A little bit about me……
I’m a proactive and smart worker who can offer your business the support it needs to grow and succeed.
I left my job as a PR & Marketing Executive to set up Octopus Small Business Solutions and I now work from my home on the beautiful Somerset/Dorset border. However, I work virtually, so wherever you are please feel free to get in touch.
My Career and Experience
I have been managing administration demands from the early days of my career. Which is where my love for a paper to-do list and my ability to multi-task like nobody’s business was born!
The skills and knowledge I gained as an Administrator and Marketing Coordinator were a valuable foundation for my move into a role as a Public Relations & Marketing Executive.
I am fortunate enough to have gained experience in a variety of Marketing activities and over my years within the corporate world I worked with some well-known brands and titles; Grand Designs, Restoration Man, DIY SOS, Real Homes. And briefed, developed and project managed many marketing projects, including; brochure redesigns, online films, infographics, product launches, new websites, events & exhibitions.
More recently I have been working with more and more clients as a Personal Assistant. A varied and exciting role covering daily managment and all things admin with a focus on achieveing results and outcomes that count.
Behind every activity and role across my career there has always been the pin point coordination and admin elements that I thrive on.
In essence, I enjoy successfully coordinating both detail and people – whether that be on the admin or marketing side of things!

“I really enjoyed working with Portia on the requirements for my businesses Social Media/Marketing platform. She’s very experienced and was committed to the job in hand; everything I asked from her, she delivered.
When I first spoke with Portia she really listened and invested herself in learning about what we do and what it was that I was ultimately after as the end result.
I would recommend Portia and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
