    Foundation Skills for Elite PA's and Executive Assistants Training Course Reviews:

    Jess was fantastic, she made us all feel welcomed and we all learned loads. Couldn't have asked for a better trainer or a group of people to do the course with.

    What an amazing trainer. I very much admire her knowledge, experience and teaching approach. The course exceeded my expectations as it was tailored to each of our individual needs. It was great to have such a small class to share experiences and areas for development. I learnt so much not only from the trainer but also from the other women participating in the course. I would recommend to anyone.

    A very smooth process to book the training, and staff were extremely helpful when I enquired about payment. The participant found the course helpful, particularly individual feedback she received from the trainer.

    Found your on-line process to be very user friendly and (assumed) auto generated emails were well timed and useful. Feedback from participant was also very good.
