We are thrilled to be presenting the 2017 Career Moves Office Support Essential Skills Workshop: Workplace Communication Tools for Today’s Assistant

Career Moves Office Support will be hosting a working breakfast at the Hoxton Holborn on October 12th which is aimed at Assistants looking to take their skills to the next level.

We are well aware that great Assistants value their own professional development and continually look for ways to up-skill, however we appreciate businesses often don’t offer this internally which is why we’ve carefully designed our event to make it extremely rewarding and completely free of charge.

On the day, we are proud to be hosting the Founders of PA Insiders who will be running 2 communication and networking workshops; along with 2 representatives from Slack, the fastest growing office application in history and an incredible new tool for Assistants; and finally a panel of top Assistants, from the Entertainment and Tech industries, who will be sharing their unique journeys and discussing the importance of emotional intelligence within the workplace.

Assistants attending the breakfast event will gain instantly applicable skills and knowledge to implement within the workplace. See further details below:


Date: Thursday 12th October, 2017.

Time: 8am – 12pm

Where: The Hoxton Holborn, 199-206 High Holborn, London WC1V 7BD


2 interactive workshops delivered by Founders of PA Access All Areas: Merryl Futerman (Celebrity PA & Director at PA Access All Areas and PA Insiders) and Josephine Green (Celebrity PA / Co-Director at PA Access All Areas). They will be exploring: how to support powerful people; setting boundaries; and effective ways to interact with senior stakeholders; as well as an additional session that will cover: networking to include building internal networks, cultivating contacts and making the most out of networking events.

We will also be joined by 2 representatives from Slack - the fastest growing office application in history who will be presenting the benefits of their app in the workplace. They are going to be sharing a live demonstration showing some useful insights into the practical uses of the application and how this can be used to make Assistants working lives simpler and more productive. Through a “day in the life” of an EA using the tool they will demonstrate how it can be used to build communities, share best practice, effectively manage projects, and integrate systems including multiple diaries, project technologies amongst others.

And, finally, a Q&A panel with an amazing line up of Assistants including the PA to the Deputy General of the BBC and the ex-EA to the Founder of BMB who is also a fully trained Nutritional Therapist & Wellbeing Coach with experience of implementing this within a business, to name just a few! They will be discussing emotional intelligence within the workplace, and through open discussion will be offering insights and experience of how to be mindful of their Execs and their team’s emotions.

All of this will be hosted at the Hoxton Holborn with breakfast included and training materials, and hopefully some new contacts, to take away. Assistants attending the event will head back to the office that afternoon ready to implement the advanced communication and networking techniques developed throughout the morning.
