This institute is designed to help maximize the effectiveness of your role in your school by connecting better and working more strategically with your school’s leadership team. A combination of time saving techniques, problem solving methods and essential soft-skills such as communicating, influencing and negotiating, will all help to take your expertise to the next level.
The two days are about you as a school EA / PA / Secretary / Administrative Assistant, and aim to motivate you and revive your love for your career, whilst helping you to build a realistic development plan for your future.
KEY AUDIENCE: Executive Assistants and Personal Assistants.
This event will help you to work ‘with’ rather than ‘for’ your school’s leadership – cultivating better working relationships, developing self-managing skills, improving your communication skills, building on your existing skillset, crisis planning and creating a plan for your future development in your role.
Throughout, you will be learning and sharing with others in similar roles the practical skills, knowledge and expertise needed for working at peak level, reaching full potential and providing the best possible level of support to your school.
Participants attending this institute can expect to:
- find ways to work better with their manager and the school’s leadership team;
- improve how they manage their time and administrative team;
- have an arsenal of tools at the ready in the event of crisis or change;
- increase their communication, negotiation and problem-solving skills; and
- identify a path for their future, through goal setting, planning and networking.
Angela Garry is a PA Trainer, Motivational Speaker, Author, Editor, Psychotherapist and Singer. She’s also a former Personal Assistant, who clearly cannot give up being a multi-tasker! With 25+ years’ experience in administrative roles in England and Ireland (18 of those as a Personal Assistant), Angela has been running her own private training company PICA AURUM since 2012.
Angela is passionate about ensuring that professional development resources are made available to administrative assistants: the all-too-often forgotten staff when it comes to training and development opportunities in organisations globally. She is the author of two books for the admin community - “Brave PAs: the ultimate guide to being outstanding in a tough job” (the ONLY book specifically written for staff working in education) and “The PA and EA Circus: integrating the many parts of the Personal and Executive Assistant”, together with several Distance Learning books, and 15 books for children. She is also the Editor for “EDPA”, the leading publication for school PAs and Administrative staff.
Since 2010 Angela has spoken at conferences and delivered training workshops, programmes and seminars to approximately 5,000 members of the PA & EA community worldwide, with around one third of these working International Schools. What she learns from working with each group feeds into her next events, so that knowledge and expertise from Admins can become a shared experience for all.
