I have known Fliss Demir for 15 years plus and she is an
outstanding professional, exceptionally organized, highly
capable and a joy to work with. She approaches every
project/assignment with clarity, integrity and purpose and i
would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering
working with her. She has worked in a wide variety of
businesses and cannot be phased whether working for a start
up, a large corporate or for private individuals, she is one
of those rare individuals who can do it all

I have worked with Fliss on a very complex project involving
many external parties for more than 2 years. She has been the
driving force behind this project and kept it on track against
a number of unexpected obstacles. Available 24/7 even during
very challenging personal hurdles, she managed all parties
smoothly meeting very tight deadlines.
(Chief Operating Officer – Director of Operations, Acheron Capital)
liss is one of those quite rare people who know just the right
people to solve your problems. When you've tried your best and
don't know where to turn, turn to Fliss.
Fliss is an extraordinary project executor one of the best I
have ever worked with. She is across all required detail and
deliverables and can action in a calm, diplomatic and
determined manner. She understands every clients stresses and
issues of sensitivities - a life changer !
(Controller Youth Audience, BBC Iplayer and BBC Three)
I have worked with Fliss in a big media organisation and a
small media startup. In both cases she had a central role
handling rolling deadlines under acute pressure, and was
always the calm at the eye of the storm. More than that,
especially at the startup, she had the bandwidth and
commitment to contribute on strategy, management and the
general direction of the company. Fliss is a team player but
also a special talent, able to see round corners, head off
trouble and spot opportunities while everyone else is still
sipping their flat whites.
Fliss Demir has been a great asset to work with. Her sense of
calm, thoroughness and persistence really took pressure off me
when i was trying to start a new venture. She is extremely
bright, goes the extra mile for her clients and thinks
creatively to solve problems big or small.
Fliss Demir has worked for us as an executive PA for nearly 12
years. She has a phenomenal work rate and not only excels at
all problem-solving (whether it’s dealing with taxes,
builders, houses, cars, holidays, general life admin or
setting up new systems) but is brilliant at anticipating
issues that may arise. In this way she not only takes huge
amounts of work and stress off your shoulders but sometimes
things you never even knew were there in the first place!
All this is done with warmth, loyalty, and efficiency. She takes great pride in making sure she can fix everything and get you the best outcome she possibly can and will leave no stone unturned until she has done so. She has a great ability to understand and empathise with the shape of your day, and make life easier in every way she can. Can’t recommend her services - and her, personally - highly enough.

Managing Editor at BBC News
I have known Fliss for more than 15 years. She started out as my personal assistant but soon became much more - my fixer-in-general, in fact. Her determination, her refusal ever to take no for an answer solved any number of problems for me, whether it was arranging a big event for important guests or making sure a disabled person would get proper access to an awards ceremony. All this she did with a touch of humour and always with pride in her performance. If you have a problem, big or small, I strongly recommend you turn to Fliss.
I loved working with Fliss at The Times and was so impressed
by her organisational skills and problem solving that I
reached out after starting my first company. She went through
all my information with meticulous care and helped come up
with a new approach. I cannot recommend Fliss more highly.

I worked with Fliss whilst I was seconded into the BBC News
leadership team. Fliss had one of the busiest roles within the
newsroom. Balancing many stakeholders and partners meant she
had to find solutions fast. She was pleasant and realistic at
managing expectations and ensured that all parties had the
best outcome, whatever that may have been. Working in a busy
newsroom this would often change right up to the last minute.
I always admired how she was able to prioritise and
communicate some very complex scenarios in an efficient and

I have known Felicity professionally and personally for a
number of years. She is by some margin one of the most
reliable and effective operators in her field. She is also a
warm and dependable woman who inspires great trust in all
those around her. Felicity is a joy to work with and be with
and I wish I was working alongside her right now. She is
wholly reliable and trustworthy.
