Thanks to Louise’s formidable reputation and expertise our customers are delighted every time they use one of our services. Here’s what some clients have said on our own website and on the totally independent Free Index website
Prior to establishing Silver Concierge, I had a successful 30 year career as a financial controller and board level manager in the service, health and retail sectors, where I managed budgets of £65m and teams of up to 35. During this time, I honed a wide range of transferrable skills including:
- problem solving
- team building
- being organised and proactive
- getting things done working quickly and efficiently
- dealing with legislation and government departments.
This background has also helped me develop attributes which are vital in my current business such as confidentiality, honesty, integrity and flexibility. Coupled with a friendly, outgoing and caring nature – which is not always present with some corporate types! – I ensure that the service we give to our customers is second to none.
In addition to my personal skills, I also hold a current Enhanced Criminal Records Check, a First Aid certificate and full insurance.
I also have a wide range of interests outside the business. One of my favourite ways to spend time is with my horse, Conor, who has even been with me on client appointments! My love of riding has also led me to volunteer with Riding for the Disabled at their Mid Cheshire branch..
Travel and learning about new things is a passion of both me and my husband Andy. I love fresh air, the countryside, theatre and art. Watercolours are my favourite and I've dabbled a little myself. I have a small kiln in the cellar and a grinding machine too but my painting, pottery and stained glass craft have taken a back seat since I took up horse riding in 1998!
I am passionate about my business, and passionate about people. Most are amazed to hear about all the things I have achieved and enjoyed in my life! All of this makes me the person I am today, and Silver Concierge the business it is and will be in the future.
