Assist Conference Programme

I am absolutely delighted to announce the Assist Conference 2015 programme. It is packed full of thought-provoking, relevant and informative content which will help you move on up within your organisation.

Programme highlights

Plenary session:  Being in charge when you are not in charge – Persuasion tips and techniques
Speaker: Richard Newman, Body Talk UK

As support staff we often feel like we re not in a position to influence decisions in our organisation. But as we move up the career path influencing and persuading often more senior members of staff becomes an increasingly important skill. In this session Richard will give you practical advice on how to influence and persuade those around you.

Breakout session: How to stay in charge of your events
Speaker: William Thomson, Gallus Events

In this session William will demonstrate the use of several tried and tested event management tools and techniques all designed to give you, the event organising assistant, more control of your events.

Panel session: Working environments

Speakers:
Rebecca-Monique Williams, Adaptive Labs
Beth Arzy, Channel 4
Eleanor Marsh, Facebook
Katie McEwan, Ann Summers

In this panel session we will address the different working environments assistants now find themselves in and the challenges they face. The panelists will speak about their personal experiences working in a variety of environments.
