PR Log - Feb 07, 2013 - A chink of light may be appearing in the economic darkness as professional concierge services, also known as Lifestyle Managers, are reporting an increasing demand for their services. Busy professionals with plenty of money but very little time are turning to Lifestyle Managers when it comes to tasks that range from walking dogs to booking theatre tickets to arranging flights on private jets. It is an increasingly popular way of managing a busy lifestyle and could point towards a rosier economic outlook for 2013. "We have never been busier," says Maria Alaka, Managing Director of Chiswick-based Lifestyle Management company Organised Bliss. "Our business dipped when the recession took hold but just over the last few months things have really turned around and that can only be because people have more money to spend. Our clients are people with hectic schedules that simply don’t have the time to deal with everything, so having us on hand to help out is the obvious solution. We are here to pick up the slack when professional commitments and active social lives get in the way. We ensure that things run smoothly and that our clients are free to get on with their jobs and the things they enjoy, without worrying about the mundane obligations and tasks that can take up so much time and energy."
The increasing popularity of Lifestyle Management may also point to a more lively housing market, as relocation services are high on the list of clients’ requirements.
"Assisting with moves is probably our most popular service at present," confirms Maria Alaka. "We can help with finding a suitable property in the first instance right through to liaising with removals firms, supervising tradesmen, receiving deliveries, and researching and recommending good local schools. We can also ensure that when people move into their new home they are greeted by furniture and decoration that is to their taste, as well as beds that are all made-up and a fully stocked fridge.."
The way it works with Organised Bliss is as simple as it is effective - clients pay an ad hoc hourly rate of £30.00, or can purchase blocks of hours (valid for 12 months) at discounted rates of £25, £22.50 or £20 per hour, depending on the number of hours purchased. They then just have to let their dedicated Lifestyle Manager know what needs doing and it’s as good as done!
