Requirements for a Personal Assistant
Loh Tean Hin, CxO / Board, Indonesia, Member
I was thinking of PA but got a secretary instead.
Some common attributes to PA are: accounting experience, good social values, superior memory remembering dates of appointment etc, think-out-of box of what the superior misses, report attributes of all staff, works well as a team.
 

 
Executive Coordinator

You may be looking for an "executive coordinator" or "board secretary" to assist the board in completing work through interaction with the various groups across the company. The position analyzes issues, writes briefing notes, coordinates budget compilation, interprets board policies, coordinates client/customer/employee surveys, develops internal procedures, etc.
The seven competencies required (based on my order of preference) are analytical thinking, relationship building, effective communications, results orientation, process management, service orientation, and conflict management.
The role will also vary based on the size and complexity of the company and board operations.
