HELENE HANFF BIOGRAPHER and RESEARCHER - Helene Hanff.
From early 2010 I have spoken at events, chaired conferences and delivered training workshops for more than 5,100 Personal Assistants, Executive Assistants, Secretaries and Administrative Staff worldwide. I've also coached and mentored a number of Assistants to identify and work towards achieving their professional goals. From 2012 to 2020 I edited EDPA magazine (formerly known as NAHPA), plus I have edited / published 45 books (23 authored by me, the remainder by other writers) since 2015.
I've taken early retirement from full-time working - and have relocated to Oliva on the east coast of Spain where I continue with my actiities on a part-time basis. This includes writing books, creating training programmes (with webinars to come in the near future), offering psychotherapy and counselling plus coaching, as well as singing / public speaking / officiating as a celebrant for events. I am available globally for training consultations or programmes, plus I'm happy to take on shorter-term tasks such as book editing / creation.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT BOOKS FOR PAs, EAs & ADMINs
"Brave PAs" is the only professional development book specifically written for PAs and Admins working in education.

DISTANCE LEARNING BOOKS FOR PAs, EAs & ADMINs
Are you unable to attend a training course or would you prefer to learn at your own pace? These two books offer distance learning based on two of my most popular two-day training programmes.
Purchase of each course handbook includes two hours with me via Skype where we can discuss your training progress or your career path.
MAGAZINE FOR PAs, EAs & ADMINs in EDUCATION
EDPA (and under its former name NAHPA) ran from 2001 to 2020 and was the only professional development publication specifically written for PAs and Admins working in education.
Articles were sourced from PA Trainers, Educational experts, Motivational Authors and the magazine's readership. Whilst the magazine has now closed, PAs and Admins in education can request a free pdf of an issue. A book containing articles from the magazine will be available shortly.
