UK VA Conference 2021 VACon21 On-line

With the continued uncertainty over pandemic restrictions, the 2021 UK VA Conference, elected to go ‘on-line’ in March 2021, and with a new format of 4 days of 4 sessions at 4pm each day.

The result, tickets sold out ahead of the event days, and over 100 attended each day/session. – making a grand total in excess of 500 attendees over the 4 days!

Day 1 – PAul Pennant of Todays PA got the events of the week off to a flying start.

Day 2 – Richard Collins of CSR-Accreditation provided the first session, with the Grand Finals of the UK VA Awards to follow.

Day 3 – Popular favourite entrepreneur and digital marketeer Mark Wright (BBC Apprentice Winner 2014) once again ‘wowed’ the audience with his fast paced delivery and sharing of great tips.

Day 4 – Caroline Wylie of Society of Virtual Assistants shared her insight to the VA profession, based on the latest UK VA Survey. Caroline was subsequently joined by multi-award winning Panel of Experts – Gwen Backhouse (Curlew Secretarial Support), Joanne Manville (Joanne Manville VA), Michelle Smith (ValueAdd) – with Amanda Johnson of VACT also sharing her valued wisdom.

Our opt-in prize draw winner for participating in the #VACon21 survey is:

Hazel Spencer of The Yorkshire Lass VA

We now look forward to a ‘rest’ and seeing you all later in the year, as the Regional UK VA Awards get underway!
