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!

Damian, PA, France

I love the easy style, packed with information set out in bite-size chunks, with good headings and excellent links. Check out the serviced apartment option - always a winner for the jaded business traveller staying awhile overseas. Travel pack list provides an excellent last-minute checklist to ensure the boss has all the essentials.
