WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Commitment to continuous professional development is the responsibility of every PA. As the role of the modern PA is constantly changing and evolving, PAs have to develop managerial-level skills in order to provide first class personal assistance to their boss. They also have to be an asset to their organization by increasing productivity and adding value to their working partnership. To accomplish this PAs need the kind of ideas and work-smart techniques that can only be gained from regular first-class PA training.

Training is an investment, not an expense. It is maintenance for PAs. A significant number of senior executives attribute as much as 40% of their productivity to their PA; therefore, PAs need maintenance and upgrades even more than machines do. Attending this course will provide an opportunity for PAs to discover how other PAs in their organisation approach similar problems.
