  • Attendees at Angela’s Project Management Workshop at our Conference for Optimum Office Executives & Administrative Professionals gave excellent feedback on the session and would like to attend it again as a full course. We will definitely engage Angela again and highly recommend her as she added tremendous value to our Conference.

  • One of Angela’s strengths that has been much appreciated by us is her clarity in presenting information. Her scope of knowledge in her area of expertise reflects in all aspects of her work. As a trainer, she is proactive, clear, lively and organized and has been much appreciated by her audience.

  • I was one of organisers of the Innova Conference for PAs and Administrators in Moscow, where Angela Garry was one of the six international speakers.  Over 50 Personal Assistants and Administrators from a wide range of industries in Russia attended the two-day conference, and we received great feedback from them regarding the whole event, and in particular about Angela’s two seminars on pushing yourself in your role and using social networks.  I recommend her highly as a motivational speaker, trainer and coach for PAs and Administrators.

  • I just wanted to write and say how much I enjoyed it… you gave me so many handy tips and resources that I can use in my daily tasks… hopefully I will be able to attend more of your workshops in the future!

  • I will definitely use the knowledge learnt to better practice in my role as a PA. At the end of the training I am not just a PA but I am a Particularly Ambitious PA!
