The course was particularly useful in helping me to explore ways on how to manage my boss' office more efficiently and smoothly and it was really helpful to meet other PA's to swap tips. Victoria Farley - Employers' Forum on Disability
Absolutely brilliant. What I have learnt about myself will really help me go forward to become more confident – thank you!
