How a Virtual Assistant Can Help You with Meetings

Are you preparing for a big meeting and sigh at the list of things you must do? Here’s a secret; with a Virtual Assistant, you can have stress-free meetings. In this blog post, we will discuss how a VA can help you with a meeting.

“A leader’s job is not to do the work for others, it’s to help others figure out how to do it themselves, to get things done, and to succeed beyond what they thought possible. “

 -Simon Sinek

Here’s how a VA can help you

It all depends on how much you want to delegate. Some entrepreneurs delegate the entire meeting preparation to a VA and others prefer to hand over only the less critical tasks.

Here’s how a VA can help you with your meetings:

Before the meeting

  • Schedule the meeting
  • Make travel arrangements
  • Hire caterers, food etc
  • Coordinate speakers
  • Manage the rest of the team
  • Conduct research
  • Proofread documents
  • Prepare presentations
  • Prepare and send out meeting materials
  • Communicate with attendees


  • Record the meeting and take minutes
  • Be your right-hand woman so you don’t miss anything
  • Monitor and troubleshoot if things go wrong


  • Fill out expense reports and track reimbursements
  • Follow up with correspondence
  • Manage tasks assigned
  • Communicate with attendees and other staff members

Not only can a VA do all of this for you, but they can give ideas and support you throughout the process as well. Doesn’t this sound so much better than having to do it all yourself? And the best part? It’s all affordable!

Many assume that such assistance must come at a high price, however, VA’s are a cheaper alternative to a full-time employee.
