CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (24 March 2020)
Due to social distancing requirements, and the subsequent ban on gatherings of more than two people, which was announced by the UK government on 23 March 2020, we are unable to provide face-to-face training to our customers over the next 5 weeks. Therefore, all courses scheduled for April 2020 have been cancelled. And no in-house courses can be scheduled for that period. This is the initial period of social distancing demanded by the government, which will be reviewed in 3 weeks time. In the interim we are still open for PA mentoring services that can be delivered via telephone and/or by email. You are also welcome to join our website for access to a comprehensive library of articles on PA issues. We will update this message at the end of April.
We can’t be sure how the PA profession will be impacted by the events of the past two weeks, so I encourage you to think seriously about your professional development at this challenging time. Now is the time to raise your game!

Consultancy Services That Create A Winning Support Team
For those situations where discovery and problem solving is the best strategy for improving the quality of the service provided by your Assistants, we can show your organisation how to radically turnaround unproductive working practices that hinder the strategic working partnerships of your support team and their executives.
We will work with your organisation to:
- upskill individual PAs to reverse underperformance
- audit the skills and capabilities of your support team
- create best practice and common ways of working
- appraise directors on the effective use of an Assistant
- review and optimise support team job descriptions
"We now have a team of EA’s and executives who better understand the role of an EA and the importance of the relationship between the two parties. We would highly recommend Marguerita and her services."

Result-based EA/PA Mentoring That Delivers Results
We also offer mentoring programmes for PAs, EAs and Admins who work at CEO level, and at every level of the profession. Our programmes include a 6-8 month mentoring programme that will develop a leadership mindset and significantly improve the Assistant's personal brand to prepare her/him for the next level of the profession.
The road to success is always under construction, so if you are constantly setting career goals and abandoning them, our Consultant PA Mentor can help you map out your unique career path.
