Have you reached a career roadblock?
Do you know you have so much more to offer, but you can’t seem to work out the next steps?
Then you are not alone.
If you have been in the same, or similar role, for a few years, you will have no doubt mastered all of the administrative tasks involved in your role. Perhaps to start with they were challenging, but now, well, that’s a different matter.
You are no doubt wondering what next? How will I develop my career? How can I get that promotion or be taken more seriously as an Assistant?
I decided to help.
I am Nicky Christmas, the Founder and Editor of Practically Perfect PA, one of the most extensive global online resources for Executive Assistants and Administrative Professionals.
I experienced a career roadblock when I was an Executive Assistant working with three C-Suite Executives in a Global Insurance business in London.
Thinking back to my time in London. I would be sitting at my desk, having crossed off all my administrative tasks, wondering what next? How can I get my organisation to see my true potential?
Using that experience, which I am sure resonates with so many fellow Executive Assistants, I started to structure this course.
How can I excel in my current role?
What skills can I hone to make me stand out?
What do I need to know if I wanted to progress in my organisation?
What should I do if I want to move on?
And finally, what inspiration and motivation can I find to help me develop my career?
Following this structure, we have put together over ten hours of amazing, tailored, video content PLUS over twenty beneficial documents to support your journey.
We have created the first Career Development online course for Executive Assistant, which is focused on, and tailored for, dynamic Assistants.
Hi, I'm Nicky Christmas
I launched Practically Perfect PA back in October 2011, and it has since grown to become the go-to blog for Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers and Administrative Professionals at all levels of business seeking support, information and guidance in their chosen profession.
Practically Perfect PA offers practical tips, honest advice and all kinds of career development support specifically for Assistants. Since 2015 we have organised events, virtual summits and online courses for over 3,000 Assistants from around the world.
It is fair to say the Assistant role has changed significantly and I am so proud that Practically Perfect PA has been part of the journey for over eight years
