LUCY BRAZIER: The Modern Day Assistant as a Strategic Business Partner

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

Since the recession began eight years ago, the role of the Assistant has changed beyond recognition. There has never been a more confusing time to be an Assistant because the responsibilities have developed so fast.

Two years ago, the American Society of Administrative Professionals proved beyond doubt that Assistants are the new middle management. In order to take advantage of the new breed of Assistant, both companies and the Assistants themselves need to understand that the role has been reinvented. 

In this Masterclass, Lucy Brazier looks at the role past, present and future to explain why it has developed how it has. 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.

This one day event will inspire and motivate you to be the best Assistant you can be.  Past attendees to Lucy's Masterclasses have described as “one of the most productive and inspiring course I have been on!" and "I have come out feeling inspired, confident, and have learnt so much about myself as an assistant and the path I want to take to help me transition and grow"
