Seminars for the PA Show are now available to book in advance of the event on the 25th - 26th February at ExCeL London.
With a mix of free and paid-for streams, the CPD-accredited PA Show educational programme offers an unrivalled breadth of opportunities for development and knowledge. The programme consists of seven theatres of content:
- The Keynote Theatre
- The Wellness Theatre
- The Key Skills Theatre
- The Personal Development Theatre
- The Evolution Theatre
- The VA Conference and Event Management Theatre
The Keynote Theatre, which is free to attend, features international speakers offering motivational and aspirational talks combined with real PAs/EAs/VAs talking about their roles. Included in this mix are PAs for celebrities such as Rachel Weisz, Helena Bonham-Carter, Julian Cleary and the VA for both Howard and Mark from Take That.
The Workplace Wellness and Wellbeing Summit is a new edition for 2020. Hosted by PA Life, the Wellness Summit will provide two days of talks from leading experts and thought-leaders with one goal in mind: to help visitors to prioritise self-care and maintain a good work/life balance. Topics covered will include Nutrition, Goal Mapping, Avoiding Burnout and much more.
The Key Skills Theatre will provide training on the core elements and skills needed for office support professionals, with valuable training on Microsoft, Outlook, and Excel. Industry expert Paul Pennant will be presenting sessions such as ‘How to save 90 minutes a day using Outlook’ and ‘Magic moments with Microsoft’
The Personal Development Theatre will be tackling issues such as exploring assertiveness, career progression or managing your manager, along with many other topics. This theatre offers practical advice on every element of development.
We will also be exploring what the future holds for PAs, EAs, VAs and Office Managers and how an assistant’s role will change in the coming years in our Evolution Theatre. Abigail Jones, an EA at Facebook, will be presenting a session on ‘Evolving Your Role- what do you want, and how to get it’.
On day one, The Event Management Theatre will be exploring an ever-increasing element of an assistant’s role, event planning – from AGMs to Christmas parties, this content stream will explore best practice needed to achieve successful events – from budgets, to venues to audience attraction.
On day two, there is content stream for virtual assistants, exploring the widely differing dynamics experienced by VAs on a daily basis.
