A PORTSMOUTH businesswoman has been nominated for an award.

Billie-Jo Johnson-Roberts, Outsource2me is a VA – a virtual assistant. Instead of being office-based, she supports her clients via the internet to provide PA and business support.

She has been shortlisted for the UK’s Outstanding Virtual Assistant of 2011 – the only awards of its kind for VAs.

She said: ‘I am very excited and proud to have been short-listed.

‘I believe this will demonstrate to my clients and prospective clients my professionalism, commitment and approach to providing an outstanding service as well as my support to fellow VAs.’

Winners of the awards, run in association with The Society of Virtual Assistants, will be announced on Friday, June 17 at the Holiday Inn, Woking.
