The event will start with informal networking where you can meet other assistants with hot/soft drinks and cakes to start. Our networking is easy-going and friendly. If it is your first visit you will be introduced to others so you don’t have to worry about being left standing on your own. This is a forum to meet other peers from your profession in a relaxed atmosphere while learning and developing at the same time. We will finish the evening with our prize draw.
Our special guest speaker will be Lucy Brazier, CEO, Executive Secretary Magazine speaking about managing your workload, multiple executives and projects:
How to Manage More Than One Executive
Most people find it challenging enough to work well with ONE Executive, but if you’re working for two – or MORE – the challenge is stressful at best. Are you dealing with two or more workloads, managing multiple communications and schedules, multiple projects and more?
This session will explore practical tips for productivity and time management that will ensure that you can prioritise, juggle and support your numerous Executives effectively and without stress.
Lucy Brazier is the world’s leading authority in the administrative professional industry.
As CEO of Marcham Publishing, specialist publishers of Executive Secretary Magazine – a global training magazine dedicated to the professional development needs of senior and aspiring administrative professionals – Lucy works with the best trainers of Executive Assistants from around the world to deliver the most up to date and current training in the market.
Her passion is for the Assistant role to be truly recognised as the Business Partnership that champions the individual and the company/people they work with. Her formidable training expertise and speaking style have given her opportunities to train, present and Chair in over 40 countries at over 400 events including Chairing the 2015 World Administrator Summit in Papua New Guinea. This has created much needed discussions to encourage Executive Assistants in Blue Chip companies to work towards becoming a centre of excellence within their company, and college students to see the Assistant role as proper profession with a career path.
Lucy has a unique overview of the role and where it is heading. With access to the most forward thinking, passionate and knowledgeable trainers in the world as well as personally meeting and speaking to literally thousands of PAs over the last five years, Lucy’s knowledge of the market and what Assistants all over the world are facing on a day to day basis are second to none. In 2015 Lucy was awarded the ‘PA Contributor of the Year Award’ by Office*. The magazine has been a finalist in both the PPA Business Magazine of the Year Award and the PA-Assist Members Awards.
Lucy runs a LinkedIn group for assistants which currently has over 42,000 international members who share information, network and learn. She also launched #adminchat in January 2012 – a weekly free training session presented on Twitter and hosted by a different world-class trainer every week. Now boasting an average of over 3,000 attendees a week, #adminchat is a manifestation of Lucy’s commitment to providing the very best training to assistants all over the world.
