I was the Master of Ceremonies and Keynote Speaker at the recent Australian Virtual Assistant Conference in Melbourne. This event was organised by Anita Kilkenny and Kathie Thomas. This was one of the easiest conferences I had to speak at. They both had their finger on the pulse every step of the way. From creation of the websites to arranging the sponsorship exhibits.
In particular, Anita's relaxed yet professional approach to business and the conference made it a breeze to do business with her. If you are looking for someone to assist in arranging your next event, I recommend Anita whole heartedly.
Get More Guy, Get More
I was recently involved with the Australian Virtual Assistant Conference (March 12-13, 2010, Melbourne) as a speaker. Anita was co-organiser of the event and did an absolutely brilliant job! She successfully assisted in the coordination of 15 speakers across two days, arranged for the conference booklet and delegate satchels, prizes, F&B arrangements, and website updates.
It was an amazing event and I was so pleased to be able to participate! A true professional, Anita is also great fun and a pleasure to work with!”
I just wanted to write and thank you for your great help with ANZSPM in 2007/8. You stepped in at a difficult time and helped enormously to keep things running as smoothly as possible while we tried to sort out our directions. It was a time of great change and uncertainty for ANZSPM and you assisted greatly with your experience.
Anita is very reliable and does what she promises to do.
I highly recommend her.
The Office Organiser
Professionalism, dazzling PA abilities, concept and actuality of a virtual PA.
Letters, mailouts, design of forms absolutely brilliantly executed. The main outcome for me was the completion of professional looking application and the marketing overview. I look forward to return in the future.

I found Anita and her service of tremendous value, efficiency and convenience. I have already recommended her to others and I will continue to do so.
Timely, efficient and cost effective.
Ross Property Consultants
Being a SME, it is decision time when it comes to 'special projects', either:
- Allocate an employee to be taken away from their present productive duties and the disruption that comes with that, or
- Look for an outside contractor to fill this niche.
We chose 2., found Anita and haven't looked back. No hesitation recommending AKA Virtual PA to all.

Thank you Anita for doing such a great job! At a time when I was inundated with work, stressing with the project at hand and facing delays and challenges, you did a great job and helped everything fall in to place from your end.
Jacaranda Business Support Services
Anita Kilkenny from AKA Virtual PA, is my personal assistant extraordinaire! She combines the highest standards of professionalism with expert efficiency and up-to-date knowledge of office procedures as well as information technology. Anita is totally reliable. She has, on a number of occasions, gone out of her way to ensure that my business needs in regarding my clinical practice and professional speaking commitments have been met. These occasions were not expected but provided at Anita’s own initiative.
Anita is also creative in her approach to the management of my business. She will research ways to make my business systems more efficient and is forthcoming with suggestions for improving them. Anita is committed to developing her professional expertise.
Anita has a delightful phone manner. At times she has had to converse with some of my clinical patients and has elegantly handled the conversations. She expertly handles my corporate clients.
I cannot recommend Anita highly enough.

Not only is she extremely competent and reliable but also mentally quick and creative and able to entrance my original ideas. All the above is delivered with patience, a warm smile and a good sense of humour.
I can highly recommend her services.
