The latest Exeter PA Network seminar has proved to be a success for the group, with more than 60 management assistants attending the event at the Mercure Southgate Hotel in Exeter. The seminar was styled as a celebratory event aimed at raising awareness among the regional PA community of the various awards that are open to them, offering encouragement to put themselves forward for recognition. Speakers included Leeanne Graham, Hays PA of the Year 2013.
Rebecca Eccles, an assistant at Michelmores Solicitors, who organised the event, said: “It was a fantastic and inspirational evening. Leeanne gave a very open, honest and, at times, emotional presentation.”
Dita Dixon from the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office commented: “The highlight of the evening was the selection of speakers. They were all inspirational in their own way. This was the best PA event to date.”
Kim Glover, PA to the managing partner at Michelmores, agreed, saying: “Rebecca did a remarkable job organising this important event. This further demonstrates Michelmores’ commitment to developing talent and enabling individuals to flourish. Her contribution has been significant in growing the momentum that the PA Network movement in the South West of the country is currently enjoying.”
It was also announced that the Bristol PA Network will be launching on 1 July. The next Exeter PA Network event will be held on 9 July at the Coal Bar & Grill.
