I always wanted my own business but could never work out what in?! (Turns out it was staring me in the face!)
Fifteen years as a Legal PA & I felt like my life was going nowhere.
I wasn’t happy in the corporate bubble so after having my third child a switch had flicked. Someone or something had turned some lights on!
So that was it!
The planning & research began & I kept taking action, no matter how small.
I took the parts of all of my previous roles that I loved & created what you see today.
Being a PA for me isn’t all about the work, that’s a very small part. I like to find out WHY my clients do what they do, are they happy? Where do they want their career to go? How can I support them personally? I can then tailor my support accordingly.
Building Poppins PA has been, & still is, a long time coming & it’s only now that I appreciate all my previous roles. Now I can deliver everything I know you need to support you, to live your life seamlessly.
“Amazing! That’s the first word I would use for Abi. I work extremely long hours & have a hectic life. I was starting to feel anxious & stressed with my workload & worried I couldn’t juggle all the plates. A friend recommended Abi to me & within the first day I noticed a huge difference. Abi is calm, extremely well organised & things just seem to happen….seamlessly! I feel prepared for meetings, focused on my actions & to top it off she has me so well organised I have time for me – which is rare. Her professionalism & efficiency are incredible & I built a rapport & trust with Abi very quickly. To put it simply….I couldn’t be without her now!”

"Abi is a fab communicator, responds in a timely manner & keeps people in the loop to ensure expectations are met! Abi does this with a friendly & positive approach!"

"Abigail Langridge has been nothing but an incredible Personal Assistant to my mother for a few years.
Diligent, resourceful, trustworthy, honest, accurate , precise & organised. Apart from those qualities she also proved to be a true companion to my mother & someone my mother was lucky enough to call a friend.
I would without any hesitation recommend Abigail to anybody who needs their life organised, somebody who can be trusted to the nth degree & an incredible woman.
It was with sadness that we said goodbye to Abigail after the death of my mother & the job came to a sudden end."
- Peter Cohen | Director of Caribbean Multihulls
"Abigail has been employed by my mother & family over the last two years. During this time she has experienced a vast range of duties from the very serious financial to the smoothing of furrowed brows; & has more than fulfilled every one of these, with total ability & confidence.
My mother required a PA 'plus' to run her complicated financial situation & that of the estate.
Abi proved more than equal to any task. She is discreet, reliable, honest, caring, approachable & amazingly efficient. I would trust her without doubt with all, she has a happy smiling personality & is as sharp as a razor! She has coped with some complex & demanding days with total serenity. My mother above all trusted her (as did we all). Abi has been a wonderful addition to running the last few years of my mother's life with a calm & caring attitude. I would have no hesitation in employing Abi, a true professional & friend."
