Success for Personal Assistants

The PA profession has evolved into a business partnership role. A role that enables the next generation of first-class personal assistants to flexibly deploy the expertise for their respective executive, board and organization. We are at the forefront of this change.

We know better than anyone that this next generation of first-class personal assistants is and must be of a particularly high quality. The next generation of first-class personal assistants has earned their spurs in business. They are well-educated (professional and intellectual ability at the level of higher professional education and university), ambitious, digital proof, internationally oriented and strategically skilled.

They are a business partner of the executive board who are able to advise, act proactively and undertake their own initiatives. With a clear view of the dot on the horizon and also taking control of the route towards that dot.

Contemporary executives and organizations seeking to respond optimally to the latest trends and developments, simply cannot do without this next generation of first-class personal assistants.

We have outlined our principles and how these will benefit you, in a brand manifesto. This manifesto, together with our passion for personal assistance, guides all our activities.

DISC maps preferred behavior and communication in various environments. Contributing to an (improved) understanding of what motivates you and others and why you and others make specific decisions. DISC improves open communication, personal effectiveness and strengthens relationships. We have been qualified to use DISC as an instrument in our search for our client’s ideal personal assistant (and your ideal role!).
