All Change for WiRE Member!

Posted: 25th May 2016

Last year, Lara Madge was an active part of the Gloucestershire WiRE group with her businesses that she operated from her 20 acre smallholding just outside of Wotton Under Edge.   With the businesses spanning a number of fields of expertise including a veg box scheme; a rare breed pork business; a holiday cottage and a wedding venue, Lara was kept very busy!    Today, however, things have changed.   Due to a move driven by family issues to Hampshire, Lara not only moved from her beloved farm with her husband, Oliver, in April, 2016 but she also found herself subsequently unemployed!

Enter stage right, the birth of Trestan Associates!    To prove that she doesn’t like to stand still for long, Lara started Trestan Associates in April to provide small businesses with the help they need, when they need it.   Her skills in social media, blogging, event planning and general secretarial skills means that Lara can concentrate on making sure that your business has the branding and presence, on the internet, to ensure you are reaching your target audience, whilst you can get on and do what you do well – running your business.    A remote PA or just someone to update your Facebook posts – you’re in control, leaving you time to dedicate yourself to the parts of your business that you do best.

No job is too small or too big.

Hourly rates start from £10/hour and you can utilise Lara’s skills to your businesses advantage.
