Wakefield Council has been shortlisted in the Yorkshire PA Awards, showcasing success for both team and business development across Yorkshire.
Wakefield Council is up for the title of – Best Internal PA Network. The annual event is now a staple in the Yorkshire PA industry, which underpin businesses across the Yorkshire region – often behind the curtains.
Wakefield Council will join individuals and businesses from across the region, at the event which is to be headlines by former PA to John Lennon, May Pang, who is flying in from New York to support The PA Hub, who have showcased their well-connected PA community at events across the North, celebrating rising star talent and lifetime achievements for Yorkshire PAs.
The PA Hub has been representing the region with show-stopping speakers and international figureheads for a specialist, and often overlooked industry, at events solely in the North.
Events have showcased Frieda Kelly (The Beatles Secretary), Donna Coulling, PA to many stars including Helena Bonham Carter & Rachel Weisz, and Howard Webb, World Cup Referee over the last 3 years and many more talented Pas from the region.
Marion Lowrence, director of The PA Hub – the organiser behind the Yorkshire PA Awards said: “The level of talent, expertise, success and hard work is overwhelming, as were the number of entries for this years’ awards.
“I’m in awe of so many talented men and women across the region, who really are flying the flag not just for their role as an Assistant, but for Yorkshire business, which is stronger now, than it has been for some time.”
PAs are the backbone of many companies, and it is about time that companies and bosses really recognize the skills required to just ‘make things happen’. PAs work hard behind the scenes, so very often difficult issues and potential risks have been eliminated before there is something to sort out – because that is what the role is all about – supporting and assisting for success.
This year’s top award winner ‘Yorkshire PA of the Year’ will be presented with 2 Aer Lingus return flights to New York from Leeds Bradford Airport as part of their prize.
Marion added: “More often than not, PAs put the hard work into managing executive travel and all of the last minute requests and changes that occur based on the requirements of their Executives – this enables Executives to be where they need to be and therefore helping their businesses to grow.
“No doubt a challenging role, we’re pleased to be able to provide some R&R time to Yorkshire’s PA of the Year.”
The winners will be announced on June 30, at The Pavilion, Leeds United Football club.
