Coffee and a Chat about…Professional Decluttering & Organising
Here at Better Organised HQ we love coffee and chat, so decided to start a series of blogs that take place over a cuppa! The logical choice for our first Q&A is Kate, a Professional Organiser & PA based in Glasgow, and founder of Better Organised…
Q: What do you do?
A: I make clients’ lives easier by helping them to minimise and organise at work or home, so that they get more time and space to do the things they enjoy or that help them to grow their business.
Q:What is your background?
A: I have over twenty years’ experience in administrative support, PA and HR roles across a range of sectors. I’ve also volunteered with local and international charities, and am mum to two energetic young children!
Q: How can you help me?
A: Clients are often too busy, tired and overwhelmed to tackle or complete organisational projects/tasks on their own. In the same way that personal trainers guide, support and motivate clients to achieve their fitness goals, I work alongside clients to provide encouragement and hands-on help to organise practical aspects of their homes, offices or lives. This typically involves decluttering and making things more streamlined and efficient i.e. organising a cupboard or room, putting admin/filing systems in place, or helping a client to prepare for relocation or downsizing.
Q: Why should I hire you?
A: I offer practical and sympathetic help alongside a commitment to professionalism and compliance with industry standards. I am a member of The Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (APDO), am fully insured and registered for data protection, and am committed to the APDO Code of Ethics that includes strict confidentiality.
Q: Is your home stark, clinical and minimalist?!
A: No, I have a family home and like it to be calm, cosy and comfortable! Having said that, everything has its place and I know that being organised makes me feel more relaxed, positive and capable, and therefore able to think more clearly.
Q: What do clients say about the service from Better Organised?
A: I’ll hand over to a recent client to answer this one…!
“There are things we achieved together today that I simply was not succeeding with on my own. Each time I let something go it was like ‘look at all the SPACE I’m gaining! Look how SIMPLE things look now’! It was refreshing and relieving. Instead of chaos and overwhelm, I felt relief, and free and able to cope and manage my life again. Thank you for your very careful help”. (Judy — client, Glasgow)
Q: Sounds great! Where do I go from here?
A: I’m very active on social media and can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. I offer a FREE initial consultation — this can be done in person, over the phone or via Skype or FaceTime. I promise there’s no obligation or hard selling — it’s simply an opportunity to discuss your goals, timescales and budget. Better Organised gift vouchers are also available!
Please call me on 0787 66 44 133 or send a message through Facebook or to firstname.lastname@example.org and take the first step towards getting Better Organised!
