The Future Assistant

Empowering PAs

The Future Assistant is an innovative two day conference for Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers and Administrators consisting of keynote speakers, skills training, workshops and panel discussions. For the first time, we will also live stream the conference for Assistants around the world.

Every session topic has been chosen to enable you to future proof your skills and competencies. Our line-up of incredible speakers will inspire you, they will share their hard-fought triumphs and they will give you real and practical guidance to add value within your organisation as a modern day assistant.

During the Future Assistant you will connect with like-minded assistants, hear inspirational stories from top-level business professionals, learn valuable tips you can take straight back to the office and share your challenges and achievements in our open and friendly environment.

What do your peers think of the Assist Conference?

Check out some of our past attendee feedback

Assist Conference 2017

I thought it was a great day, I really benefited from the day and was really inspired and 'pumped' with the changes I wanted to make in myself, things I wanted to bring back to my company to try and improve upon and generally feeling reinvigorated about being a PA and my ambitions within this career path. Thank you SO much for organising a great day!

Assist Conference 2017

Thanks for a very thoughtfully crafted programme and opportunity to listen to amazing speakers.

Assist Conference 2016

This event far exceeded my expectations. I have taken away so much that I can apply to my work straight away.

Assist Conference 2016

I'm an experienced assistant yet I've never been to a conference for Assistant's before. Now I'm asking myself why?! I couldn't have anticipated how much this would change my thinking around my job role and overall career.

Assist Conference 2015

The best PA event I have been to. Focused on development, learning and career progression with like minded PAs. The Assist team did a fantastic job organising a unique venue to encourage networking and interaction. Can't wait for next year!

Assist Conference 2015

It felt like a community coming together rather than a training event. The content felt tailored, but varied and there were no barriers between speakers and attendees as they mingled and intertwined in the audience.

Assistants as information managers

Assistants as information managers

Back in 2013 HAAGA-HELIA University of Applied Sciences in Helsinki, Finland released the Management Assistant 2020 report, which detailed how the role of an Assistant will change by 2020. It is a fascinating document and many of the suggestions are coming into fruition four years on. One of the predictions centred around the idea that Assistants would become information managers […]
