Hi, I'm Barbara, owner of The Back Office. I've had a portfolio career... Accounts, Office Management, Executive PA Company Director, HR Consultant - across a diverse range of companies of all shapes and sizes. Because of my eye for detail and penchant for nit-picking, I was often tasked with due diligence during acquisitions and takeovers and managed copious amounts of paperwork in extensive corporate and private litigation. I also lectured in Business Studies and Secretarial Skills for 10 years on a part time basis for a college in West London where I'd previously studied. I've had some amazing and colourful experiences during my career, gained a great skill set and considerable insight... Not much surprises me! These days I enjoy bringing all these skills together to provide comprehensive support to business owners and individuals, who can benefit from my skills and experience. I love walking, gardening, cooking, reading and travel, and although I'm a totally grounded person, I like to have some fun in the process.
