Today’s Executive/Personal Assistant (EA/PA) is a new breed of worker. They’re the ones who are always on top of things, well informed, and organized. They’re dependable, trustworthy, and honest. With their unique overview of the company, administrative staff are regularly called upon to make business critical decisions – it’s no exaggeration to say that an executive is only as good as their assistant. Organisation and flexibility are important skills for EAs along with the abilities to multi-task, meet deadlines, and work as a part of a team. They are highly accountable and often responsible for safeguarding confidential information. Global Executive Assistants Summit provides an opportunity for EAs to receive up-to-date knowledge and tools to help them succeed in a demanding environment. The Summit will provide targeted training and valuable networking for qualified EAs. This Summit will also allow PAs to explore the managerial aspects of the PA role using practical exercises and cases studies while enhancing their PA skills with the latest PA best practice. It is an excellent event for senior PAs who are conscious of their continuous professional development and would like to optimise their personal brand.
