Event description


The role of Executive Support has changed forever! Are you ready to embrace that change and fulfil your potential?

84% of our attendees, across the world, tell us that LIVE is either THE best or one of the best conferences that they have ever attended. That is because our CEO, Lucy Brazier, spends most of her life attending conferences globally – both large and small, in order to source the most inspiring speakers and the most relevant topics to ensure that you get to see the best of the very best.

Like the magazine, LIVE doesn’t bring you the run of the mill or the obvious. We are continuously looking for new ways to teach the skills that will futureproof your role and ensure you learn, thrive and excel in your career.

Included with your ticket are two days of:
> Intensive, practical workshops
> Best practice skills & advice from trainers who support the world’s leading EAs.
> Leadership & development training
> Opportunities to build your network with business contacts and top-suppliers
> Training acknowledged by a certificate upon completion
> Networking Reception
> Gala Dinner

****** Meet, Network & Learn ******
