You own your own business. You are busy all day to make a big success out of this business. And that is why you are not only working on the things that you love the most, on which you have all knowledge about and with which you earn your income. Because so much more has to be done: your inbox is overloaded; you want to send out a newsletter, your CRM has to be updated, and so on.
However, these are not the things that you want to spend your time on! This is not why you have started your own business! There has to be a different way to do this. But how?
I have good news for you: you have found the answer to that question on this website. Work with me! As a Virtual Assistant, I help you with tasks:
- which you do not know how to do
- which you do not like to do
- for which you cannot or do not want to free up your time
Delegate to me, reduce stress and gain time to successfully grow your business!
Working virtually means, that I execute tasks for my clients remotely and not necessarily in the same working hours that they have. We make use of online tools for communication and document sharing. You benefit by being flexible; by not having to spend your budget on hiring costs, employee benefits, equipment and facilities.
Are you interested in more information? I would like to invite you to take a look around this website and contact me for a free initial consultation to find out how I can help you grow your business.

My name is Chantal and I am a Virtual Assistant & PA in Gouda, The Netherlands. I support busy entrepreneurs and managers, so that they can free up more time to focus on their core business. I have over fifteen years of fulltime experience in international B2B businesses and accustomed to working with people on all levels and from all nationalities. I have been active in various aspects of business: sales, logistics, project management and general support.
I am always on the lookout for improvement. I believe that (administrative) structure leads to efficiency, effectiveness and peace of mind!
I have started Sapphire Virtual PA to apply my knowledge as my own boss and directly help other business owners. I work from my home office in the beautiful city of Gouda, where as a virtual Assistant I can provide my support anywhere in the world.
I love to travel, hike, enjoy good food, sports, and I am a sore loser in any kind of game!
"Taking on Chantal Wendel as my Virtual Assistant was one of the best decisions I have made professionally in a pivotal moment of my company growth.
With her eye for detail and determination to get things done properly, she has certainly become my lean mean organization machine! Arranging my appointments, scheduling lessons, translating emails, handling administrative phone calls and compiling my back dated CRM are the reasons why Chantal had helped me sleep better at night.
As if this isn't enough, the gold dust really lies in her natural talent to assist people on a senior level. Chantal demands high professionalism, regardless of whether I am having a good or bad day. She also understands I don't have time nor patience to find the finer details in things, so with no questions asked she researches them herself. My clients, staff and contacts are kept up to date and well informed. Finally we have a common thread running through the company.
For the first time in a long while, it is literally a Breeze to be back in the office again! I can and do strongly recommend Chantal's VA services to any company owning friends and contacts on the verge of business growth. Taking on Chantal will be the best decision you make this year!"
Hayley Johnson, owner English Breeze
"Chantal has taken several practical issues out of my hands when making a brochure with thirty different authors. This process has all the ingredients to lead to chaos (including planning in the middle of summer holidays), but this wasn't the case for Chantal! She thinks and acts quickly, supports pro-actively, keeps a tight organisation, kept me informed regularly but not too often and gave me nudges when necessary. I have come to known her during this project as a reliable Personal Assistant, as a driven entrepreneur who is very eager to learn. I am looking forward to our next projects!"
Loes Vork-Klever, owner Vork Communicatie
"It has been my pleasure to work with Chantal in 2015. What I appreciate most about her, is her precision and her ability to keep clear overview in many tasks. If you ask Chantal something, a fitting answer or effective follow-up action will follow without having to remind her. It gives you piece of mind to delegate work to her! In this way, our sales team has been able to focus completely on our customers and executing our business plans. With her pro-active supporting role, quick understanding and clear communication both internally as well as towards our international clients, she was a great help to increase our results significantly and far above budget. I recommend Chantal’s services to every entrepreneur who wishes to create more time for their core business."
Rémon van der Leek, Area Director Europe, Bolton Adhesives
"This is my personal recommendation for Chantal Wendel. Until just recently Chantal was my assistant for International Sales job for approximately four years. I found her very organised, target orientated and fast-reacting person who does the job proactively. Besides being a joy to work with, she is a take-charge person who is doing structured follow-ups, mailings, calculations, translations, etc. Together with her we successfully delivered constant growth of sales in region I have been responsible for. I highly recommend Chantal. She is a team player and makes a great asset to any organisation."
