Lucy Brazier OBE
CEO, Marcham Publishing
We are delighted that Lucy Brazier OBE is joining us at our Manchester Conference and has kindly agreed to speak at this development event the evening before too.
Stress, Getting out of Overwhelm
With the average assistant now managing 4 executives and taking on middle management roles alongside their traditional administrative roles, the importance of putting systems in place to manage the workload and avoid burnout is a must.
In this interactive and motivational session, Lucy Brazier looks at the six areas that are particularly stressful for Assistants and how to manage them.
Workload, multiple managers, saying no, procrastination, delegation, difficult personalities and wellbeing are all covered.
The feedback on this uplifting session is most usually that it is refreshing to talk stress and the solutions entirely from the Assistant’s point of view.Read more
