I’d been put in charge of organising the upcoming function that my work was holding. I had already arranged the venue and the guest list, now I just had to find someone to do the catering, and prepare my bosses presentation. I knew that being a personal assistant was going to be tough, but I didn’t realise I’d be doing all the work for someone else to take the credit. The function was a big responsibility, even though there was only about ten people invited. The function was to impress clients, old and new, and try to get them to upgrade their accounts with us. It was very important that everything look professional and flowed smoothly. It was a lot to take in, but I wanted to show my boss exactly how great I was. I organised with Catering Melbourne to have them cater for the event. It was such an easy process, ordering with them. They were able to take me through everything they offered and explained all their additional features, like gluten free etc. Once I’d hung up the phone with Corporate Catering Melbourne I realised that I had now taken care of everything. Everything was ordered and arranged to be delivered on the day. It was going to be an evening function so we would be able to spend the day setting everything up. The day of the function came and went in no time. Everything worked out perfectly. The tables and chairs, the food from Finger Food Catering Melbourne, the presentation, everything was perfect. My boss approached me after the function and thanked me for my efforts. She then went on to tell me that because of the amazing presentation I wrote up and all the arrangements I’d made for the function, we gained six new clients in one day. I had just scored myself a raise.
