Making friends with admins pays serious dividends. Even at clients. I get so much good office gossip, alerts on the good leftovers from meetings, and they are willing to help a poor senior out when I’m trying to track down some obscure admin procedure that no one really knows exactly how to do.

There's been a huge push during the summer for automation of certain tasks, huge upskilling efforts in order to incorporate tools such as alteryx, power bi and tableau into our current workflow.

There's certain charts within the ACR that we populate using tableau. Clients lose their mind with data visualization.

It’s been going on for some time and only accelerating. And it’s not just administrative work - it’s quite prevalent in front and back office. Edit: I’m in industry. I’m sure PA will follow suit
