Independent research has identified that Personal and Executive Assistants are trusted with an average corporate travel budget of $264,000-US, with 11% holding budgets in excess of $500,00-US. Executives think nothing of trusting their assistants to handle all aspects of their travel, from long distance flights through to transfers, accommodation and meetings diaries – even managing their credit cards. The trust invested is reflective of the faith executives have in their PAs’ business management skills, which are so vital to the success of all organisations.
