Janet Hipkiss - the connected va - is the owner of Janet Hipkiss Virtual Office Services.


With a BSc. (Hons) in Biology and Chemistry from Manchester, she then spent more than 30 years in the corporate environment working for Blue Chip companies. 


Her sales, marketing, training and administration skills were developed over this time, and she spent a considerable time learning business skills and advances in technology. In this time she also covered a variety of roles including management, mentoring and troubleshooting.


She set up as a part time Virtual Assistant in May 2009, and found that the majority of her work came from creating, managing and maintaining websites and blogs. She became so busy that she employed two website wizards and they are still with her today.


In January 2011, she went full time - still creating websites and blogs - but expanded to help with their administration issues, as well as call handling, databases, diary management, email management and social media. She also continued her training - learning as much as she could so that she was able to offer her clients added value.


Janet felt that the way forward was to learn all things 'techie' to include autoresponders, sales pages, campaigns, teleseminars and videos, and these have been invaluable for her clients. Due to client demand, she has also added another member to the team who is a social media guru and helps clients drive their businesses through all things social media and blogs.


Janet also has the knack of connecting people to people, people to the technology and being an essential part of marketing plans. 



She is a member of UKAVA (United Kingdom Association of Virtual Assistants), an approved member of SVA (Society of Virtual Assistants), and A VA Insider member,  and adhere to their standards of business.


On a personal note, her passions are her friends and family, knitting (Yes! She is knitting nana!), watching sport and , in particularly her Manchester City.
