Top Award for local Executive Assistants
Emily Darnell and Esther Dawson, both Executive Assistants to the CEO’s of two successful Sussex businesses, respectively PVL UK in Burgess Hill and Ridgeview Wine Estate on Ditchling Common, picked-up a prestigious award at the Manchester PA Awards on 6th November. They have been recognised with the Best External PA Network award for their work in setting-up and developing the Sussex PA Network.
The Sussex PA Network was founded in July 2015 and is a free-to-join professional networking and learning group for Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Office Managers, Admin Assistants and Virtual Assistants. Esther and Emily established the group when they were unable to find a network or support group in their area for EAs and PAs. They are both passionate about their work and understand how dramatically these roles have changed over the last 10 to 15 years through developments in technology, work environments and working practices.
Emily and Esther were delighted with the award, with Emily explaining: “We were thrilled to pick-up the award. It was a complete shock as while we were delighted to have been shortlisted, we didn’t expect to win! It’s great recognition for the strength of the Sussex PA Network and we look forward to continuing its successful growth.”
The most recent Sussex PA Network event was held at the stylish Malmaison in Brighton on 15th October. Keep an eye on www.sussexpanetwork.co.uk for more information or follow @SussexPANetwork on Twitter to get involved.
