My name is Gabriella Elia.
I am a career changer and a strong supporter of diversity. I am a consultant and a luxury concierge at the same time.
I can accomplish EA/PA roles both on a private, as well as, on a business level, due to my academic back ground and work experience, which covers a whole range of EA/PA, legal and luxury concierge roles.
Presently, I run a luxury concierge business through which we offer any type of service that prospective and existing clients request. Services include among others, events planning, personal shopping, photo shootings, private chauffeuring, dining, holiday arrangements to luxurious destinations, VIP tickets on various events, , legal services including immigration, travel itinerary/planning, personal concierge services and bespoke services of last minute requests.
Simultaneously, I cooperate on a fee earing basis with a law firm in the city of London on an associate level. I attend meetings, draft minutes, attend hearing, write reports, do legal research, liaise with clients and I deal with anything else needed for assisting the partners to their work load.
Previously I accomplished in-house legal roles in ship owing companies giving me the opportunity to travel all over the world and to deal with international transactions representing the ship-owners. It is worth mention, that much of my time during my career as in-house lawyer with shipping companies, I accomplished roles of EA/PA to the principles and was dealing with their private matters, including but not limited to, organising parties and events, arranging their flights and holidays, doing their personal shopping, arranging everything with their children’s schools, and of anything that my input was considered necessary. It might worth mentioning that I serviced shipping companies lots of years.
I served also as an office manager in a city law firm at a transitional period of my life between jobs.
Throughout my career I was dealing with EA and business development roles which imply good communication and organisational skills and a good customer service.
I am used to working on International level and deal with cross cultural context of work and people.
As aforesaid, I feel my skills and experience would lend itself well to any EA or PA roles and I am keen to meet the challenge of the roles.
Thank you for considering myself as a candidate and I look forward to hearing from you.
