PA Life Training Day LONDON, UK

June 15, 2015

‘An introduction to chartering a private jet’ is the title of one of the training sessions put on for Personal Assistants (PAs) by PA Life magazine in London on 15 June.

The day of courses is targetted at the increasingly influential body of event organisers, the PA community, with the aim of supporting Continuing Professional Development within the sub-sector.

The venue for the Training Day is London’s ILEC Conference Centre at the Ibis Hotel Earls Court.

Sessions include: ‘The importance and benefits of networking’; ‘How to set boundaries and come up with creative solutions’; ‘Ways to increase your productivity at work’; ‘Top tips on taking notes and minutes at meetings; ‘Effective ways of interacting with your boss’ and ‘Prioritising and scheduling your workload.

Speakers include Angela Garry, who has worked in administrative roles since 1991 and runs her own training company, Pica Aurum and Heather Baker, who had 20 years’ experience as a PA before she set up Baker Thompson Associates 15 years ago.

There will also be contributions from Kim Middleton, operations manager at Pitman Training, celebrity PA Donna Coulling (pictured, and leading a session on ‘Broadening the width of responsibilities) and PA trainer practitioner Adam Fidler.

CEOs of consultancy PA Access All Areas, Merryl Futerman and Josephine Green, who have worked with Miranda Hart, Jonathan Ross and Anne Robinson, will also attend the PA Training Day.
