Good episode? Give it some love!
I was so excited to speak with Daniel Skermer, the  Founder of the  PA Forum. Daniel founded the hugely successful PA Forum in 2016. Having worked within the hospitality industry Daniel developed his ability to connect, inspire and communicate with people. His talent at bringing people together to celebrate their work, their life and their unique abilities is obvious. 
Daniel almost accidentally launched the PA Forum. He needed to start connecting with people in Birmingham so that he could succeed in his new job. He’d been out of the country working for some time and a chance meeting with an Executive Assistant unlocked a whole new world to him. I’ll leave it to him to describe how the forum was launched but it’s amazing the power of the Assistant community.  
Daniel has worked tirelessly to host Learning and Development Conferences for Business Support professionals and award ceremonies to recognise and celebrate the PAs, EAs and VAs. Not only this, he has joined together with other regional Assistant groups to share resources and they are creating another level of collaboration. 
Daniel is a real force for the profession, his enthusiasm and commitment for what he does makes him very unique It was such a pleasure to speak about how he is continuing to put his PA Forum members' first.

⚡️About Assistants Together  I (Henrietta) started Assistants Together in March 2020. I have spent the last ten years working in talent and have worked with thousands of Assistants to help them create the career that they want. One of the things I love the most about my job is speaking with Assistants, when I interview and speak with them I find out so much about their lives, their careers and who they are in the world. I wanted to bring this to you and share what I’ve learnt and am learning through this process.  New episodes drop every Wednesday. We'd love to hear from you - drop us a line at [email protected]
