Assistant to Steven Bartlett
Sophie Chapman is the Assistant to Entrepreneur Steven Bartlett, a British businessman, entrepreneur and tv personality on the BBC One show Dragons’ Den.
Sophie has been working alongside Steven for the past 6 years and he has recently voiced an appreciation post on social media about how important she is to him and how valuable assistants are to their executives. This is music to our ears for each and every hard-working dedicated assistant out there and so good to hear the profession being recognised in this way. Sophie will be talking to us on stage in a live Q & A giving us tips and tricks on working to the highest level and being the ultimate assistant.
Despite earliest ambitions to become a talent agent, Sophie quickly discovered her career passions belonged in the administrative / operational aspects of working life. After graduating in Entertainment Management from LIPA in 2008, her work experience spanned the likes of Sony BMG, Sky One and multiple TV, music, radio and event environments. Her breakthrough PA role was supporting musician Eliza Doolittle. After five years, Sophie opted to move home to Liverpool and accept a maternity contract for Sir Dave Brailsford of Team Sky.
Once complete, Sophie was offered a US-based role for an A-list musician until she eventually found her ‘forever role’ supporting Steven Bartlett. Steven is Founder and Former Group CEO of Social Chain; an author; podcaster; entrepreneur; and currently the youngest ever Dragon on BBC’s Dragon’s Den. Sophie has worked as Steven’s Assistant on a global scale for six years in a private and corporate capacity.
