Deborah Chalcroft



I started my working life at the age of 16 as an Administrator in companies including Citroen and Cable & Wireless. This experience helped me to realise I would be well suited to a career as a Personal Assistant and in 2004 I moved into my first PA role at the largest software company in the world; Microsoft. There I gained invaluable Corporate PA experience however, after 3 and a half years I decided to look for a new challenge in a smaller environment where I could make more of an impact. This decision led to a 6-month maternity cover contract working with world renowned chef, Heston Blumenthal. Those 6 months turned into 12 years; providing support to Heston in every aspect of his business and private life, managing his extremely busy diary and travel schedule, and helping to organise all his TV, book, and brand partnership projects. In addition to working in the corporate world and hospitality industry, I have supported a HNWI in a private household.

Now I offer virtual or onsite support to individuals and businesses that do not want the overheads and legalities of employing a fulltime PA, or simply don’t have the workload for one.


When I’m not working, I enjoy travelling, learning Spanish and am an avid fan of Formula 1.
