Ten podcasts every PA should listen to

I don’t think I’ve shared this before, but I love podcasts, and I have for years. They are more popular than ever, and loads of podcasts can help you with your personal and professional development. I listen to many podcasts, so I thought today I’d share my top ten podcasts every PA should listen to.

I have combined a mixture of podcasts aimed directly at Assistants and more general business development suggestions. Enjoy, and get listening!
