Date: 7 July 2015 18:00

There are now many demands on a PA and varying titles for that role.  Amongst our members is a considerable amount of experience across vastly differing sectors of employment.  Join us to delve further; with your participation, into what makes a PA exceptional:

  • Why does your Boss need you?
  • How you become the right hand ‘man’ as you develop your working relationship over time
  • How you sort out routine tasks from those that should be prioritised so as to use his time and yours to the best advantage.Image by Photstock at
  • What is in a name – eg Personal Assistant, Executive Assistant, Office Manager, Secretary, Virtual Assistant and do they all basically mean the same thing
  • What does a name/ title convey?
    • To peer group at work
    • To peers in membership club
    • To third parties
  • Your expectations?
    • Remuneration
    • Status
    • Length of hours
