PAs, EAs and Executive Secretaries are more often than not, the right-hand people enabling their managers to see the right people at the right time, with the correct information. By honing your skills to encompass your organisation’s ethos, plans and objectives you can position yourself as a key partner within the management team. This panel session discusses the skills you need to become an influential team player and create a powerful partnership with your Executive.
PANEL CHAIR BIO:
I launched Practically Perfect PA back in October 2011 and it has since grown to become the go-to blog for Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers and Administrative Professionals at all levels of business seeking support, information and guidance in their chosen profession. Practically Perfect PA offers practical tips, honest advice and all kinds of career development support specifically for assistants.
Since 2015 Practically Perfect PA has also organised events for the PA profession. Under the banner of Assist Events we hold the annual Future Assistant Conference, which has sold-out for the last two years, Assist Travel, Assist Regional Events and Assist Training.
In 2017, Practically Perfect PA launched the very first virtual summit for PAs through an innovative crowdfunding campaign. The first Practically Perfect PA Virtual Summit attracted over 500 PAs and was widely regarded as a game-changing event within the PA industry.
It is fair to say the assistant role has changed significantly and I am so proud that Practically Perfect PA has been part of the journey for over 5 years. I will continue to support assistants, give real value through advice, resources and the tools to work effectively in this often undervalued but incredibly important profession.
