Two New Endorsements

Executive Secretary LIVE

First we have this year’s Executive Secretary LIVE. The conference features world class speakers and is an essential learning resource for administrators.

This year’s topics include:

  • Creating impactful presentations
  • Lessons in leadership
  • Delegation skills
  • Self-leadership
  • Positive thinking
  • Building resilience
  • Confidence building
  • Working with graphics
  • Design best practices

Andrew Jardine, our General Manager, had this to say. ‘I’m personally very excited to announce our endorsement of Executive Secretary LIVE; as an extension of the magazine this event has a strong focus on personal, professional and career development. The speakers are consistently of the highest quality and provide unparalleled insights from impressively diverse backgrounds. I’m in my fourth decade of work and I always get something from the speakers, whether it is a pragmatic tip or something more intangible, and arguably more important, like a new way to view the world of work. Anyone in an administrative role will benefit from attending Executive Secretary LIVE.’

Lucy Brazier, CEO of Marcham Publishing the producers of Executive Secretary LIVE commented ‘We are absolutely delighted to receive this endorsement from the Institute of Administrative Management. The IAM is one of the oldest management institutes in the UK having inspired professional business managers and administrators since 1915. In the administrative profession, their endorsement is a gold standard for quality so it is a real honour that they think us worthy of their rubber stamp.’

She explores the opportunities that this creates for you to become a true Business Partner to your Executive including developing the partnership, establishing the ground rules, communication, adapting to style & maintaining a great partnership.

The two days of learning contained in this course will be transformative for both the Assistant and the Executive.
