Guernsey PA Connect was launched on the 26 February 2015. It now has 200 PA’s on its data base and is still growing. We hold quarterly events and circulate a newsletter. We are a not for profit organisation.
The events are of a different theme each quarter, networking, a topical speaker, training and the fourth we theme as we see fit. The first event was an Afternoon Tea held at KPMG, the event was a great success. The second event held in May 2015 was a seminar in which we had Victoria Darragh an award winning PA and international speaker talking to over 50 PA’s about her career, her aspirations for the future and also providing some tips for us. This was a fantastic day and we were overwhelmed with the positive feedback.
The network was started by Donna Olliver when she saw a need for a network for PA’s and secretaries in Guernsey. The inspiration came to her after she attended a PA conference in London in October the previous year. After a lot of planning Caroline Renouf, a friend of Donna for many years and a PA herself joined the team.
Donna and Caroline and the Guernsey PA Connect Committee - Jen Baudains, Jane Ravenwood and Julie Twist work tirelessly, giving up a lot of their own time to run Guernsey PA Connect helping all they can to promote the role of the PA.
Please note that we do not offer refunds for events, you are welcome to have a GPAC member attend in your place, you just need to let us know. Thank you
