Level Up Your Skills & Career

Working as an Assistant can be an incredibly lonely job. You work hard day in day out and you never seem to complete your to do list. And working from home – whilst convenient – brings its own challenges. I have been training Assistants like you since 2005, and for the last 7 years have been named The Best Training Provider of Assistants in the UK. I know the skills you need right now. This is the PA Training Course to help you level you up.

I’m also a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional). I have dedicated over two decades to empowering Assistants and other Office Professionals through expert guidance, specialising in Microsoft Outlook, Teams & the broader M365 suite. In April 2024 I received a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award. This accolade is awarded by Microsoft to exceptional community leaders and technical experts and is a testament to my deep expertise and commitment. It recognises those who demonstrate outstanding contributions and influence within the Microsoft ecosystem. My extensive experience includes delivering high-impact training sessions both locally and internationally, firmly establishing me as a sought-after voice in the realm of Microsoft technologies. My commitment to excellence and his pioneering use of Microsoft technologies have not only enriched the lives of countless professionals but have also shaped the future of executive support.
