The Apprentice winner Ricky Martin and his PA Sandy Chander will be taking to the stage at office* later this month.
Martin who won the BBC show in 2012 and is now the founder of Hyper Recruitment Solutions, will be gracing the Keynote Theatre on Wednesday 28 February, alongside Chander.
During the session, the duo will be answering questions, as well as taking input from the audience, which will offer attendees a host of practical advice and insights applicable to the daily roles of all PAs.
Martin and Chander are both visiting the show as part of their longstanding support of children’s charity, Jeans for Genes, which is also the official charity partner for office* this year.
“We are delighted to have the support of 2012 BBC Apprentice winner Ricky Martin. Ricky has been an ambassador of our charity fundraising appeal for over five years. As the founder of HRS, Ricky brings a huge passion for science to Jeans for Genes Day,” said Laura Pattison from Jeans for Genes.
“Recently, Ricky visited supporting schools helping inspire budding scientists to pursue a career in genetics in the hope that we can build a better future for children affected by life-altering genetic disorders.”
Duncan Siegle, event director of office*, added: “Sandy and Ricky bring both sides of the PA and the boss viewpoint to this question orientated session. The additional involvement of fame to Ricky’s working life means this session can look at the PA role in life beyond the office. Sandy will enlighten the audience on high profile events, gaining PR opportunities, and the unique benefits and downfalls of being a celebrity’s PA.
“The session complements the show as a whole, which will provide attendees with personal development opportunities. Visitors to the show can attend sessions within the Keynote Theatre, book specific training sessions, meet relevant suppliers within the exhibition hall, and network with their peers, amongst many other visitor experiences.”
office* takes place from February 28 to March 1 at Olympia London.
