About Me

Janet Walker's Home OfficeI have first hand experience of supporting executives daily facing the challenges of funding constraints, tensions between business and ministry and the difficulties of finding suitably qualified staff sympathetic to the organisation’s work and ethos. Specifically:

  • more than 25 years as a Secretary or Personal Assistant working in a professional management institute, a worldwide Scripture publishing charity and a Christian travel business – all at Director or Senior Leadership Team level
  • supported the organisation of six cruises, co-ordinating the programme and other arrangements with the Master, Senior Officers and crew on board ship
  • project managed Western European language publications from initial market research and finding translators to typing, proof-reading and distribution
  • recorded Minutes and written papers for a diverse range of Committees as well as at International Conference and Board/Council/Governor level
  • supported and built relationships with holiday ministry leaders and with European evangelists representing a wide range of church affiliations
  • I worship at St Stephen’s Church, Twickenham.  I am Assistant Company Secretary and Clerk to the Board of Directors at a Multi-Academy School Trust and I’m a Charity Trustee; I founded JanetWalker.Net Virtual Assistance in 2007
  • I’m a Fellow of the Institute of Administrative Management with its Continuing Professional Development scheme, and a member of the London PA Network and the Society of Virtual Assistants.
