28th February 2017

The first networking event of 2017 for The Edinburgh PA Networking Group took place at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Edinburgh on Tuesday evening.

The stylish hotel on the historic Royal Mile was an excellent host and provided a relaxing setting for a very successful event; members had the opportunity to meet and learn with other Edinburgh PAs whilst enjoying some light refreshments.

The highlight of the night was keynote speaker Jamie Coleman, Chairman & Co-founder of CodeBase the UK’s largest incubator, and one of Europe’s fastest-growing tech hubs. Coleman gave a thought provoking talk to the group about the job market and the impact technology will have in the future. He predicted that automation of many roles will be inevitable but that PAs have ‘super powers’; the knowledge and people skills of a great PA cannot be replicated by a machine! The session was hugely informative and very engaging.
