Recognition for the regions top PAs at the South West PA of the Year Awards 2013

Luxury hotel Ston Easton Park, near Bath, played host to the South West PA Awards 2013 which presented three prestigious awards, including: PA of the Year, PA of the Year Runner Up and Best Event Organised by a PA.

50 people, from 15 local companies and organisations, attended the award ceremony organised by Bath Business News.

The winner of the South West PA of the Year award is Kelly Richardson from the South Western Ambulance Service. Kelly was nominated by her colleague, also a PA, Joanne Payne.

The winner of South West PA of the Year Runner Up is Lisa Fairbairn from Aligra Personnel. Lisa was nominated by Operations Director, Andy Rowlatt.

The winner of Best Event Organised by a PA is Maria Fuller from Teleperformance, nominated by Adam Gould, their Director of Commercial Services.

PAs are often the unsung heroes of an organisation. A steadying influence during challenging times, they are professional, reliable and pivotal to an organisation’s success. Yet they often go unrecognised. These awards are the only ones in the region dedicated to highlighting the role of PAs and the vital work they do.

The South West PA Awards event manager, Anita Jaynes, Director at Yantra Media, said: “We are thrilled with the response this year. The entries were so strong it was a very hard job for the judges to choose the winner.”

“It Is very apparent how important these people are to their directors and managers with comments such as “she is not just my left hand, but my right. I think this sums up how pivotal a PA’s role is in a business. “We are delighted to be working with Ston Easton Park as a venue, they provide the perfect setting for a relaxed award ceremony in a stunning environment. We all enjoyed a champagne afternoon tea yesterday showcasing the venue’s talents.”

Supporters of the South West PA Awards 2013 include: Professional Event Services, Office Show 2013, AMPMPA, Institute of Administrative Management, Accord Office, Bath Racecourse and Thermae Bath Spa.
