Making business owners' lives better since 2012.

Jo Jensen founded Strictly Savvy in 2012 as she recognised business owners were struggling to get everything done.

Enter our highly skilled team. The best virtual assistants based all around NZ with a multitude of skills, talent and knowledge. We have opened up the opportunity for business owners to leverage a whole team in one, without any of the added stress.
