Multi Award-Winning Executive Assistant
Winner of the Miss Jones PA/EA of the Year 2022
Award-Winning Senior Executive Assistant
Are you interested in sponsoring this event?
This is great for handling objections, anything that would stop someone from nominating someone or themselves. For example:
I’d love to apply but I’m not sure if I have done enough. Should I apply?
We get this a lot for members of the assistant community. It can be hard to talk about yourself and brag a little. As they say, “You have to be in it, to win it.” There is no harm in applying. Make sure you check the award criteria, eligibility details, and that you answer the nomination form questions carefully for the best possible chance to be selected.
Can I nominate someone for more than one award?
Absolutely but you will need to complete a nomination form for each award.
Just make sure you put which awards you are nominating them for and make sure you give some supporting statement that supports nomination for each chosen award.
