Overview

Building the critical skills needed to achieve your personal & professional goals
Today’s EA and PAs play a much more strategic role in advising, influencing, gatekeeping and facilitating important business tasks for their executives. Professional service firms are renowned for their high pressure and fast pace. For Executive Assistants working to tight deadlines and long hours, professional development is often overlooked and to have a successful career, progress into senior roles, or transition into other areas, it’s vitally important EAs & PAs are proactive with their professional development.

The EA PA for Professional Service Firms conference will bring together EAs and PAs from the professional service industry, to share experiences, and learn strategies to upskill, build networks, align goals with visions and how to become a strategic partner to their executives. The conference will explore success stories from top EAs and PAs in the industry on how they leverage time management and communication strategies to be the best EA PA they can be, and how to step up to advance their careers.
