Marion Lowrence, Director at The PA Hub, organisers of the Awards, commented on the evening: “We really are overwhelmed by the phenomenal calibre of entries from across Yorkshire this year. We started the awards last year, in a bid to put Yorkshire PA’s on the map, and really give them a voice. What has happened since has astounded us. Yorkshire PA’s have not just found their voice, they have found their feet, and joined forces as a united network, challenging their roles and actively taking up career development programs to be the best support teams across the region. Yorkshire businesses truly are very lucky to have such a highly motivated, ambitious network of Assistants taking the reins and helping to take Yorkshire forward.”

We are delighted to be able to support the work of Marion and Jon at the PA Hub and will continue to work closely with them going forward.”
