Course description

The role of Executive Assistants, Executive PAs & Personal Assistants at Chairman and CEO level is exciting, fascinating and challenging. Working at the top requires a diverse range of skills and abilities from leadership and management capabilities, heightened awareness and curiosity, ability to weigh importance of various tasks, thorough knowledge of the organisation and its working patterns, business sense, persistence, ability to manage projects externally and internally. At the C-Suite level it is expected that you will make a personal commitment to self development through the way you express yourself, either in words, actions, presentation, appearance, attitude or skills. 

This Masterclass will be delivered by a former EA to Chairman of BT plc, Rosemary Parr. Her 30 years of experience as a PA and EA has included working for 3 Chairman, 2 CEOs and a Member of Parliament.  Her final role before qualifying as a Motivational Coach & CIPD L&D Practitioner & Trainer was working for Sir Christopher Bland former Chairman of BT plc (2001-2007). In this role she managed 4 Chairmanships and 1 Advisory Role for the Chairman which required stepping up into her own Executive PA Leadership, using her initiative, being proactive, being 10 steps ahead of her Chairman and working in a fast paced environment.

Quote from Richard Pettinger, Author of Introduction to Management on The Role of the Personal Assistant

"The PA to a CEO normally exerts great informational influence.  The PA is used as a sounding board and critic for possible and proposed courses of action. The PA therefore becomes an exerter of influence as the levels of mutual trust and confidence grow, and the relationship is reinforced if the judgement of the PA is shown to be sound. PAs become the focus for lobbies and support from elsewhere in the organisation because they can (or are perceived to) provide a route to the sources of power. They have low status but high influence. They also become a source of quality information both for the manager for whom they work and also potentially for the rest of the organisation".
