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.
