Today’s PA, the highly-acclaimed workshop for Secretaries and Personal Assistants, is venturing out of its Central London base and running its first course in Scotland on 25/26 November at The Dome in Edinburgh. To mark the occasion all attendees will receive a free iPod nano as a “thank you”, recognising their part in the continuing success of the programme.


The comprehensive two-day course is designed and run by former PA, Paul Pennant. Paul set up Today’s PA three years ago to offer high-calibre real-life training, tailored to the needs of today’s office support professionals. Topics covered in the workshops range from managing your boss, assertiveness and dealing with interruptions, to managing projects, writing minutes and advanced email management.


Over the past three years, Today’s PA has built up a national and international reputation, training PAs from hundreds of companies and attracting delegates from all over the country – and as far afield as Italy, California and Uzbekistan. The launch in Scotland will bring the course closer to its growing number of clients in the UK.


Today’s PAs is one of a series of courses designed by Paul to provide personal and professional development for Personal Assistants and Secretaries. As Principal Trainer, he draws heavily on his experience as a PA in the public and private sector. His role as MD of a small business offers another dimension to the training, ensuring his courses reflect the challenges and changing demands of today’s working environment.
