Advanced Personal/Executive Assistant Development Programme (3 Days)



Our comprehensive three day programme encourages participants to adopt a more pro-active mindset, with a clearer appreciation of the role of a Personal/Executive Assistant and its impact on their organisation. They will undertake a positive, honest assessment of their performance as a PA/EA. Over the three days they will develop their skills for organising work to achieve goals and make full use of the abilities and potential of those in the wider team.

As a result of the programme, they will be better able to show initiative, take responsibility and ownership for their actions to achieve better results.

All programmes are limited to smaller numbers (often less than five) for the best learning experience and all delegates are asked to complete and return our pre-programme questionnaires to enable us to tailor the programme to their requirements/other delegates attending the three-days.

The start dates of the programme are shown on the right.

Timings: 9.30 am to 4.30 pm on each day. The final day may finish earlier for smaller groups of delegates.

We will continue to review the government guidance through 2020/21 to ensure all our small group training courses allow for adequate social distancing. We will always select a spacious training room and adjust the delivery methods to take into account the need for social distancing.

We also offer the option of Video/Tele-Conferencing training/coaching through Zoom.

Booking confirmations: We will email you to confirm receipt of your booking within five working days. A confirmation invoice will be issued to either request payment by either BACS/cheque or confirmation of payment if you have made a card payment already through our World Pay Account.  Again this will be issued within five working days. Also detailed joining instructions are normally released by email at least seven working days prior to the date of the course.

We look forward to receiving your booking and welcoming you onto the course.
