International Confex is ramping up the education for its PA Day on the last day of its 2012 show at Excel London, 8 March – International Women’s Day.
Organiser UBM announced the new-look show feature on the UK’s first ever National PA Day (15 September) and estimates there are 600,000 personal and executive assistants in the UK.
PA Day at International Confex will be free to attend and will include seminars delivered in association with Castalia Coaching and Training.
International executive trainer and Castalia MD, Susie Barron-Stubley, will lead the programme.
“We have run the PA Day before but I think it is fair to say that we did not give it the focus that such an important market of event organisers deserved,” Jonny Sullens, Portfolio Director for International Confex, told CN.
““PA Day is here to take the stress away from PA’s who organise any kind of event,” he added. “The 2012 PA Day has top level education from Castalia, as well as a programme dedicated to making events work as a PA or EA.”
Barron-Stubley said: “We work with many of the world’s leading organisations at the highest of levels to train PAs to become fully-integrated and effective members of the management team. We are proud to support International Confex and look forward to helping equip visiting PA’s with the skills they need to fulfil their careers.”
UBM is still to announce the replacement for Alison Willis as International Confex Show Director.
