In just under 3weeks, the Practically Perfect PA Assist Conference will be held and as the main sponsors, we are thrilled to announce our panel. 

The Career Moves Office Support division will be running a workshop during the conference and today we are excited to introduce the third person joining our panel, Tony Gilchrist, EA to the Deputy Director-General at BBC.

Tony is a career EA with extensive experience across a number of sectors, focussing on media for the last 10+ years. In the early part of his career he held various PA/EA roles in Hudson Global, an international recruitment consultancy, initially in his home town of Melbourne before transferring to their London headquarters in 1997 where he became EA to the European CEO.   

In 2003 he moved into the media sector working for The Walt Disney Company at their European head office in London.  Starting as a PA in the HR department he then held the position of EA to the General Manager of the EMEA Home Entertainment division for 3 years. 

After Disney and a short stint in the travel sector at STA Travel he then went to Channel 4, working as EA to Anne Bulford, Chief Operating Officer.  In 2013 Tony moved to the BBC with Anne when she was appointed Managing Director, Finance and Operations.  In mid-2016 Anne was promoted to Deputy Director-General and he continues on as her dedicated EA, they have now been working together for over 6 years.

Also, joining the panel is Marianna Maniatakis.
