The Story of the Positive PA
I am Ann-Marie Brennand, EA, winner of 2021 City AM PA Award for positivity & resilience and author of the Positive PA. I initially created this blog to share, what I hope, will be useful nuggets of information and insights for other PAs and EAs. In 2016 I accidentally fell into being a PA, I soon realised that this was a brilliant role to have within an organisation because, let's face it, us PA/EAs are the 'beating heart' of an organisation. We get front line exposure to the business operations and by supporting our Executives can have a direct impact on business performance. We wear many hats from events managers, culture creators, strategic partners, minute takers, considerate calendar coordinators, wellbeing supporters, meeting enablers and action implementers. With all of these roles within our responsibility, we are the central cog of our teams, departments and organisations that keeps things moving.
