tiring, it would probably still have contained errors. It has left me feeling way more confident about launching the course. I’m keen to continue working with you on similar and new projects.

I have used Vanessa’s services many times over the past few years. She is the most organised person I know with incredible attention to detail and meticulous planning. She has helped me to organise events on numerous occasions and has information and access to many suppliers. 

Vanessa is an expert in the use of social media and is regularly advising me on different techniques to use or sites to subscribe to. 

She also has an excellent eye for fashion and what suits.  She understands my concerns and tastes and knows the image I am trying to achieve. I recently used her services to shop for work clothes on a specific budget. She had a clear idea of what shops to take me to and was honest and careful with her opinion, always being budget conscious.   Once lock-down is over I am going to get Vanessa in to go through my wardrobe – where I see individual items, she sees outfits.

Vanessa is friendly, honest and reliable and I do not hesitate in recommending her.

Vanessa did some work for Hyde Tutoring over a 2 month period. She is hard working and clearly wants to make Lessen the Load a success. She is also keen to learn new skills and to take on more tasks! I wish her all the best with her business.
