Cath Harrison has a 35 year career in PA, EA and administrative roles in various private and public sectors, including over 17 years working within the IT Industry for Hewlett-Packard.
In this episode, Cath talks about being let go during a global pandemic, starting a new business, and the world’s shift to remote work.
You don’t need a new day to start over, you need a new mindset.
CONNECT WITH CATH
Cath Harrison is a Fellow of the Institute of Administrative Management (FInstAM) and of the Executive Personal Assistants Association (EPAA) with a 35 year career in PA, EA and administrative roles in various private and public sector organizations, including over 17 years working within the IT Industry for Hewlett-Packard.
In 2020, faced with redundancy brought about by a global pandemic, a recent divorce, along with a shortage of available roles because of the Covid Lockdown, Cath was given no option but to go it alone as a Virtual PA, and Bee-Assisted Limited was born. Since launch, Cath has had a massive change in mindset, grown confidence, faced challenges, and learned new skills along the way.
