Lunch and Learn with Lindsay – Issue 45: 10 things to be grateful for as a 21st century PA: Part 3

Goodness Monday does come around quickly! I hope everyone is well and, for those, like me, who have “done the school run” this morning and waved your children off for the first time in ages, you are enjoying a productive (quiet?) day?! 

Let’s continue with the 10 things to be grateful for as a 21st century PA : The Third Thing (you can catch up on The First and Second Thing here!).

The Third Thing : Specialist PA Training

You only have to “Google it mummy” (see The Second Thing!) for  “PA Training” or “PA Qualifications” and your hunger for new learning and upscaling your skills and expertise will be well and truly fed, including, of course, training from Your Excellency Limited Virtual Academy. 

With 14 years’ experience as learning and development specialists we are incredibly proud of our offerings including our new Programme – The Mini MBA for Senior & Executive Assistants which is proving so popular for career-minded EAs who want to become truly exceptional.  This sits alongside professional qualifications – including our Level 3 which is the only OfQual Regulated qualification to mention “PA” in its title.

Remember, our Spring 2021 Prospectus is available to download from our website here and we absolutely welcome calls and contact from potential learners so we can answer any queries you have to help with your decision making to join us.  

If you’re looking for IT training? I can highly recommend our Business Friend Shelley Fishel.  Let Shelley know you’ve come through my recommendation. 

And if you want to keep up with the latest tech, our friends over at Executive Secretary Magazine now issue a regular #ExecSecTech newsletter which is well worth the read.  Visit their website at ExecSecTech to sign up and check out the next ExecSecTech event taking place on 24th and 25th June 2021.  If you quote YOUREXCELLENCY10 when booking your place, you’ll be able to claim a 10% discount on the ticketed price.
