Today’s PA is the biggest news in Personal Assistant, Executive Assistant and Office Professional training, thanks to the inspirational vision and leadership of the company’s founder, PAul Pennant, himself one of those rarities - even today: a male former executive PA.
Now Managing Director and lead trainer for Today’s PA, PAul started the company with a clear vision: to take his own experiences as a PA, office manager and business director and create training courses that meet the challenging real-world needs and aspirations of modern business professionals.
From the outset, PAul has been building an impressive client roster, which reads like a who’s who of globally-recognised brands and other high-profile organisations. He has trained PAs from Selfridges, Rugby Football Union, UK Ministry of Defence, Barclays Bank, AXA Insurance, Microsoft, Credit Suisse, Government of the Virgin Islands, QinetiQ and Carphone Warehouse. Course attendees not only come to London from all over the UK, but abroad as well. Today‘s PA has trained PAs from over 4000 companies in 80 countries.
PAul’s growing reputation and charismatic presentational style have already attracted invitations to speak at prestigious industry events such as Times Crème, Office Show, The National Executive PA Conference and EUMA UK (European Management Assistants). His deep knowledge and experience have also led to him becoming the ‘Agony Uncle’ and guest writer for DeskDemon.com. PAul's wide communications experience really helps his students engage in what he teaches whether it be assertiveness, time management, presentation or IT skills.
With the rapid advances in technology Today's PA has specialised in helping PAs to use technology to help them save time. Paul covers all Office products at all levels. He has been invited to train PAs at Microsoft.
