Hello and Welcome to Thistle Admin!
I am Morag Davis, the owner of Thistle Admin. I am married with 2 fantastic sons who keep me on my toes and 6 cats who are my furry babies. Family is an intrinsic part of our way of life. We are grateful to have 3 grandparents who dote on their grandchildren, and we see each other regularly. My hobbies are crocheting, reading, talking and spending time with friends, tattoos, motor sport, and steam trains. I am English speaking and based in Sunny South Africa.
Since completing my secretarial diploma from Birnam Business College in 1991, I have served in many administrative roles. Starting with recording arbitrations, basic accounting, data capture and moved through the ranks to Secretary then Executive Administrator and Head of Administration. During my working years I have worked for small corporates, large international OEM’s and more recently in smaller customer-oriented companies.
12 years of my experience were working with customers and dealers in southern Africa, which was an amazing period of learning. Thanks to this time, I understand many of the difficulties of sales, logistics, trading and travelling in this region. Working with people from a variety of cultures, backgrounds and experiences meant we could engage and learn from each other.
After being retrenched due to COVID related issues my working path took an unexpected turn. From a single comment about starting my own business and selling my administrative experiences, the doors opened. My initial response was to ignore the idea, however, I received so much positive feedback and so many messages of encouragement and motivation that I knew I had no choice but to move forward. Then started the fun of finding a name, sorting out social media, finding the belief that this was real and happening. And before I knew it Thistle Admin was open. An enormous thank you to my family and supporters and the many people who have assisted in Thistle Admin becoming a reality.
As an enthusiastic, energetic, confident, polite, hard-working and trustworthy and organised individual with excellent communication skills, I devote myself to developing strong working relationships with my clients. I enjoy being an integral part of problem-solving for customers. My passion is making administration as easy as possible for the customer while maintaining my professionalism and discretion.
My varied experience gives me the required skills to assist your company as a Virtual Executive Assistant and I am looking forward to meeting you to discuss how I can be of assistance in growing your business.
