Our story.

Strictly Savvy - Where your life and business transform: as if by magic.

Business owners were struggling to get everything done, and we knew we could help. They were overwhelmed and not coping with the day-to-day running of their businesses. The dilemma was that they knew they needed help but didn't want the risk and hassle of employing someone.

Since 2012 we've been growing a team of high-calibre virtual assistants with a multitude of skills, talents and knowledge. We have also developed streamlined processes and systems all of which directly benefit our clients, set us apart from the average business and places us as the leading virtual assistant company in New Zealand.

By building a team with such an extensive array of skills, we are able to assist you with almost any task.

Whether you call us an outsourced office admin team, business support team or a virtual secretarial service - we can assist with anything that will free up your time to spend it where it's needed most.

Virtual assistants are no longer a secret - the concept features in many productivity blogs and is called by some a productivity secret weapon.

Outsource your to-do list to our team of savvy virtual assistants - we're that little bit of magic you've been looking for! Get in touch...

Did you know we're an award winning team?

Leanne Rookes


Priding herself on her consistency and reliability, Leanne comes to the Savvy Squad with 12 plus years as a legal secretary and PA under her multi-talented belt. 

Highly organised and committed to quality, ‘precision’ could very well be Leanne’s middle name, as she thrives when asked to complete tasks that require her utmost focus and accuracy.

Originally hailing from Taranaki, Leanne now considers herself a Hutt local, having spent the last ten years here. Living with her partner, as well as a dog named Dougal, and two cats (Fat Gary and Geordie), when not busy with Savvy clients, Leanne enjoys taking road trips in their Chev van to see American car shows (no, not for the cars, just for the clothes and shoes!)
