Develop the skills, knowledge and techniques to exceed expectations in this role

The role of Executive Personal Assistant (EPA) or senior personal secretary has evolved in this fast-paced world we live in. The pressure is on you to meet deadlines, manage priorities or head off likely challenges and failure to do so is not a luxury any company or organisation will entertain. It is now widely accepted that to be an excellent EPA requires some formal training. 

There is also a growing recognition that EPA’s must cultivate a productive working relationship with their manager, using strategies for prioritising tasks that enable EPA’s to increase their manager’s productivity.  The benefits of having an exceptional personal assistant are directly attuned to the productivity and development of their performance within the business.

This training course is highly effective and will help you to excel in your role as an Executive Personal Assistant. Apart from the new knowledge gained, you will receive expert guidance on the day, as well as a full course pack to refer back to at any time, and 5 structured CPD points to add to your continual professional development.
