The PA Hub Conference is always a worthwhile investment in your development and career as an EA/PA. This year's conference was no exception; the speakers were engaging, fun and relevant. I came away empowered and energised. Thank you to all the speakers and to Marion and Jon for organising.

It was my first conference this year and was so pleased it was in my home town! The day was very well thought out and full of content and I came away buzzing with ideas and motivation.

Another fantastic conference organised by the PA Hub with insightful and interesting speakers. Also a fantastic pre-conference networking event the night before.
