As the founder of a handful of companies under the Little Sun Group, I travel a lot for work and travel management needs to be on point. But my time is so limited, and I tend to postpone things that I don’t find immediately important. I used to have a ton of travel receipts lying around, boarding cards that got lost, to the point where it had become a real mess. My controller constantly had to chase me. Archiving travel receipts and boarding cards simply wasn't on my list of priorities. Being able to hand over stuff like travel, document, and calendar management to my EA has taken a lot of stress of my shoulders and more importantly, it has helped me set a good example for my employees.
I’m the founder and CEO of a biotech company with offices in four countries and chairman of the Danish Biotech Association. I have many meetings weekly with potential investors and partners and participate in scientific conferences. On top of that, I have to cope with the stress of managing extensive travel. Being able to hand over all that to my EA has allowed me to focus on my wellbeing and business goals. You get services from this type of professional EA service that you wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. Proactiveness for a starter. My EA sometimes predicts my travel needs before I do - that’s a luxury I now enjoy. More hours of support. Then there is the 24-hour back-up team supporting me when my EA is off. And, because of the time-difference, tasks are solved before I arrive at the office in the morning. You need to get to know each other’s ways of working, but it’s a very cost-effective way of getting support from an experienced assistant who can help you lead the life you want and achieve your business goals at the same time.
Being a Startup CEO in a New York-based investment fund, I work out of a co-working space that provides the basics of a back office. But I still lack support in areas such as travel, research, and even IT-support. Stuff that is very time consuming and painful to manage but has a huge impact on my quality of life. I used to spend a lot of time and energy researching hotels and Airbnbs, even restaurants that I would like in new cities. Being able to hand over tasks like that to my EA has been a huge timesaver. She even saves all travel documents in my calendar. This service is more tech-savvy than any virtual assistant service I have tried in the past, and the level of integration is much better. The service works well, saves me time, enhances my quality of life, and it even saves me money.
'A personal assistant service that works, no hassle! It took me less than a week to establish a working relationship with my executive assistant (EA), the onboarding process was a joy – simple, fast and easy. My EA understood my preferences immediately and the service was up and running seamlessly after only a week, saving me lots of time and energy'.
'I started with an executive assistant from Sigrid.AI more than a year ago, Mara, and she has made a world of difference in my day-to-day life. Can't recommend highly enough.'
Being a Hong Kong-based capital fund that invests in companies in Asia, I used to spend a lot of time and energy stressing about getting time-zones right and not bumping into local holidays when coordinating meetings and video calls with new clients across Asia and the rest of the world. The first impression lasts with new clients, and I would often log in to a meeting stressed about how I was being perceived. Being able to hand over the complexity of meeting coordination to a remote EA has been incredibly time saving and anxiety-reducing and it has allowed me to focus on more important things. I'm pleased to say that I now use my EA for almost everything, and it has proven to be really helpful.
‘The Sigrid.AI team's attention to detail, and the proactive and highly personal effort to understand my life and work has given me hours of precious me-time.'
‘Why hire and manage an executive assistant, when you can hire a managed team. Well done team Sigrid.AI.’
‘Working with my executive assistant and the support team on recurring tasks such as calendar management, expense reporting and flight bookings has saved me more than 5 hours a week and really helped boost my performance level.’
Under the hood of Sigrid.AI is a machine learning platform that records your preferences, learns them, and presents them instantly to the assistant you’re working with. By learning to anticipate your needs, we learn to meet them quicker.
Unlike fully virtual assistant services, Sigrid.AI uses technology to support our human assistants – not to replace them. We built a collaboration platform that helps the team solve problems and complete tasks collectively, saving them more time individually. The platform uses machine learning to identify the kind of task, giving the personal assistant a headstart before they’ve even opened your email.
While tech might power our engine, our people are plotting the course. At the heart of Sigrid.AI is the idea that, collectively, we’re smarter. That’s why when you hire a remote personal assistant from us, you’re also hiring the sum total of our team’s expertise. Our managed team of virtual executive assistants are supported by a team of specialists who are available round the clock to take care of the details so you can take care of the big picture.
