The Scottish Conference and Award
for Executive Secretaries and PAs since 2008
Our 2016 event will be the 9th year that we have been awarding and celebrating excellence in Scottish PAs and Executive Secretaries.
We are delighted to be returning to Edinburgh in 2016 and aim to set the stage with another engaging, informative and knowledgeable platform of speakers. ACES has become the event in the Scottish PA calendar and is a must attend for the profession.
The focus of the 9th conference will be on developing and enhancing skills for the ever evolving role of the PA. PAs are no stranger to juggling a number of responsibilities and indeed roles, but how can you work smarter not harder? How can you develop and build on your current skills? What can you be doing to better support each other?
ACES 2016 will provide the opportunity to:
- Hear about the latest trends and developments in the profession
- Meet with PAs and Executive Secretaries from across Scotland
- Learn new skills and enhance existing skill sets
- Discuss the role of mentoring and networking
- Vote for the Scottish PA of the year
What do people say about ACES?
Live vote for Scottish PA of the Year Award 2016
After a day of training and development the PAs then have the job of deciding the winner of the Scottish PA of the Year Award in our live vote.
Once the winner is announced and the award presentation complete, delegates will then be able to relax and enjoy the sparkling wine reception.
Our venue partner this year is the fantastic Edinburgh Zoo and as part of this year's package, all delegates will have entry to Edinburgh Zoo with Panda Viewing (subject to availability) after the event.
Edinburgh Zoo is also giving a prize of a family day pass to Edinburgh Zoo for the winner of the Scottish PA of the Year Award.

The role of the PA is in a state of flux and evolution. For the first time in their history, Assistants are starting to get the recognition that they deserve as strategic business partners and not just as a support mechanism. That's why events like ACES are so important. They celebrate and recognise the role and its importance while encouraging Assistants to take control of their personal development, and drive their own career agendas.
