At Callisto Associates we provide a range of professional business support services, tailor-made to your individual requirements. Designed specifically to meet the needs of entrepreneurs and small to medium businesses. Callisto Associates gives you all the benefits of an in-house PA or marketing executive for a fraction of the cost. We are located in Brighton and Hove.
Who are we?
Callisto Associates was founded in 2011 to provide a first class business support service for entrepreneurs and companies in the SME sector, allowing them to maximise their energy and efficiency by outsourcing essential business support processes to qualified professionals.
Our Founder, Sophia Lee-Spencer, spent eleven years working as a Board level Management Assistant and internal communications specialist for some of the world’s biggest corporations as well as for small, family owned enterprises in a variety of industries.
During this time she realised that access to the services of a top level Management Assistant, allied with qualified marketing support, would be a powerful tool for entrepreneurs and business owners wanting to focus their energies on growing their businesses.
Since day one we have worked as an integral part of our clients’ organisations, supporting them in their daily operations and on a variety of projects. Our professionalism and enthusiasm for our work ensure we have a growing list of satisfied clients and we’d love to work with you too!
How can virtual business support help your business?
To remain competitive in today’s marketplace it’s essential for any business to manage costs whilst maintaining maximum efficiency, and outsourcing provides SMEs with a great way of achieving these aims.
Outsourcing your business support requirements to Callisto Associates means that you pay a flat fee for a first class business support service and let us take care of the rest. Callisto Associates not only has its own fully equipped office with secure information back up, but we take care of our own taxes and additional costs meaning that you don’t have to. We also have a contact list of trusted suppliers for everything from IT support and printing to legal services and HR support. Of course, if you already have your own suppliers in place then Callisto Associates is equally happy to work with them on your behalf.
Some key benefits of outsourcing with Callisto Associates:
- You only pay for what you need
- You get highly professional and confidential business support
- You have access to wide experience and up to date knowledge outside your own area of operations
- You get more time to focus on your core business
- We can give the impression that your organisation is larger than it actually is
Qualified support for your marketing campaigns?
Well thought through marketing campaigns play a crucial role in the success or failure of any business, especially in the current economic climate. Callisto Associates’ marketing support service provides our clients with access to qualified, experienced and up-to-date marketing expertise. We can support you on specific projects or be involved at a strategic level, or even work with you on developing your understanding of new digital platforms.
Social media for business is one of the most cost effective marketing tools available but for many it can be difficult to identify the appropriate platform and allocate resources successfully. Callisto Associates can help you to integrate social media with traditional marketing channels to position your business as a leader in your field.
Callisto Associates also has extensive experience in more traditional marketing channels including PR, events management, copywriting and content creation and internal communications.
What a difference a virtual PA makes!
Callisto Associates’ virtual PA service is a cost effective alternative to an in-house PA providing all the benefits of a top class personal assistant and allowing busy executives to free up more of their time to do what they do well.

- Travel booking
- Conference and event management
