WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THE COURSE

As mentioned early, the Advanced Executive PA Masterclass is among the best Executive Assistant training courses in the world today, and for this reason, Executive PAs should make every effort to attend. Assistant training is an investment, not an expense - it is maintenance for EAs, so it's prudent that executives give priority to training the Executive Assistants they intend to keep.

A recent Hays Secretarial survey found that 90% of executives believe they could not do their jobs properly without their PA. Therefore, PAs need to be at the cutting edge of their profession to better assist their executives. Attending this course will provide an opportunity for Executive PAs to stretch themselves and build their skill-set.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS COURSE

Executive PAs, Executive Assistants, Senior Personal Secretaries, Personal Assistants, Senior Administrators and Office Managers.


If you improve your PA skill-set by "X",
the "WHY?" will become obvious! - Luck is when opportunity meets preparation
