Being hired as an assistant is about conveying strength and sensitivity

Can we make this more compelling?

  1. When 200 emails come in a day I can handle about 170 of these, draft 20 replies for the others for review and be sure that the top 10 on each day are with you the moment they arrive :)
  2. If you’re stressed on little things that take up too much of your time I’d love to work through which of these we could try delegating to a trusted person. I believe strongly that whilst I’m not going to give you back any more time, I can give back to you the precious headspace needed to focus on the two or three things that matter most
  3. I know people are the problem and the solution, I can excel at making sure you other people are mindful of your time and effort, I’ll guard against poorly defined meetings and can be proactive at seeking where you can be to maximise time each day. I believe we can treat people as a currency and work together to only allow the highest value moments to take place
