Why You Should Attend

Project Management for Modern Day Executive Assistants

A transformation in the role of Executive Secretaries and Personal Assistants within organisations has taken place over the last 15 years. They now operate as strategic business support to their Executive, which has created a strong business partnership. EAs & PAs are now required to not only support and protect their Executive but also have the skills and confidence to act as a representative for them. They have become key influencers at senior management level and require leadership skills, management skills, communication skills and emotional intelligence to manage a variety of daily challenges and to fulfil the demands of their 21st century role.

The tools and techniques associated with project management will give you the confidence you need to get the job done on time and on budget. At this highly practical course you will learn scheduling, budgeting and planning skills that will take your project successfully from conception to completion. Whether it's purchasing office equipment, planning a meeting or special event or creating a presentation, the skills that you will gain by attending this course will ensure that you are equipped to take on the challenges.

This practical project management course aims to show how to use project management techniques to EA, PA, Office Manager, Senior Secretary or Project Assistant the knowledge required to work effectively within a project team and/or manage their own projects.
