"Having worked with Karlene previously at FTRC, I’ve watched her company, Organised You, successfully grow over the past few years. I recently referred an IFA client who was looking for a process and support review to Organised You as it was an ideal fit for both her business and location. Karlene immediately understood the client’s requirements and she personally delivered the work to a high standard and within the requested timescales while keeping me up to date with progress. Karlene is exceptionally well organised and knowledgeable about the sector. It is a pleasure to deal with her both professionally and personally and look forward to working with her further in the future."
"It is just over a year since Organised You started helping JG Financial Services with our administrative work and it has made a tremendous difference to the business. The team and in particular Jo, have been excellent and from a business with backlogs of paperwork to complete, we are now in a position where we can concentrate on reviewing our existing clients and generating new business, knowing that the administrative work is in good hands. Jo is hard working and willingly takes on any task, which she completes professionally and thoroughly. It is always a pleasure to speak with Jo and Karlene and they have really helped to organise our business so that we can continue to succeed."
"Karlene was referred to us by a mutual connection, as we required help with documenting and reviewing our existing processes. Her experience in the financial services industry, together with her focus on efficiency and logical processes, has meant she is perfectly placed to deliver what we needed. Karlene's warm and personable nature also makes it a pleasure to work with her. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to improve their administration and back office functions."
"Working with Jo has been a breath of fresh air. She saves me lot of time, about 2 hours for each client review. I am kept up to date and she does everything punctually. It's a great working relationship which has reduced my stress levels considerably and she has a good sense of humour too. My only regret is that I wish I had started working with someone like Jo and Organised You sooner!"
"Karlene has taken the bird's nest that was my bookkeeping and turned it into a structured, organised and (almost) enjoyable process, giving me time to work on the aspects of my business that I love. She is capable, warm and friendly and approaches the most complex problems with grace and good humour. Highly, highly recommended."
"Organised You has lived up to its name. Working with Karlene and Catherine has been a pleasure and Shimmin Communications has benefited from numerous helpful activities such as the design of an online system helping me maximise my engagement with clients across a complex coaching and consultancy schedule. Catherine is invaluable in keeping me to task so that the important as well as urgent stuff gets done. I can recommend you get organised by working with Organised You. "
"Since I started working with Karlene & Jo a couple of months ago I have already seen the benefits. Jo has helped my organisation and is really fantastic on detail which frees time to develop fantastic client solutions. Karlene is brilliant at high level planning and is great at suggesting more efficient processes."
“We are a family run business and taking time away together is hard. This year we decided to take a week’s holiday as a family and enlisted the support of Karlene and Jo. They looked after the day to day running of our busy office with professionalism and empathy to our clients. We enjoyed time away knowing our business was in safe hands. We’re looking forward to our next break!"
“We established our business in 2016 and Karlene was there from the start helping us with regulation and recruitment, making sure we considered every issue thoroughly. Today, Karlene and her team at OrganisedYou make running our business more streamlined and efficient. Keeping up with compliance matters is time consuming and we find our time is better used focusing on our clients and advisers, something we would do far less well without external support. We have every confidence in Karlene and the team and take her lead during our regular update calls. Wouldn’t want to do this without her."
"The team at OY are amazing, they are patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful I wouldn't use anyone else."
"Karlene and Catherine have really helped my business and I have been able to grow it in such a short space of time of working with them. They have also saved me money by being experts all forms of administration. I cannot recommend them highly enough."
"Karlene is brilliant. Very friendly and knows her stuff. Doing wonders for our company in a very short space of time. Would definitely recommend Organised You to any small business."
"I have worked with “Organised You” for 3 years now and they have been a great support to our business. Karlene and her team have made a huge difference to our efficiency and admin processes!"
"Karlene and the girls are just amazing. They have helped us on numerous projects from building up a good following on Social Media to helping organise us for Retail Fairs. Can not recommend enough!"
“Jodie has provided invaluable advice and assistance in raising our company profile through Social Media, most specifically with our Twitter and Linked-in accounts. She approaches her work in a friendly, efficient and professional manner and we would not hesitate to recommend her services"
“Karlene knows about business finance and accounts. Her experience using QuickBooks has been invaluable to the Ormiston Trust as we streamline and improve our Finance systems and our overall strategy. The fact that she is friendly, efficient and easy to work with is an added bonus!”
“Karlene is reliable, efficient and a pleasure to work with. In a short space of time she has bought my accounting system up to date, and got systems in place that I've been meaning to work on for a long time. Excellent service that I'd highly recommend"
“With the fantastic support from Organised You, I am finally starting to feel in control of my paper work, honestly I love creating cakes too much to spend hours filling in spreadsheets and matching everything up for the accountant. If you feel out of control, don't worry just pass a box of paperwork to Karlene and she will return very quickly with completed spreadsheets & organised files, not to forget great ideas to improve your business and get you back on track"
“I look forward to my monthly morning/day with Karlene, she always emails me in advance to help me get organised for our session and we seem to get so much done in just a few hours. We are currently using new system to book customers in to my Swim School, and she is making it look easy!"
"I would like to thank you so much for being such a joy to work with! I found the whole team at Organised You to be extremely professional and a real inspiration, helping me to feel much more on top of everything than I have ever been in the past. Your patience and customer service has been second to none and I would not hesitate to recommend the company wholeheartedly to everyone who needs a service like yours!!!!"
