(Please register at bottom of page)
The event will start with informal networking where you can meet other assistants with a welcome drink and canapés. Our networking is easy-going and friendly. If it is your first visit you will be introduced to others so you don’t have to worry about being left standing on your own. This is a forum to meet other peers from your profession in a relaxed atmosphere while learning and developing at the same time. Exhibitors include Pitman Training and Deliveroo.
We have special guest speaker Adam Fidler talking about Effective Boss/PA Routines.
Adam Fidler is a PA Trainer Practitioner who offers training to PAs and office professionals. He is former PR Officer for European Management Assistants (EUMA), but remains on the Advisory Board of EUMA UK.
After graduating with a degree in business studies in 1999, Adam has worked as a Board-level PA in a variety of blue-chip organisations, including Boots PLC and Bank of America. He is currently Executive Assistant to the Chief Executive of Salford City College, and secretarial tutor.
Adam’s best selling PA course ‘From good to outstanding’ regularly runs in London through Pitman Training and CBM Training in South Africa.
Effective Boss/PA Routines
In this inspiring seminar, Adam Fidler shares with everyone his top strategies for effective PA/Boss working and discusses his observations on how PAs can improve the effectiveness of their Boss (and themselves!) by a structured and disciplined way of working. The seminar covers:
– Why emailing the Boss is bad for your health!
– Making Boss/PA routines fun.
– The single most important asset to the Boss.
– The Boss Folder and ‘batching’.
– Using the diary more effectively – so the Boss can ‘self serve’.
– The Day Pack.
– How PAs fail by trying to be superman or superwoman! Are you waving the magic wand?
– Pushing back and saying ‘no’ with confidence, and diplomacy – why behaviours breed behaviours.
– Transactional Analysis in relation to the PA role.
We will finish the evening with our prize draw.
