“I can thoroughly recommend this programme to any passionate, career driven EA. Marguerita is an incredible mentor and her experience and advice are invaluable. My confidence has sky rocketed since the start of the programme and I put this down to the empowerment I felt from Marguerita. She has been supporting, empathetic and patient in listening to my problems and challenges and manages to turn it all on its head - I’ve learnt so much from her. Thank you.”

Why Choose PA Mentoring?

Whether you are an eager up-and-coming PA or a skilled EA strategist, professional guidance through career mentoring is the best way to immediately get on the right track to an outstanding EA career.

The independent advice of a professional EA mentor will provide ideas for your next career move, and will stop you falling back into old habits that are unproductive. If you’re tired of the rut, now is the time to seek an independent perspective.

ABOUT OUR CONSULTANT EA MENTOR

Our Consultant PA Mentor is Marguerita King BSc DipPA. She is the founder and Managing Director of Personal-Assistant-Tips and a former Executive PA with over 25 years' experience. Marguerita has been called "A PA guru" and "The Wikipedia of the PA profession".

MARGUERITA’S COMMENTS

"I am passionate about increasing PA know-how. I currently live in London, England where I grew up. I remember the days when girls aspired to be secretaries and the skills that really mattered were typing speed, accuracy and tabulation. Much has changed in the PA profession since then. And PAs are constantly challenged to add value to their business partnerships.

As a Consultant EA Mentor I work with Assistants from many countries who are at various stages of their career. I have developed high quality PA training courses, written hundreds of "how-to" articles for Administrative professionals, and built a comprehensive website resource for Assistants. Therefore, I am well aware of the challenges Assistants face on a day-to-day basis.

Today's executives expect a lot more from their Assistants so EAs need a wide and varied skill-set. I believe EA & PA mentoring is a good tool for advancing your career overnight. I enjoy broadening perceptions and stretching capabilities. It is very satisfying to see Assistants transformed and moving forward in their career in leaps and bounds.

I hope you decide to opt for one of our mentoring programmes. If not this year, make it a future development goal. To begin preparing your business case for mentoring, click on the link below to download our business case suggestions.
