We have enjoyed working with Jen. She has been an integral part of ensuring our board is fully informed of our compliance obligations, keeping us to task and practicing good governance. Jen is always professional and is willing and ready to help us with whatever our board and business needs. We are happy to support Jen, as she has supported us through Bike Glendhu's operational phase. We are delighted to have her on board as we transition to our true governance roles as directors.
Jen is exceptionally diligent, thoughtful and highly experienced. Her Absolute Gems service has been a life saver for my growing business - with support received for setting-up systems, documentation and reporting plus much more. I've also used the remote Board Secretary service, which worked really smoothly. It's genuine relief knowing that I've got a capable and reliable PA service getting my work done when I'm busy doing other things!
I was so pleased to discover Jen and the absolute gem she is. With her help my career has launched. Her professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. I’m sure we will work together for many years to come.
Jen was recommended to me when I was looking for someone to assist with company secretarial work for two companies. She has been very efficient from day one and it has been a pleasure to work with her since. The idea of a ‘secretary’ taking notes at a board meeting might seem outdated to some, but Jen has been able to free up board time and attention in a way that makes everyone even more productive. I would not hesitate to recommend Jen to others.
Jen is my virtual EA. As a director of an Investment and corporate advisory company my clients are diverse both in terms of their operations (MetService to Karma Cola) and their needs. My chair and director responsibilities have demanding deadlines and the need for clear and professional communications. Quality and timely documents are mandatory. Keeping across the activities requires disciplined support. Jen is outstanding in fulfilling these requirements remotely – it was over six months of working together before we met in person. I would commend her to anyone with high standards and a sense of humour.
Absolute GEMS operates as an extension of our own business and most of the time we feel like one team. Whenever we need help with professional presentations and proposals or board secretariat work, we turn to Jen Butler at Absolute GEMS. Jen is creative, clever and clear about her passion for excellent support services and governance. One of her key skills is getting into the mindset and culture of each client, and tailoring her services to meet their needs. She can provide executive support too, if you need it – and tries to stay one step of ahead of me! We have worked together across a wide range of sectors and businesses, and she understands them all.
Jen was employed by our firm as my Executive Personal Assistant in January 2014. Jen has a wide range of experience across a number of fields. She has strong IT skills, particularly in the Microsoft Office Suite of products. Jen’s is experienced in providing secretarial services for companies and other organisations and her strengths also include organising functions and research projects. Jen has an enquiring mind, is willing to learn and is prepared to question something she doesn’t think is correct. Jen is a very accommodating person, coming in early or working late to assist me meet deadlines. I have been encouraging Jen to set up her own company, and so she resigned at the end of March 2019 and established Absolute Gems Limited. We now contract Jen’s services though her company.
