Practical PA Seminar

Written and delivered by top PA Adam Fidler, this one-day seminar introduces practical strategies and systems of working to help secretaries and PAs stay focussed and work more effectively especially when under pressure and dealing with high workloads.

By using a number of proven systems and working in a methodical way, PA’s can ensure they are fully aware of current and outstanding priorities, and are able to differentiate between items that need actioning now, and items which are ongoing or pending.

The seminar also looks at how a systematic approach to the way the PA works will foster improved communication and a stronger relationship with their boss or the team they support.
