Assistants love our Virtual Summits

I can honestly say I have benefitted and learnt something from every single one of the subjects covered in the Summits I have attended, and I am sure I will continue to do so.

Sally Nicholson, Personal Sectetary, UK Ministry of Defence
I love the Virtual Summits I’ve been a part of so far! The platform is excellent, and it’s a cost-effective way to learn new skills.
Abby Bracewell, Executive Administrative Assistant, Home
PPPA is one of the best companies offering training for administrative professionals. Their quarterly Virtual Summits are filled with gold nuggets of insider knowledge, and their list of virtual training is tailored to the needs of assistants worldwide. I highly recommend any of their materials as it has made a massive difference in my career.
Paula Gagnon, Executive Assistant

I have attended several PPPA virtual summits and always feel empowered and energised immediately after. The knowledge and insight we receive from other professionals around the world really hit home that either we are doing a great job or provide us with the tools to bolster our output in the workplace.

Amy Cox, Directors Assistant, RKW Limited
The content is valuable and comes both free and paid. A lot of different options for gaining further knowledge via summits, online content and online courses. Very active, informative and a rare and valuable tool for PAs and EAs.
Kate Hannon, Executive Assistant, Queensland University of Technology
I learn so much from all the different aspects of PPPA – whether it’s a webinar, a conference or a summit; catching up on previously recorded events or reading the articles, I always come away with something new, different, or to try out, and as a result, I’m always able to share tips, tricks and guidance with others.
