Angharad Davies, Cadno Comms

Sarah at Smart Desk provides consistently high quality support on all aspects of my work for big corporate clients, from event management, pulling together copy for newsletters, and setting up meetings, to maintaining accurate stakeholder lists and making contact with groups and organisations. She’s reliable, efficient and always on top of her brief.

Sarah has been supporting me with me business for around a year now. She has been fabulous in all ways. She’s reliable, lovely to spend time with, has great suggestions for streamlining processes and has helped me to ‘archive’ years of materials. My filing is up to date, my accounts are up to date and everything feels calm.

Sarah has also helped me with presentations and some tricky documents as well as being a trusted sounding board for some of my complex work areas. I would recommend her to anyone.

Sarah is a real pleasure to work with. Personable yet always professional; flexible and prompt; and above all she has great eye for detail. I can’t recommend Smart Desk highly enough.

Communities First

Joe Champion, Communities First

I worked with Sarah in February / March 2015, when she provided a freelance transcription service for a series of focus groups that were held at that time.

Sarah displayed excellent professionalism throughout, maintaining good communication with me and responded quickly to changes in the schedule. She had a positive and friendly attitude during and after the project and turned around the transcriptions quickly, helping us to make some tight deadlines.

I would happily recommend her services to anyone who might need them.
