This event is the perfect excuse for you to release any pent up stress! Unleash your fury or flex muscles you might not have used before, by learning how to sling an axe and hone your technique with coaching from the axe-toting experts. Who knows: you might even get to try some trick shots… ever thrown two axes at once before?!

About our events

Having worked in various PA / EA / Office Manager roles for many years, we know all too well that administrative staff rarely get to escape the office and meet each other.

When establishing The PA Guide, we set out to change this and get PAs out of the office to meet and socialise with each other. We hold regular events that allow PAs to network while the host venue gets to showcase the services that they can offer to both the PA and the business that they work for.

Since 2017 we have worked with some fabulous brands such as Fazenda, Maribel, The Botanist, Resorts World, Harvey Nichols, Dirty Martini, The Alchemist and Revolucion de Cuba.  Our events have covered many formats such as drinks and canapes receptions, beauty demonstrations, wine tasting, cocktail masterclasses, physical challenges and full dining experiences.

Our events have proved to be so popular that in 2019 we have decided to use the opportunity to raise funds for a local charity. Going forward, to book a place at an event we will be asking for a small donation to a local charity - until 30 June 2020 our chosen charity will be Re-Engage.

“I first attended a PA Guide event 18 months ago and have found the network to be a really useful way to meet contacts and build relationships.  It’s amazing how often PAs speak to each other via email or phone without ever placing a face to a name and this group has helped me meet my contacts and expand my network.

Their events are always well planned and it’s good to go to newly opened restaurants as I can then confidently recommend them to my bosses.

The PA Guide network has been invaluable to me, I have met many great people through it and built work relationships I could never have reached out to otherwise. I’m always happy to see an email from The PA Guide in my inbox.”
