PAs often get to a stage in their career when they ask “What’s next?” Editor Amelia Walker will be joined by a panel of experienced assistants and experts at next week’s PA Life Training Day to give attendees top advice on taking the next step in their career.

Amelia will lead a discussion with established PAs and industry experts, including:

  • Executive Assistant Trainer Adam Fidler of Adept Executive Consulting, who offers teaching, training and self-development of admin professionals. Adam also has a session running in the morning
  • Former multi award-winning EA Victoria Darragh, CEO of the Executive and Personal Assistants Association (EPAA)
  • Steve Heard, National Director for Hays Office Support and PA/Secretarial
  • And Alison Boler, Paralegal PA to VP & Director of Legal & BA at Sony Music.

PAs want to better themselves at what they do in their role in order to climb the career ladder. But where to start? Amelia and the panellists will discuss what PAs should be aware of when searching for a job and how best to promote themselves, as well as the value of qualifications and which ones to pursue. They’ll also give tips on writing a great CV and how to ace an interview.

Attendees will get the chance to ask the panellists their own questions too, so be sure to join the conversation in order to walk away feeling more confident about taking the next step in your career.
