  1. PA Training Courses – Behind Every Boss Is A Great Assistant

    PA Training CoursesSunday Times,  22nd February 2015

    “Senior executives should do more to develop the careers of those below them. If nothing else , it will allow greater delegation.”

    The article argues that an insufficient number of senior executives are investing in training for  their PAs and Assistants.  A well trained assistant can help a boss’s own career prospects by allowing them more time to focus on their own goals and objectives. The range of skills required for a top assistant might range from interpreting financial statements to presentation skills and people management.

    “…the more you help people to develop, the better they will do their job for you.” Rosemary Parr, founder of the Global PA Association
