PA Life Summit officially underway

PA Life Summit logo

We’re coming to you live from the PA Life Summit at De Vere Wokefield Estate in Berkshire, where some of the country’s top PAs have gathered for the next two days to meet new suppliers, network with peers, learn from seminar speakers – and help us to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

10 years ago, Rihanna stormed the charts with Umbrella, The Queen won Best Film at the BAFTAs, the smoking ban came into force in the UK – and the first PA Life Summit took place (although back then it was known as the EXECSec Summit).

In the decade since its debut, the Summit has followed the same successful format. We provide our PA and EA delegates with a bespoke itinerary of one-to-one meetings with product and service suppliers who match their requirements.

A series of educational and insightful seminar sessions are scheduled throughout the two days, and there are plenty of opportunities for informal networking. And on top of that we provide delegates with free lunch and refreshments throughout, plus a gala dinner – with entertainment – tonight.

Network with your peers
There will be plenty of opportunities for attendees to get to know their fellow PAs throughout the event. We have PAs and EAs representing some of the biggest companies and organisations in the UK, including AMEX, Barclaycard, Citigroup, Diageo, Future Electronics, Grant Thornton, HSBC, KPMG, Lloyds, Microsoft, Prudential, RBS, Wagamama and Yazaki Europe, to name just a few.

A seminar programme to inspire & educate
As ever, the PA Life Summit features a FREE seminar programme designed to help you elevate your career.

  • The HELLO Strategy to Networking – Lindsay Taylor, Your Excellency
  • Making memorable events – Roopi Woodall, QEII Centre
  • Creating an awesome event by working with suppliers – Susan Heaton-Wright, Viva Live Music
