Starting from just 10 PA’s who then chose to work together with me to represent our Region, we have grown the committee to 12 and grown geographically to extend out to Coventry, Warwickshire, Solihull and Birmingham, we now are 330 membership strong, which is totally free to be part of and I personally manage all the everyday running and processes, databases, newsletters, admin, communications, sponsorship, venue sourcing, speakers, content, conference calls and meetings and, Social Media. I also chair the committee monthly meetings with all 3 committees’ and Ambassadors we have now divided due to the growth so have Educational, Awards and Social committees as well as launching the Birmingham PA Awards, the first of its kind here in the Midlands taking place in July 2018.

Woman Who…Change Champion for Women in Business Category is Sponsored by Opt HR

Rachel Wade, MD, Opt HR

Rachel Wade, the founder and Managing Director of Opt HR, says “I’m proud and delighted to be sponsoring the Woman Who…Achieves Awards for the 3rd year running. These Awards are recognising and celebrating the achievements of women in our region who are excelling in their purpose, leading by example and inspiring others.”

Working in HR can be lonely – especially when you’re lumped under the compliance label! As a result, there is a ton of unlocked potential hiding in organisations and consulting companies across the country.

I want to create a space that unlocks that potential and gives HR professionals an opportunity to connect, network, and share best practice. I want to build a community of high-performing individuals who want to change the perception of HR and help businesses use this knowledge base and skill set to leverage growth, transformation, and change.

That’s why I’m launching HR Connections – through monthly meet-ups, hot seats, mentoring, and best practice shares, we’re working to inspire and empower a new breed of HR professionals who can bring more and add more value to ambitious companies.

It’s the most powerful way I can imagine to change the perception of HR (and what it can do for your business), AND inspire excellent people to enable transformation in their workplace.
