Marion Lowrence, Director of The PA Hub won Yorkshire PA of the Year in 2011 and went on to win the International Pitman Training Super Achievers PA of the Year award in 2012. The self-assurance this gave Marion was beyond recognition as she excelled in her role further and began to network more as her confidence grew. On the back of this Marion set up The PA Hub Network with her husband Jon Lowrence to provide a much needed service for the PAs of Yorkshire. Now running successfully for over 6 years there is a place for PAs to network, learn, share expertise and develop with the addition of being recognised in their roles at these prestigious awards. The Network expanded to Merseyside over 3 years ago and is proving an excellent resource for PAs to network and learn in the North via events, conferences, showcases and the awards. The Merseyside PA Awards will be launching on 15th May 2020 and we are looking forward to seeing PAs being recognised for their skills and expertise.

Marion decided to run the PA Awards under the company umbrella of The PA Hub after winning herself in 2011 and knowing the self-assurance it brought her. The PA Hub wants to see assistants excel and be recognised for the amazing job they do and the support they provide to their companies every day. These awards are an opportunity for the assistants to stand up and be in the spotlight for a very special evening that puts the role of the assistant on the map. The event will showcase and celebrate the successes of the assistants in Yorkshire companies. (Photo credit Sam Toolsie.)
