The first year - 2005

The Corporate PA Summit is in its 10th year this year, having started in 2005. The inaugural event was a huge success, immediately differentiating itself with standout keynote speakers and EA speakers. Over 120 delegates attended in the first year in Sydney, with almost that number in Melbourne and about 70 in Brisbane.

The fourth year - 2008

The 2008 event was the biggest in the events' history so far - attracting over 600 delegates across the three states. Standout speakers were Peter Morrissey, providing a unique insight into the life and challenges of a fashion icon, and Melissa Doyle, co-presenter of Channel 7's Sunrise.


The fifth year - 2009

2009 was the year of the 'credit crunch', which the PA Summit responded to by offering some fantastic speakers from the fields of politics and economics in addition to our motiviational speakers and senior EA speakers to help delegates weather the storm and prepare for the future.

The sixth year - 2010

The 2010 event, in addition to its fantastic domestic speaker line-up was notable for its international speakers. We were pleased to welcome Laura Schwartz, former Special Assistant to President Bill Clinton, and Sue France, who travelled from the UK where she recently won the 'Times PA of the Year' award and written a bestselling book.


The seventh year - 2011

In 2011, we were lucky to welcome to the summit some of the best speaking talent Australia has to offer. Liz Ellis AM, the netballing legend was an absolute highlight, as was Zoe Naylor the summit MC. Dr Chris Brown wowed the audiences with his down-to-earth blend of humour, insight and inspiration.

The eighth year - 2012

In 2012, not only were we priviledged to hear Carrie Bickmore's extraordinary story, but we also were inspired by a huge range of incredible speakers, from Deborah Hutton and Natalie Gruzlewski to Captain Richard de Crespigny, the A380 pilot who successfully landed the crippled QF32 from Singapore.


The ninth year - 2013

The 2013 event featured some true heavyweights in the speaker field, including Australian of the Year Ita Buttrose, and Celebrity Apprentice's Mark Bouris. Three international EAs - including the former EA to Sir Richard Branson - and a host of incredible Australian inspirational speakers contributed to the best feedback in the event's history.
