Irish businesswoman Lisa Boissel was in Dublin’s Shelbourne Hotel last week to celebrate the launch of the Irish branch of her business, Miss Jones.
he service is aimed at personal and executive assistants
and office managers whose job it is to organise events for their companies.
It already has 20,000 members in the UK and is now targeting those working for multinationals in Dublin, as well as local Irish businesses which need to organise staff and client hospitality.
Boissel, a former event planner who bought out the business in full last year, said Miss Jones books venues and suppliers on behalf of companies, as well as organising corporate hospitality and team-building workshops or retreats.
Miss Jones also provides concierge services specialising in dining and lifestyle experiences.
“We’re the PA to the PA,” she said, adding that getting sought-after tickets to Wimbledon had been among the tasks requested in recent days.
Sourcing sold-out tickets and securing last-minute bookings in very popular restaurants is another service it offers.
There is an upside for PAs who use the service – they get rewards such as overnight stays by booking through Miss Jones. Boissel says it gives office organisers a taste of their bosses’ lifestyle.
Boissel partnered with founder of Ireland’s ‘Executive PA Forum’ Fiona Kelly to launch in Ireland and has already linked up the Shelbourne, The Merrion Hotel and Brown Thomas here.
