Summary of The Definitive Executive Assistant and Managerial Handbook
A Professional Guide to Leadership for all PAs, Senior Secretaries, Office Managers and Executive Assistants

They are responsible for the in-office work of the CEO and other senior executives. Sue France explores the qualities assistants should embody and identifies the skills they need. getAbstract recommends France’s primer as a useful learning aid and reference tool for personal assistants and other business administrators.
