The Birmingham PA Forum has released the shortlist for the region’s inaugural PA Awards.
Fay Gleeson, Executive Personal Assistant to SCC’s Chief Executive James Rigby, is up for Greater Birmingham’s PA of the Year.
25 individuals from across Birmingham have been announced as finalists, with winners to be crowned at the awards ceremony taking place on Friday 20th July at The Vox, Resorts World, NEC Birmingham.
Finalists will be required to deliver a 10-minute presentation to a carefully selected judging panel that represents the PA and EA sector as well as Birmingham business.
Daniel Skermer, Founder of the Birmingham PA Forum & Awards, said, “Birmingham has a huge pool of talented personal, executive and virtual assistants who often remain the unsung heroes of business. When we first set up the Birmingham PA Forum, we knew that we wanted to host our own awards ceremony to shine a light on the bustling sector within which they work. If cities like Manchester, London and Glasgow can recognise their successes, then Birmingham should too.
“The awards committee was overwhelmed with the number of entries that were received throughout the application process. The sifting process to determine our finalists was challenging – testament to the calibre of our nominees – and our judges now have some tough decisions to make as to who to crown winners on the evening.”
Tickets for the awards ceremony, as well as additional sponsorship opportunities, are available through the Birmingham PA Forum website (www.birminghampaforum.co.uk).
