PA of the Year Awards: The hunt is on for the Best in the West

June 13, 2013

Following the success of the inaugural South West PA of the Year Awards last year, Bristol Business News and its sister titles including the recently-launched WestBusinessNews magazine, have again teamed up with prestigious Ston Easton Park Hotel, near Bath, to stage the South West PA of the Year Awards 2013.
PAs are often the unsung heroes of an organisation. A steadying influence during challenging times, they are professional, reliable and pivotal to an organisation’s success. Yet they often go unrecognised – until now.
The PA of the Year Awards will take place on July 4 when the winners will receive their accolades following a champagne tea on the hotel’s beautiful terrace.
The awards are open to PAs from clubs, associations and the public, private and third sectors.

The categories are:

   *  South West PA of the Year *Open to PA’s employed for a minimum of one year as of June 2013.
   *  South West Newcomer of the Year *Open to those who have been employed in a PA role for less than two years as of June 2013.
    * Best Event Organised by a PA *Entries valid for events organised between January 2012 – June 2013

The South West PA of the Year Awards are this year being supported by Gloucestershire-based event management company Professional Events Services (PES), which is sponsoring the Best Event Organised by a PA category.

PES has been providing event and project management services to organisations including The FD Centre and World Vision since 2011 and is a professional adviser to The Families in Business Community.

Owner Ruby Jaffer said: “We are really pleased to be involved with this year’s Awards. We run events for a lot of larger organisations where our main contact can be the MD, but most often is the PA. We understand what a critical role PAs play in the day-to-day running of an organisation and are delighted to do our bit to help recognise their achievements.”
