“It’s my pleasure to wholeheartedly endorse Chris Stewart as someone who may help you achieve things in and for your business or mission in the world that you haven’t done and probably can’t do yourself or with your current team. On two occasions, mostly from across the world, Chris accomplished what were for my wife-partner Linda and me highly improbable feats. The first time he researched all the videographers in our price range in the Bay Area and then came over and himself produced and served as interviewer for our first-ever DVD set. The second time, he researched every publicist and PR person in the U.S. in our general field — more than 220 — and helped me find just exactly the right publicist to promote a novel. He did all this with great good cheer, professionalism, and speedy effect. I’m very grateful.”

“When moving a not-for-profit from operating in the world of hard copy brochures, payments via cheques and word of mouth engagement with our clients and partners, I was blown away by the support and advice that Chris provided to me. He advised on and built our website that provides simple and effective communication with our clientele as well as enabling a non-tech person to easily maintain it. His advice and support was fundamental in providing a significant boost to our ability to engage in online world we operate in. From advice on corporate branding and messaging to best operating system to use, Chris has the knowledge, skills and networks to make it happen. We couldn’t do what we do now without him!”

Tim Hyde

“With Chris and Administrivia I’ve found a company that can help me focus on my strengths. Chris is a highly detailed and disciplined individual whom I’ve called on repeatedly over several years for a number of business ventures where I’ve needed in-depth research and options presented for consideration. Chris takes time to understand the bigger picture, so I know that when I hand him a task it will be done right, the first time and I’m not left without a critical cog in my business growth plans. Its been my great pleasure to work with Chris over a long period and would not hesitate to recommend his skills to any business owners who want to focus on the big picture and let Chris take care of the administrivia that so often distracts us from the business of our business.”

Andrew Rickard

“I was introduced to Chris when a business venture I was involved in went looking for another partner to help us launch a new concept into the recruitment market. Chris soon became the driving force ensuring that we established a company with all the correct infrastructure to operate within the appropriate rules and at the best possible value for money, which was essential since there was no income during the start-up phase of the business. The partnership relied heavily on Chris’ expertise in this area and we found both his business guidance and creative input most valuable.  I would strongly recommend Chris to anyone needing a focused, professional and sincerely engaged business consultant to bring the proper rigor to their business projects.”

Andrew Rickard, Recruitment Manager, Austrade

Courtney Halstead

“I started working with Chris when I was at the beginning of building up my online business. I hadn’t even built my website yet. I was so overwhelmed with the complexities of everything that I was ‘ready to stick a fork in my eye.’ Chris came in like a proverbial white knight on an internet horse and has helped me set up all of my online systems, structures and website. I am deeply grateful to Chris for his extensive knowledge, skills, his patience and good humour and his ability to execute tasks whilst making it look beautiful. Thank you Chris for keeping my sanity intact!”

Courtney Maria Halsted

Ray Harris

“Chris was instrumental in helping me build my first website. Recently we undertook a complete revamp to coincide with the publication of my first novel. The website looks stunning and Chris provided invaluable technical, creative and personal guidance well beyond the call of duty. He has always been an enthusiastic and astute cheerleader for my work. His passion, business acumen and guiding common sense have been of incalculable support, both professionally and personally.”

Ray Harris, NovelActivist.com

James Darling

“I have had the pleasure of working with Chris during the start up of a consulting business. During this time Chris’s role (Director of Admin & Finance) was pivotal to the planning process. Chris’s eye for detail and methodical approach was key to the company’s launch and ongoing success, his ability to think out side the box is both refreshing while offering an educated perspective. I have no hesitation in recommending this talented individual.”

James Darling, Managing Director, Next Move Consulting

Josh Floyd

“Chris has an unusual capacity to look at a given situation from a range of different perspectives in order to develop a comprehensive strategic overview. He often surprises me with his original ideas on “what is really going on” — and this very often leads to creative and effective responses. Chris is also one of the most productive people I’ve ever worked with, and has a remarkable ability to stay focused on a task.”
