Review:

"I wish I had this book when I started work in an office many years ago - very practical, motivational, easy to read and immensely helpful for anyone who wants to be a top notch personal assistant." Amazon UK Customer Review. "A very well written and comprehensive book for anyone who is either considering a career as a PA or secretary or someone who is starting out in their career as one. The information in the book provides a good grounding and explains the role of the PA well for those who have little or no experience, very thorough and easy to read and also useful for secretarial schools and colleges." Amazon UK Customer Review "This really is a very practical guide. I studied Business Administration and for two years have been in an office administration position. I recently decided that I wanted to be a Personal Assistant of some sort although I did have some doubts about whether such a role would suit me. I thought that I understood what the position entailed but I was not really sure until I read Maria Fuller's fabulous new book." Amazon UK Customer Review "5***** Great book, so many practical tips and food for thought re various career routes. Thoroughly recommend it!" Amazon UK Customer Review

About the Author:

"How to be a PA is the book I wish I could have purchased when I first started out as PA. 20 years ago there was nothing available for PA's by way of a learning and development guide. Recently, I again searched Amazon to see what was available for PA's and again was disappointed by the options. That discovery led me to write my book and has enabled me to pass my career experience over to a new generation of career hungry PA's". Author and EA, Maria Fuller.

Maria Fuller is a full-time, successful, Executive Assistant and is currently employed by global, customer service giant Teleperformance, as EA to the CEO UK and South Africa. Maria has enjoyed an accomplished career, working for large multinationals including Marsh & Mclennann, Halifax Bank of Scotland, Bank of Ireland, Berwin Leighton Paisner and Integreon. Maria regularly writes features for professional PA Magazines, has co-ordinated in excess of 5,000 business trips, and has managed corporate events around the world.
