  • 24 Mar 2016

Career Moves Office Support is to host a free PA training session, designed to develop the key skills of Team and Personal Assistants in just 60 minutes, on Monday 23rd May.

Essential PA Skills is the first in a series of events planned for 2016 and will welcome two incredible guest speakers, Rosie Cannon (PowerPoint pro and PA at a leading creative agency) and Bonnie Cookson (EA to CEO and Chairman at Hailo).

With more than a decade of experience in executive assistance and project management, Bonnie is a seasoned EA. In this session she will divulge her survival tips for managing the unmanageable, from impossible diaries to complex travel itineraries. Rosie, who has worked at some of the leading media and creative agencies in London, will follow with Bringing Creativity to PowerPoint, designing a slick presentation from a dull deck.

Head of Career Moves Office Support, Sarah Savage said, "Our commitment to our candidates and clients goes beyond matching them in a new role, we support them throughout their career, including opportunities for professional development.

"This quick-fire event is designed to take knowledge to the next level and offer practical tips that attendees can put into practice as soon as they get back to the office."

Spaces are limited, to book your place please email Sarah on
