We’re excited to announce that Chris Hodson, Centre Director at Pitman Training London Central and West, will be sharing his expertise at the upcoming Global PA Conference in London on 12th July. He’ll be presenting on “Future Skills for Executive Assistants,” a topic that’s more relevant than ever in today’s rapidly evolving business landscape.

The Evolving Role of Executive Assistants

The role of Executive Assistants (EAs) has undergone a significant transformation in recent years. No longer limited to traditional administrative tasks, EAs are now becoming strategic partners within their organisations. This shift reflects broader changes in the business world, where adaptability and a diverse skill set are more crucial than ever.

Picture this: you’re an EA excelling in your role. You’re not merely keeping up with the modern workplace – you’re proactively leading the way. You’re confidently mastering cutting-edge technology, analysing data to drive informed decisions, strategically planning, and communicating with precision and impact. These are the skills that distinguish outstanding EAs, and they’re increasingly essential across all professional sectors.

In his 30-minute session, Hodson will explore the essential skills that EAs need to excel in the modern workplace. He’ll cover a range of crucial topics, from technological proficiency and data analysis to strategic thinking and advanced communication skills. The presentation will also highlight the importance of emotional intelligence and project management capabilities.

“The role of an Executive Assistant is evolving from a traditional support function to a strategic partnership within organisations,” Hodson notes. “Embracing future skills is essential for EAs to drive success and innovation in the corporate world.”

One of the key themes of the talk will be the importance of continuous learning. As our speaker puts it, “Continuous learning and professional development are the cornerstones of a successful career. At Pitman Training, we believe in empowering EAs with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in the future.”

This presentation isn’t just about theory – it will include real-world case studies and success stories, demonstrating the tangible impact of adopting these future skills. Attendees will come away with practical insights they can apply in their own careers.
