Ever wondered what it's like to be a PA to the stars? Or even just a PA or secretary to a CEO or MD? Well, we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek into the life of a PA at the PA Access All Areas networking event. Here's what happened on our latest event.
On Monday, we were asked to take part in a brilliant event ran by Cityco & The PA Network at the Abode Hotel in Piccadilly, Manchester. Celebrity PA's Merryl Futeran & Josephine Green held a Q&A session along with their many tricks of the trade. They told of us stories from their careers and times they'd had to draw the line along with advice of how to really succeed as a PA.
After their talk, Hannah said a few words about Beaumont Organic and the ladies attending browsed our sample sale and picked up a few bargains! It was lovely to talk to some local admirers of the brand, some of whom were shocked to hear we are actually based in Manchester.
After the sample sale, we all enjoyed some lovely food from the restaurant and chatted to old friends & new acquaintances. It was great to be involved with an event that recognises the women behind the scenes who wouldn't usually get the chance to go to such an event and network with similar like-minded individuals.
We really enjoyed holding our sample sale and would love to do more in Manchester and possibly further afield in new cities! If you're holding an event or would just like us to hold a sample sale at your work place, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's a few photos from the night...
