Case Study – AVON Cosmetics

Avon Cosmetics is a world class brand and such a brand requires PAs of excellence. In 2009 Claire Lovitt started the Avon PA forum where PAs can meet on a quarterly basis to share best practice. Twenty five PAs from across the Avon business attended a one-day development event and The Development Company was the chosen provider.

The PA’s selected a fast paced, fun event in which four subject areas were chosen:

  • Interruptions
  • Communication styles
  • Work/Life balance
  • Managing Stress

“I would like to thank you once again for a fantastic day. All of the Assistants very much enjoyed the event, I am receiving constant feedback! I would very much like to have this as an annual event with The Development Company.”
Claire Lovitt, Executive Assistant, Avon Cosmetics
