6:00pm: Managing your Executive’s schedule like a mega star
The single most important aspect of the PA role is to save our Executive’s time. Saving our Executive time means they can spend that time on making the organisation more successful. There are loads of different ways we can save our Executive’s time, but it all starts with the fundamental task of diary management. Most assistants manage their Executive’s schedule and most Executive’s live by what is in that schedule. So, if we can take control of our Executive’s diary we can really add value. In this panel session our amazing speakers discuss and share their experience of managing their Executive’s schedule like a total mega star!
