Behind every successful leader, there is an organised and efficient executive assistant (EA). The modern executive assistant’s role has changed considerably over recent years. Executive assistants now play a range of crucial roles as key influencers, advisers and personal resources, making the EA the ambassador for the boss and the position becoming the nerve centre of business. Nowadays it is very much more about relationships as well as the tasks. True EA professionals are aware of the essential skills involved in communicating with bosses, colleagues and clients. People occupying such positions need to add value every day to their organization by being purposed and energized in the strategic and creative approach to their daily work activities. This programme will equip EAs with key skills and tools to become the manager of tomorrow.
