The Conference & Hospitality Show is ALL about the Education!

Are you dreaming of stepping away from the office for the day and getting the VIP treatment you deserve?

You’re in luck because the 10th anniversary Conference & Hospitality Show is later this month (30th of April) at First Direct Arena in Leeds and CHS have LOTS in store for personal & executive assistants.

Not only will you have the opportunity to meet 230+ unique venues and hotels to impress your boss with at their next meeting/event, but you will receive a free VIP gift bag, access to the exclusive After Show party and be able to watch our influential speakers for PA’s/EA’s on the stage on show day.

In this post, CHS give you a sneak peak of what you can expect from this exciting group of speakers on show day, so read on…

In the spirit of their 10th anniversary, starting bright and early at 9:45am on the Main Stage, they have Gavin Ingham hosting his session titled ‘I am 10 – Be More, Do More, Have More. 4 strategies that will give you the edge in business and in life’. This dynamic and engaging talk will get you motivated and inspired and leave you buzzing long after CHS19 is over. The #IAM10 philosophy will leave a lasting impact helping you to build confidence, increase mental toughness and grow within your business. Good enough is not good enough any more. If you want success, you need to be the best that you can be. You need to be a ’10’.

At 12:00pm on show day, CHS are hosting an exciting panel dedicated to all of you PA’s & EA’s titled ‘Rockstar PAs – how to create an amazing partnership with your boss’. PAs, EAs and Executive Secretaries are more often than not, the right-hand people enabling their managers to see the right people at the right time, with the correct information. By honing your skills to encompass your organisation’s ethos, plans and objectives you can position yourself as a key partner within the management team. This panel session discusses the skills you need to become an influential team player and create a powerful partnership with your Executive.

The panel will be chaired by the Founder of popular blog, Practically Perfect PA, Nicky Christmas! Joining her on the panel to discuss the topic at hand is Beth Arzy (EA from Channel 4), Natalie Egan (EA at Morgan McKinley) and Abigail Jones (EA at GHD).
