On 5th November 2016, Daniel Skermer (Founder) organised an informal gathering calling for help and support of 12 fellow Personal, Executive and Virtual Assistants from all different organisations, sectors, experience levels and geographical locations across the Region to discuss the idea of creating the Birmingham PA Forum.
Together we created our core values:
#Educational #Social #Inspiration #Aspiration #Celebration
Our aim is to create a platform to share ideas, suggestions, better ways of working, best practice, personal development and build a network across the City. We are now 330 members strong along with Educational, Social, Awards committees and Ambassadors that have committed so much personal time to make sure we can deliver this for you.
In 2017 and 2018 so far we have together delivered and created, Educational, Inspirational and Aspirational events & content that would enable many take a ways from each meeting to implement into the workplace such as
