Event details:

For PAs, EAs, Secretaries and Administrative Professionals. This training workshop is based around effective outcome thinking, communication and awareness tools. The tools utilise Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques that have been developed and utilised by leading edge organisations in order to achieve excellence.

The learning is created through a combination of trainer input, group and breakout room exercises and discussion.  There is an emphasis on fun and experiential learning to make the tools and techniques practical and instantly “usable” in your role as a PA.  A PA with PA (Perfect Awareness) will have more flexibility, stronger relationships and therefore the ability to work more effectively and efficiently in supporting individuals, teams and the business as a whole
