Magda consulted for me in 2017 when I was looking to rebrand and improve our customer experience. She has the rare quality of being able to balance business strategy, operations and people management. Magda knows when to listen and when to push forward an idea, but perhaps her biggest skill is the ability to simplify complex issues and present a solution or strategy where you will reflect “why didn’t I think of that.” On an individual level I found Magda to be very personable, professional and rather insightful. It was impressive how quick she was to understand both my requirements and the customers’ expectations. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Magda again.
An Estate Agency with Confused Marketing
Jay was looking for a Personal Assistant, who would take care of 'stuff'. Soon enough I realised that 'stuff' is almost everything that goes behind the scenes - the back office to the front-end sales operations. The biggest project was the re-branding. After 18 years of having confused marketing, I was able to streamline the image of the business and build some brand consistency for HJC. In the process I differentiated the estate agency from all other in the High Street with some radical and innovative creativity. I supported Jay with staff issues as well and we managed to 'put the right people on the bus, in the right places', as he liked to call it. I audited all his supplier costs and, in some cases, made changes which resulted in considerable savings, specifically to the areas of IT support, utilities and software.
In a short space of time at HJC Magda has made an immediate impact in a range of areas from marketing, customer support to HR and business development. She has introduced many new and exciting methods of progressing HJC, in terms of service standards and brand development. Magda’s many skills include first and foremost listening to the requirements of clients and staff, contractors and service providers, shaping the way HJC are seen and how we perform in a crowded market, so we stand out as the leading independent estate agency in the area.
Why you should hire a business consultant?
Being self-employed and running your own business can be the best job in the world when things are going well, and the worst when they are not. In my experience, most business owners are just too close to their everyday problems and often lose their sense of perspective when it comes to finding the right solutions. I will help you with:
- Planning and implementing projects;
- Staying organised in all aspects of your business;
- Producing practical results and enhacing strategic thinking;
- Creating success by focusing on your personal development, time management, clarity in setting up goals and decision making.
I also offer marketing support with your online presence. My one-to-one training sessions will help you understand social media better so you will not get overwhelmed with which platform is right for your business.

Company Image Transformation
I joined the company in 2010 tasked with creating a Personal Assistant position from scratch. My then boss appreciated that I wasn’t afraid to share my honest opinions with him. I wanted to transform the company image into something much more modern, friendly and professional so I focused on planning the development of the marketing strategy. Working very closely with a marketing agency, I drastically changed the website layout and all marketing materials, which had a noticeably positive knock-on for the company culture.
Magda showed her ability and efficiency in both, managing the office of the Management Board, and later in the management and creation of activities in the field of Public Relations. Moreover, she proved to be responsible, confident of her skills and success orientated. I recommend Magda as a person who guarantees reliability, honesty and conscientiousness when performing assigned projects.
"I thoroughly recommend Magda, and I would hire her back in an instant. As my personal assistant, Magda was the "go-to-person" for all people related matters, in charge of our talent hiring, employee development and employee engagement. She grew the team by hiring the best suitable talent. She also developed the leadership capabilities of our managers, and supported them in building and maintaining an engaging work environment.
