Assistants love the Practically Perfect PA free resources

I love all the templates. They have been used regularly and also provide inspiration to create my own!

Practically Perfect PA is a great resource for templates, researching new tools and taking online courses for anyone new or trying to brush up on certain skills.

Well thought-out and accessible courses with a mix of free resources. A great and enthusiastic community and a place where you can feel understanding and belonging, which is hard to source in an Assistant role, especially when we’re all working more remotely these days.
