Invaluable asset to any business

Lisa has many outstanding qualities which make her an invaluable asset to any business. She joined the National Asthma Council Australia as my Executive Assistant in my final years there before my retirement as CEO in 2017. She demonstrated great skill in keeping me organized, my appointments on track, correspondence prepared, events and travel organised and acted as the Board officer with great efficiency, preparing agendas and documents, and organizing the AGM. She also very skillfully took on the social media response role in the organization, working on this daily under the direction of the Communications Manager. Directors and external stakeholders regularly commented on her effectiveness and diplomacy. Additionally, she was experienced at maintaining the organisation’s risk management plan and keeping it updated by ensuring senior management regularly reviewed it with her. She was adept at recognizing and acknowledging her own skills, and planned to move into a more independent role, discussing this with me and, in her usual supportive manner, waiting until after my retirement to do this. I thoroughly recommend her in her new role of virtual assistant and business support partner.
