I have been co-hosting events with Abigail on numerous occasions and it is not often that I say this BUT when it comes to speaking, organising events, running workshops, being a host, organiser and facilitator - Abigail makes it look like ZERO effort. Her events are a MUST ATTEND. Her ability to speak from stage and teach her material is super unique as she brings very complex topics to life with here ability to simplify and create her own methodologies. If you are looking for a speaker that really leaves your audience inspired, Abigail is your woman!Annik Petrou, London

I had the true pleasure to take part of Abigail's Workshop on Lead Don't Follow. The content around Self-Leadership, Lifestyle and Legacy was really thought-provoking and inspiring. It made me reflect and at the same time gave me pragmatic tools in order to get into action after the session. What made the real difference was Abigail´s way of delivering the workshop. It shows she really enjoys what she does, this is contagious. Abigail keeps the audience in her hands throughout the entire workshop. She does this via her authentic style, daring to display vulnerability and shares very openly what made her to what she is today. The audience in the workshop must not have been easy to impress, consisting of very experienced international trainers and coaches.Thomas Kronberg, Sweden
I have also experienced Abigail is a great coach, showing true interest in others development with clear and precise questions.
I am happy to give Abigail my best recommendations.
Thanks Abigail for your thought-provoking workshop. I added one of your 6 important questions to my weekly project review plan to remind me to make wise decisions!Anderson Hirst, Surrey

"I just wanted to share the events of this week. I had a meeting with Abigail Barnes two weeks or so ago and we spoke about lots of things but she said something about VA's that particularly resonated with me.Karin, Scotland
I had always steered away from using "foreign assistance" due to the perception I had about slave labour etc from Asia etc. Abigail and I spoke about this and she highlighted the fact that we are providing employment to people where the average hourly rate is $0.40 and the majority of people live on less than $1 a day and that if you paid them $10 per hour this would destabilise their economy and cause issues.
I'd been busy the last two weeks travelling all around Scotland and early this week I thought bugger this I need some help so I explored fiverr. And found a very lovely and professional Indian gentleman called Anmol who had a 7 hour block of time available for $10 dollars this worked out at $1.45 ph 3.5 times the average wage which I felt was fair. I needed some research doing for the second edition of my book This is Gin so I gave this to him to do with a 3 day deadline. Long story short he came back in less than a day with everything completed perfectly.
I spent some time looking at my to do list and deciding which tasks I didn't want to do, weren't my immediate priority etc and have given them to him to do. Im now employing him one day a week to do all the tasks that have kept me from driving my business forward.
I've been out seeing more clients, returning calls quicker, scheduling appointments sooner and generally working more efficiently. My brain has been freed up to get my new website properly planned out and start writing copy and planning videos, knowing that production of my downloads etc is all in hand and I'm not stressing about them.
I've been sleeping better this week since I took the plunge too. Not only have I freed up my workload but I'm more motivated again too.So if you've been considering employing a VA please do it. You won't regret it. Find the person that fits you and your business. I was lucky I got a good fit at first try, here's hoping you do too.
Now, running two businesses is fully possible one four days a week one one day - time to explore automation too."
Just had a call with Abigail and I've ended up with a page of super helpful pointers, super helpful and actionable straight away.Charlie, London
