Who we are
The Exeter PA Network, established in 2012, is a professional networking group dedicated to Executive Assistants (EAs), Personal Assistants (PAs), Secretaries and Administrators - in other words, all admin professionals. For ease, we tend to use the term PAs when talking about our members' roles.
Our mission is to raise the profile of our roles, as well as deliver fresh and forward-thinking training, filling the gap created by recession and now Brexit led budget cuts, and recognising the changes made to the PA role in recent years.
The Network provides an opportunity for members to connect with like-minded individuals from across different sectors based in Exeter and the surrounding areas, providing a forum to share best practice, enabling all our members to be the best they can be.
We also link with PA Networks nationally and internationally, and work closely with the PA Profession's Association, EPAA.

‘Great value, with fantastic "takeaways" in terms of learning and personal development… an amazing opportunity to network and share best practice with other PAs from the area.’
Victoria Darragh, CEO of Executive & Personal Assistants Association
‘Exeter PA Network supports the continued generation of business across the city and growth of the region... promoting the concept of Exeter being a place to do business. This kind of representation the local region/city couldn’t buy.
‘...regular business breakfasts, development evenings and an annual conference–all events are high quality and consistent. What the network is doing, ultimately, is to ensure the local PAs are continuing to keep up-skilled and providing a high level support service to businesses across the city.’
