The event will start with informal networking where you can meet other assistants with welcome tea & cakes before we head into the main room for our special guest speaker Melanie Richardson who is our current Yorkshire PA 0f the Year.
Awakening the Leader Within
Following on from her presentation at The PA Hub Conference last year, Melanie will be highlighting the importance of stepping up as a leader in an EA/PA role and will delve a little deeper into some of the leadership characteristics she has had to develop in herself to enable her to become a member of the Taylors Leadership Team. She will share with you her own personal stories and ‘light bulb’ moments, the things that have worked for her in finding her own authentic voice and the challenges she’s faced along the way in discovering the leader within.
Melanie’s career as an Executive Assistant has spanned over 30 years, many of which were spent supporting a number of Senior Partners at PwC, both in Leeds and Leicester. Her time with the firm culminated in a position as Co-ordinator of their Family Business Network in Europe and the Middle East.
Melanie joined Bettys & Taylors Group in Harrogate in 2002. Her current role is Executive Assistant to the Managing Director of Taylors of Harrogate and she is also a member of the Taylors Leadership Team.
During her time with Bettys & Taylors, Melanie has undertaken a number of leadership programmes and as part of her role acts as a one-to-one developer and coach within the business.
She is a Fellow of EPAA (Executive & Personal Assistants Association), a member of the PA Hub and was awarded the title of Yorkshire PA of the Year in 2016.
