PA2.0 Upgrade Yourself comes to London

The role of the modern Assistant has changed dramatically over the last 30 years and technology has played a significant role in this metamorphosis. Far from making the Assistant obsolete as many people imagined, it has made us more indispensable than ever. Assistants are critical in managing the large volume of electronic data and information being passed to management on a daily basis. This requires a number of specific skills to be dealt with effectively.

Time has become the ultimate luxury in the modern world, as Assistants we can add great value by maximising our Manager’s time by efficient scheduling, taking on routine tasks and managing their teams and workflow as and when required. The PA position has changed from a “support” role to a fully-fledged business partner that is respected as part of the management team.

With a highly visible role in the organisation, you need to be aware of your personal brand and how this impacts not only your earning potential, but the way you and your boss are perceived. By the end of this course, you will have assessed your current brand health and found concrete ways of taking it to new heights, for the benefit of your own career as well as your organisation.

Who should attend this workshop?

This workshop is for any assistant wanting to make the leap from a great assistant to a confident business partner and is specifically geared towards those who support management and executives daily.

Why should you attend this workshop?

This workshop is designed specifically for assistants by an award winning Certified Master Office Professional and multi award winning Assistant. This enables the delegate to learn from real world examples, skills and techniques, not just the theory of what an assistant should do to be more efficient and successful.

By attending this 3 day workshop you will acquire the following skills:

Improve your PA Presence
How to deal with and manage stress
How to be more assertive
How to be more adaptable and open to change
How to manage and maximise time
Increased understanding of how your brain works and how you learn
Discover future trends and technology
An assessment of your current brand health and ways to take it to new heights
And much, much more…
The modern assistant needs to be resilient, organised and motivated and this workshop will provide you the springboard to take on your role with more confidence.
