Empowering time-stretched Business Owners & Hotel Managers
by offering flexible support with Project, Hotel & Events Management
Are you looking for a safe pair of hands to delegate some of your workload to as your business is growing or you want it to grow further and realise you cannot do it all by yourself as there is simply not enough time to do it all?
Are you looking for someone to whom you can delegate critical support tasks to, in order to enable you to focus more on your priorities and things that really matter to you?
By outsourcing to me you may be able to regain some of that much-needed headspace. I fully appreciate outsourcing needs to be done with care as you will need someone to compliment your team, a person who is trustworthy and responsible, to have your back. Why not have a call with me to see whether I can help you?
It's my aim to "make the magic happen", working behind the scenes, or in some instances assisting temporarily in front of house positions in the hotel industry. I bring people peace of mind, become their business sidekick and soundboard. I can be your right-hand person with all-year-round support, or simply help you for a limited period to clear your forever growing to-do list or maybe assist you with a one off project.
My name is Lonneke Macauley, I am a Virtual Business Organiser / Online Business Manager (OBM) and the founder of the company. I am a multi-lingual, highly motivated, and a widely skilled individual with more than 20 years of International work experience with excellent leadership, people, planning, communication, and organisation skills.
In a previous life, I was a Hotel Manager working in various large resorts around the world. Being customer-focused, operating individually and part of a team is what I am still passionate about. Once I started a family I changed my career path and began my second career which was that of an Executive Assistant, where I worked for over ten years assisting C-level Executives.
By outsourcing some of your significant tasks to me, you will have the freedom and time to focus on what you enjoy most. Whether this is taking your business to the next level or simply aiming for the work/life balance, after all, time is very precious!
Services range from ad hoc support, starting from one hour a month, to ongoing support on a retainer basis, to tailored support on a project basis. All at a fraction of the cost compared to employing someone.
I would like to thank you for your time, please explore my website and feel free to contact me by email or phone, should you have any questions.
Meet the person behind the company
Lonneke Macauley, founder & owner of Time Precious PA Ltd.
Hi, my name is Lonneke Macauley, the founder, and owner of Time Precious PA Ltd launched in June 2018. I am a multi-lingual, highly motivated Dutch national based in the UK for the past 14 years, providing strategic, operational, management and administrative support. I am a very detailed and organised person and believe in the power of efficiency. I am a self-motivator who enjoys teamwork and a challenge.
I am accustomed to wearing many “hats” in an organisation and I do not shy away from multi-tasking or hard work.
Keen to find a new challenge using my leadership, people, planning, communication and organisation skills acquired over the past 20 years during my international career; Time Precious PA Ltd seemed like a natural choice. It was my desire to start a business venture whereby I could help others and at the same time, provide a better work/life balance for my family and myself.
Every business, from time to time, is in need of an extra pair of safe hands, which I have often experienced myself during my career and that is where the idea of setting up a virtual executive business support service stems from.
For the last 10 years, I have worked in various business support roles assisting C-Executives. My most recent role in the corporate world, which was carried out mainly on a virtual basis, was that of an Executive Assistant. I worked with the Executive Leadership Team of one of the largest fast-paced global telecommunications service providers, providing 1-1 support to an internationally recognised top 20 Chief Marketing Officer (Forbes), delivering the highest level of business support ranging from critical office, team and stakeholder management in a multi-cultural environment.
Prior to this, I spent more than 10 rewarding and productive years in the Hospitality Industry. I hold a BA in Hotel Management, with experience in various Senior Hotel Management positions mainly in the Caribbean.
I remain passionate about this industry and I am drawn to the customer-focused aspect of the hospitality business and my success lies in the ability to work and operate individually or as part of a team.
I understand that running your own business or keeping your hotel running like clockwork can be challenging as I am a business owner myself and very much remember the days when I used to manage hotels. I like to help people and that stems from my hospitality background. I love the fact that having a little bit of me in my clients' lives makes a real difference to them and their business.
For most of my clients, I work with them directly, I am their dedicated 'go-to' person, their online business partner, their business sidekick. However, due to the fact that I offer such flexible business support and do various Project Management Support throughout the year and some can be seasonal, my workload can vary a lot on a month to month basis. As a result, on selected projects and tasks, I may work with other freelancers and manage a small team of experts who compliment my services to ensure I can support all of my clients in the best possible way. All of these team members are carefully selected and these individuals are always introduced to my clients in advance so this is fully transparent.
If you are looking for flexible support to enable you to grow your business, need some help with hotel or general operational support to free up some of your precious time for you or one of your team members, don't hesitate, it's never too late, make that call or send me an email and start to delegate!
I offer a 30-minute free consultation, feel free to contact me, by emailing me on Lon@TimePreciousPA.com or call me on +447803425552.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Running an efficient business takes a lot of time and effort, I fully appreciate this and am here to assist you with this. This can come with budget constraints and therefore it may not be achievable to hire a full-time staff member to support your business.
So, why not get the benefit of a freelance team member you can delegate things to and partner up with, on a pay as you need basis? A dedicated go-to person, at a fraction of the cost of a full-time person. Someone you can trust and can help you with your productivity?
Whether it is in the capacity as a Virtual Executive Assistant (VEA), Virtual Private Assistant (VPA) or to take charge in your business as an Online Business Manager (OBM), it all depends on your needs and level of delegation you are comfortable with.
Please let me know what your challenges are, as the above list is not an exhaustive list of services.
People will forget what you said, forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
