About Me

I’m Stephanie Windsor, Business Manager, and the founder of Chaos to Calm.

I’m passionate about helping independent consultants and boutiques in the financial services sector turn their strategy into reality and I do that by drawing on my 20+ years’ experience in a variety of Business Management, Event Management and Executive Assistant roles.

Since founding Chaos to Calm in 2005, I’ve successfully implemented solutions for a whole range of financial service clients, including investment advisers, asset management boutiques, private equity houses, business angels, IFAs, governance advisers and other specialist consultants.

From providing expert administrative support through to business development, tender writing, event management and recruitment, I make sure your business has the bespoke package of support it needs, delivered on a reliable, monthly basis to a highly professional standard.  I’m known for my initiative, persistence and keen eye for detail, and regularly act as a brainstorming partner for my ongoing clients.

Prior to establishing Chaos to Calm, I was Business Manager of SVG Capital’s newly established public equity division – SVG Investment Managers - helping to raise assets under management from zero to over £300 million. I also spent seven years as an Executive Assistant and Investment Room Administrative Team Leader with one of the world’s largest institutional asset managers, UBS Global Asset Management. I have also worked as an Office Manager, Events Manager and a Financial Journalist.

In addition to my extensive practical experience I have a strong academic track record, including an MSc in Occupational (Business) Psychology. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Administrative Management, a Member of the Institute of Consulting, a Member of the Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers UK and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society.

I have a reliable network of trusted suppliers - from compliance advisers to health and safety specialists, HR specialists, and web and graphic designers - am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office for data protection, and carry liability and professional indemnity insurance. My contract covers issues such as confidentiality and intellectual property but I am happy to sign additional confidentiality agreements/NDAs.
