"I have known Chandra Gardner and her business, SmartPA, for over two years now and been delighted with the diligence, professionalism and care with which she and her company deliver their services. Within the Red Ribbon Group Chandra herself has been PA to the Group CEO and latterly for the last year as PA to me as Chairman and CEO for one of the group entities. If we need more than is possible or she is herself out of office, the team behind her ensure that we are always taken care of without fail. 

Attention to detail, commercial savvy and calm demeanor are the fundamentals of delivery, but there is far more to the service than that. Over this last two plus years, I have experienced time and again how excellent is the provision of all services I have received and been part of. Nothing is too much trouble, everything is taken care of, and usually anticipated before needed. The service I have received has been simply astounding and I have the greatest pleasure in recommending Chandra and her business, SmartPA. During a particularly trying time when trapped in a hotel room due to Covid, Chandra was incredible in her care and kindness: truly an excellent and first class service, way, way beyond what could reasonably be expected."
