Denise Forster

Hi, my name is Denise Forster, I am the founder of On Point Executive Services, specialising in all areas of administration. I fell in love with the idea of being able to work remotely and work while travelling around our wonderful country…one day!

After working as a Senior Executive Assistant for a number of years, I had the opportunity to take voluntary redundancy from a large corporate organisation. This gave me the opportunity to fulfil my
dream and set out on the journey of becoming an Executive Virtual Assistant working while on the road.

With many years of experience working with Senior Executives in many fast-paced corporate environments, providing integral administrative support, I offer professionalism, reliability and flexibility to suit my clients’ individual requirements, enabling them to concentrate on their areas of expertise within their businesses.

I add value to my clients, so that they can benefit from my experience and skills.

Executive Officer & Company Secretary

Victoria Frankel

Victoria Frankel is the Founder and Director of Victoria Eve. & Co. specialising in executive virtual office management and administrative services for entrepreneurs, start-ups, and small business owners.

Victoria started Victoria Eve. & Co. against a backdrop of over 16 years of administrative experience under her belt, including 6 years as a PA/EA at the executive level and 7 years at the managerial level. She is also a high school art teacher, and what both experiences have ultimately taught her about herself is that she is a “helper” and gets a lot of satisfaction out of helping people get to where they want and need to be in life, whether it’s a student, colleague, or a CEO.

Going virtual in 2020 was not only timely in light of COVID-19 but was also a lifestyle decision. Having reached a point in life where family life is just as important as work achievements, Victoria Eve. & Co. has enabled her to meet both needs.

Victoria loves what she does. She loves to help her clients and their business be the best that they can be and gets much fulfillment in knowing that, by providing work of the virtual kind, she is also helping her team live the best lives of their own choosing!
