The benefits of hiring a Sigrid.AI remote assistant
"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 PA 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."

"Running a venture builder in Singapore means I don’t have the luxury of time during office hours for managing my inbox, my travels, and things like online shopping, expense reimbursements, and meeting scheduling considering time zone differences. I’m a control freak with my time, and I hate doing these things. So imagine the stress and anxiety I felt when, after 16 years of helping me, a couple of months ago, my wife decided to get a job. I used to throw everything at her, and magically everything would happen. I signed up with Sigrid.AI immediately, and the transition was painless. The onboarding process and the way they handle the sharing of sensitive data with 1Password developed a level of trust in me. I was expecting a lot of mistakes, but everything gets solved in less than 24 hours, with only a few minor breakdowns until now that was fixed immediately. My EA is available to me during working hours, and he now handles everything for me, including planning my travels down to the last detail. He always saves all relevant information and documents in my electronic calendar. It’s not a one-way street, though. You need to allow Sigrid.AI to get to know your expectations and your preferences – your way of working."

"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."

"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."

"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."
