I know some people think testimonials are just filler but I don't.
For stories of those who have worked with me, read on...
"Since engaging with Katherine and Assistia, our Coworking space behaviour and systems have moved from chaotic startup disarray to thoughtfully-planned, executed, and measured order. I find our weekly catch-ups invaluable - the goals and tasks we set keep me on track and accountable. Working with Katherine has definitely accelerated our community and business growth."
-Graham Nelson, Manifold Co-founder www.manifold.co.nz
"Katherine is a highly organised and multi-skilled individual that has been invaluable for the progression & development of my business. With little guidance or instruction, she understood where I wanted to go with my website/brand and her knowledge in this field is well-informed. Additionally, she offered helpful suggestions that hadn’t crossed my mind. Katherine knows that good web presence is absolutely necessary in the modern era, for your brand and online presence to be recognised and respected. And taking into account her personal time management is second-to-none, rest assured you will be getting value for money!"

"Katherine was a true breath of fresh air to work with, she is both patient & professional, especially with a novice! Full of the smarts to excel in providing a quality outcome that exceeded all expectations. She will work alongside you, taking the time to get to know you, understand your business, what you want to achieve and bring the creative potential into the real. I cannot speak highly enough of her & the services she provides, our website is a triumph. It truly represents us at this moment with the ability to grow, no easy feat when dealing with a new venture with no blueprint. She believes in your vision and cares for her clients creating a simple sustainable process with her warm engaging style. Nothing was a problem, the process was painless, enjoyable and a complete success. We count ourselves lucky to have her on board she has taken us to the next level and we look forward to the future."

"WARNING: Katherine will spoil you! Within the first week, Katherine returned two projects (well before the due date) and provided even more information than required. Katherine is a dutiful researcher, a clear and effective communicator (via email and telephone) and does a superb job of managing expectations and meeting deadlines. She is easy-going, a pleasure to work with and is comfortable sharing new and different perspectives. Katherine has saved me time - allowing me to focus on what's important."

"If you're looking for a virtual assistant, there's NO ONE better than Katherine Blaney. Period. I have very high standards and expect amazing things from my team, and every single day of the 4+ years she has supported me as my assistant she exceeded my every expectation and quite simply rocked my world! Her needs anticipation, attention to detail, 'quick study' learning style, and exceptional communication skills are second to none (oh and did I mention she also happens to be one of the nicest human beings on the planet???). If you're looking to bring on a VA, hiring Katherine is a no-brainer. It'll change your life! It was absolutely one of the very best things I've ever done in my business in the decade it's been operating, and I am truly grateful for her every day."

"Katherine helped Team Azucar Dance Movement to promote the essence of our business which is community centred. Yes we offer Zumba fitness classes and wanted our information to be clear, accurate and easily accessible. Katherine's point of difference is to help your business "make a difference" to truly set you apart as having something unique and inspiring to offer. "

"Katherine has brought a great sense of organization and efficiency to my daily business routine. She is helping me organize files, research for projects, edit and proof documents, and is taking charge of some other administrative tasks so I can focus on work with clients and bigger tasks in my own business. I rely on Katherine's virtual administrative skills to keep me and my business happily productive. She is a great listener, extremely well organized, responsive, trustworthy and fun to work with. I highly recommend Katherine to all enthusiastic entrepreneurs who are ready to take their business to the next level by delegating administrative tasks to a highly skilled assistant."

"I had never thought I would create a website, but with Katherine's encouragement and help, I found the process to be a lot easier than I perceived and I was able to design a site that communicated my values. The way she helped me navigate through the website creating process, and the advice she gave on how to best utilize information on my website has made a huge difference in the response I receive. I recommend Katherine as an excellent assistant!"
