Perth EAs and PAs popped by to say hello at


the Executive PA Magazine stand at the Perth Event Show (see the photo on page 70). The good folk at Perth Convention Bureau ran a buyers’ famil, and one of the highlights was being shown around the workshop of Phenomenon Creative Event Services workshop by director Paul Cumming (above). Talking about trade shows, watch out for the latest


copy of Executive PA Magazine in the showbags at the twin events Sydney Event Showcase and ABEE (see Events Made Easy on page 39). On a more serious note, the perils of using technology


have been in the news. Health professionals have reported that more teenagers are seeking treatment for problems caused by hours spent hunched over laptops and using hand-held devices, according to St George & Sutherland Shire Leader in Sydney. Read more in our story For Pain, Take a Tablet... on page 26, and while on the subject of technology and health, read Taking a Stand at the Office on page 63. Meanwhile, there’s a Melbourne Cup Carnival special for our readers on page 54.
