Executive PA Seminar

Where: Pitman Training London (High Holborn)

What: Executive PA 1 Day Course

by Rosie - February 2014

I thought this seminar was absolutely brilliant. They get through so much information in just one day, I really came away feeling like I understood the role of a PA a lot better. The trainer was amazing, I loved the fact that she gave real life examples to difficult scenarios. As someone on the hunt for a PA job it was also fantastic to be able to hear from people in actual job roles and to talk to them about their experiences. I don't have any complaints at all, I thought it was excellent.
