We will change working life as you know it through 2 days of:

  • Intensive, practical workshops
  • Best Practice Skills & Advice from Trainers who support world leaders
  • Leadership & Development Training
  • Opportunities to build your network with business contacts and top suppliers
  • Training certificate upon completion

Training you will attend over the two days:

  • Two half-day Masterclasses
  • A keynote presentation
  • Case studies
  • Practical presentations
  • New suppliers
  • A Delegate Workbook Pack

In addition to the above benefits, there will be many networking opportunities including a Welcome Reception and a Gala Dinner. These will offer the opportunity to meet other senior administrative professionals. They will provide access to a wealth of shared knowledge and an opportunity to understand how others tackle common challenges. It will also likely lead to future contact that will provide ongoing benefits.

Delegate feedback from global Training Sessions during 2017:

"On the first day of Executive Secretary Live, I learnt more from my peers and the fantastic lineup of subject matter experts who were presenting than I had from several courses over the previous three years.

Executive Secretary Live opened the door for me to be able to provide that real Executive Assistance support relationship that we are all looking for with our Executives as I learnt how to manage projects, think strategically, write reports on my Executive’s behalf, represent them at high-level meetings, etc. when they were unavailable and truly be that right hand, go-to person.

If there is only one conference you can attend, make it this one. You will go away with a plethora of skills and tips from those who you’ve networked with which you can implement immediately and make dramatic changes to how you work and support your executives.”

“A truly impressive line-up of speakers, both in terms of content and delivery.”

“First class speakers, great networking and a real room full of positivity and inspiration.”

“I have found a renewed passion for my role. I have read the books I bought at the conference from cover to cover and reviewed both my role and office environment from a new perspective. Now back in the office, I have reorganised my work environment, initiated several new organisational procedures and completely changed the way in which I work. It has not gone unnoticed by my colleagues.”

“A well-balanced programme between the practical, the life experience and the inspirational.”

“I have a renewed passion for my job.”

*Please note that because of the limited number of places at this event, once booked, your place cannot be cancelled. You are, however, able to transfer your place to a colleague or postpone your place until November 2019.
