I am at the start of my career as a PA and my learning Programme with Your Excellency.

To anyone considering joining their Virtual Academy and The Essential Programme, I say "do it"! It's brilliant.

I've learned things I didn't know I needed, like the AIDA Assertiveness model, liaising with clients and how to prioritise my working day.

The assignment writing has been good too as I've been given all the support I need.

Daisy Squires, PA to Jo Mercer at Ascent Ltd
We have recently enrolled Daisy onto the Essential PA programme to support her career transition into an Executive Assistant.

We selected this programme based on the relevance of the syllabus, the qualification and the support and guidance provided by Lindsay while researching training options..

We are still at the start of Daisy’s learning journey, but she has been extremely well supported as she has�embarked on the first part of the programme, which has been important to build up her confidence as she returns to study and embarks on a career change.

Based on my experience to date, I would not hesitate to recommend Your Excellency to other organisations�looking to develop and build their PA and EA capabilities. .

I am looking forward to watching Daisy grow and flourish in her new role.

Jo Mercer, Director at Ascent Ltd
I’ve been a PA for 15 years and currently work at Arup.

As a Graduate of The Mini MBA for Senior & Executive Assistants I’ve been able to put into practice lots of my learning.

I see the role of the PA as constantly evolving. We need to be business aware and I was attracted to the Mini MBA so I could elevate my existing knowledge and build on my finance skills. .

The Financial Module of the Programme was fantastic. Malcolm is so good at explaining things and I fully understood this module straight away. I would normally shy away from finance and I can’t believe I’m saying that I actually really enjoyed this Module. .

I loved the combination of live sessions and pre-records. During the live sessions there was plenty of opportunity to ask Malcolm questions. .

As a Cohort we all supported each other with our learning and I’ve made friends and built up my network.

If you’re considering the next step in your career and learning journey, you should definitely go for this Programme. I really enjoyed it and it gave me such a confidence boost in learning new skills that I can apply to my role every day..

I’m truly grateful for this opportunity and for your dedication in making us, Admin Professionals TRULY EXCEPTIONAL!!!

I’m a bit emotional to be honest and also proud of this accomplishment. I can’t wait to the graduation ceremony.

Thank you again for sparkling a new light inside of me. I appreciate you and my cohort!
