VA Awards – South West England 2015

With last year’s South of England winner Dawn Lane of Your Office Online moving out of the region in the last 12 months, and 2014 Runner Up, Amanda Johnson of Your Executive Secretary professionally stepping aside as a supporter and presenter at the VA Conference, the door was open for more multi-talented VAs to move into the spotlight for the South West.

In front of an audience of the Exeter PA Network, our CEO John Palmer announced the finalists of VA of the Year for the South West of England, as sponsored by The winner for 2015, Donna Redshaw of Diamond PA Services, based in the Swindon area (pictured) received her award from Rebecca Eccles of Michelmores.

2015’s Runner Up for the South West VA Awards is Exeter based Rachel Guyat of More Than Just a PA,  previously winner in 2012 of the National  Outstanding VA (under 2.5 years in business). Unfortunately, Rachel was unable to attend the event, and her client Judy Salmon received the Runner-Up VA Award for South West England on Rachel’s behalf.

The journey continues … Donna moves on the VA Awards National Finals for England at Office*2015.
