Miriam's second book called "Behind The Scene of a PA"
The above book will be launched soon. It is a book that will change lives of many PAs. It covers a lot of information that is Corporate related in terms of what is expected of today's PAs etc.
Soon many PAs, Executive Secretaries will find themselves with no jobs because managers and the top executives do their own work. We are living in a world of modern technology which is moving so fast and sometimes I wonder if here in Africa we will cope with its demands and the finance part of it.
I urge every PA in whatever organisation or company to equip themselves with skill that are in demand in order to sustain their position and also to be marketable in future.
