OPSA Source Books for office professionals

In the world of business, a personal assistant assumes the role of an executive’s chief-of-staff. Today’s PA is the gate-keeper to a busy and inaccessible senior executive, ensuring that only the relevant and necessary communication gets to the boss. Many of the everyday tasks necessary for an effective workday fall on the personal assistant, from scheduling meetings to arranging transportation to making decisions about office functions, décor and even leisure activities.

Cold Press Media, in collaboration with OPSA (the Association for Office Professionals of South Africa) have compiled a series of useful and user-friendly source books to make the life of any PA and their decision-maker simpler, easier and less stressful. Designed to expose relevant and suitable resources to the busy PA and her Executive, the source books are a directory of all things related to the office and its immediate environment.
