Advance your career with Catherine Arden’s session answering the questions: where should PAs draw the line between assisting, managing – and leading? whether representing your boss at meetings, or organising conferences, the modern PA assumes more responsibility than ever before; however, how do you invite recognition, reward and remuneration for the value you’re bringing to the company?
