Our Conference 2019

We are delighted to present the first ever...

Birmingham PA Forum Learning and Development Conference

Open to Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Virtual Assistants as well as Office Managers and all colleagues in support roles across the region.

Taking place at Unique Venues Birmingham (formally The Rep Theatre) on Wednesday 6th February 2019.


Historically, many shows of this nature take place in the capital, but having sent out a survey to our members,we have built this day around all the feedback which asked for a more local event.

During the day we will have two keynote, motivational and educational speakers:

Lara Morgan
Entrepreneur and regular commentator on the BBC and Sky News current affairs.

Mandy Hickson
The second woman to fly the Tornado GR4 operationally and, since soaring on from the RAF, Mandy now draws on her experiences of strategic decision-making, leadership under pressure and communication to inspire others. Her charisma and practical takeaways both engage and train audiences.

We will also be holding a panel discussion about the “Ever changing role of a PA”, hearing from and putting your questions to industry experts, representation bodies and media.
Confirmed on the panel are
Lucy Brazier of Executive Secretary Magazine
Jayne Forgham, Personal Assistant at PwC
Matthew Hammond, Midlands Regional Chairman PwC
Andrew Jardine of Institute of Administrative Management
Elizabeth Wakeling from International Management Assistants
