Pre/post-course activity

Pre-course assessment

When you commit valuable time to Today’s PA, we want you to know that we understand and recognise that commitment. We want to do everything we can to ensure that the workshop is thoroughly worthwhile for you. Being properly prepared will play a key part in achieving that success. Indeed, your success is our success.

If you get what we promise from the Word, PowerPoint and Excel Masterclass – and we know you will – we are confident you will recommend it to peers and colleagues. So we would like you to complete a short questionnaire, just before you attend the workshop, in order to give us a snapshot of the kind of person and PA you are, how you became a PA and what are your issues, frustrations, hopes, and ambitions.

When you arrive at the workshop, you will feel that you are among friends who understand you – and you are because your trainers and course designers have all been where you are now. Doesn’t that give you a warm, fuzzy feeling?

Before attending you may wish to have a look at a few tips from Microsoft.

Executive summary for managers

To train or not to train? Why bother?

Both inexperienced PAs and the seasoned EA veteran will benefit from our Word, PowerPoint and Excel Masterclass.

We will show your PAs that computer is the best and safest place to store their tasks, projects, lists, thoughts, and anything else they cannot afford to lose or forget.  They’ll also be able to keep track of them efficiently and effortlessly, become more organized and automate those tedious, mundane and time-consuming tasks.

We will show your PAs amazing tips and shortcuts across Excel, Word and PowerPoint, that will absolutely transform the way they work and save them up to 1.5 hours per day. Imagine what they could do with all that extra time! It’s not unusual for our PAs to get in touch with us after the workshop, and report a newly found sense of certitude and satisfaction at work upon their return to the office. This positivity can only mean amazing things for you too!

Why choose the Word, PowerPoint and Excel Masterclass?

What makes this Word, PowerPoint and Excel Masterclass stand out from all the others is mostly that it has been created by PAs and is targeted directly at PAs and other admin professionals. Not only will your PAs be receiving the very best in training from us, but they will be surrounded by a wealth of knowledge and experience in the form of the other PAs present. They will feel positively spoilt by this rare training and networking opportunity, and will return to work feeling confident, empowered, motivated, and of course with completely current expertise.

Group work and discussion are encouraged throughout the workshop. We don’t simply talk at our PAs; we involve them, listen to them and work with them. We make sure your individual PAs needs are met.

We know, that with so much valuable information to impart on our PAs, there really is a lot for them to take on board. That’s why we’ve gone that extra mile to ensure that your PAs really takes away as much as possible from this workshop. We provide them with easy to navigate, comprehensive hand-outs, covering everything discussed in the workshop, and much more. As a graduate of this workshop, your PA will become a lifetime member to our PA network; no question too big or small, we are always at the other end of the phone or email, ready to help.

In-house bespoke training

Even if you can’t make it to one of our venues, don’t despair – why not let us come to you?

There are many good reasons for keeping the course in-house: it makes for greater efficiency and ensures everything is focussed on your organisation’s business. The course can be adapted to your organisation’s specific needs so that it perfectly aligns with its culture and values.

Your PAs can also network and share their experiences of the course, thus strengthening the PA role within your organisation.

This course gave me the confidence to tackle Excel and the feeling that I can speak the Excel language!
Paul delivered a PowerPoint course to a group of 11 mainly intermediate colleagues. He did so in his usual exuberant, fun and very informative style. This was the second time Paul had carried out a training session (the first being on Outlook) and we all ended the day, having not only learnt lots (the short cuts are especially useful) but eager to try out all the hints and tips Paul had shared with us. Our only problem now is to decide which package we ask Paul to train in next time!
Thanks for the Excel Workshop yesterday. It was really helpful and to my relief you were straight to the point and easy to understand!
