Please share this with your PAs. We would like to hear their stories too.


Do you employ Personal Assistants? Stories of your experiences wanted!

Ibk initiatives and Lives Unlimited are writing a book about employing Personal Assistants. We know that it can be daunting to start employing Personal Assistants. We want to make things easier for employers and their families by giving them information and sharing things that have worked for others. The book is to help employers and PAs be the best they can be.

We welcome all positive stories you have about employing PAs, and ways that you have overcome any difficulties you met along the way. Please feel free to send in any stories you have about life with your PA. Stories can include little details of your time together; things that have made you laugh and things that have made you cry; adventures you have had together; plans you have for your future; things that have challenged you but have ended up working out for the best ; and anything else you think would help people just starting to employ PAs.

These questions might help get you started:

a) What is the role of PA all about?
b) What do you look for in a good PA?
c) What top tips would you give to new employers?

We know that telling stories about our lives can make us feel vulnerable. We will maintain confidentiality and anonymise all stories unless you tell us it is OK to use your name. We encourage you to seek permission from your PAs if you are naming them or telling stories that could easily identify them. We will not include anyone’s name without their permission.

Everyone’s contribution is of equal value. We will acknowledge all contributors including those whose stories are not chosen to be published but which help us to think about the messages we need to get across.

Please email your stories to: pabookstories@gmail.com
