Following the success of the Assist Conference a few weeks ago I thought I would put together a more extensive training course for two of our favourite conference topics – Events Management for assistants and Social Media/Apps/Office Tech (I can’t think of a catchy title for this one!). Both training courses are coming up in May and so I thought I would give you all a little more detail.

Events Management for Assistants

As Assistants, most of us run events for our organisations and we are pretty damn good at it too. The problem is that we often have to organise events while also managing a load of other stuff. This is tricky in itself, especially as events management is a job in its own right. On top of that we don’t necessarily have the procedures in place that make events management much easier to well… manage!

This is where our events training course fits in. I have specifically designed the programme for assistants who are organising events – be it conferences, team away days, dinners, awards or parties. We will look at the tools you need to create and implement high quality events while still managing your day job. Here are a few topics we will be covering over the course of the day:

  • Nine steps to fantastic events
  • No more boring meetings
  • Event design
  • Venue selection, layout and atmosphere

Here is the full programme.

William from Gallus Events will be running this training course. He has helped me implement the last three Assist Events so I can say, hand on heart, that he gets events and he understands assistants.

Events Management for Assistants is taking place on Friday 6th May and the course costs just £200+VAT. It is a full day training course. To book the course and to see more information check out our training page right here…

Making the most of Social Media, Apps and Office Tech

I’m really looking forward to this training session and not just because I’m the trainer! Some of my most popular blog posts have been on social media, using apps and recommend office tech. There are so many great online products for assistants and during this really practical training session I am going to show you 100s of brilliant ways you can save yourself and your boss time. I am also going to share my favourite and mostly free online training and career development resources. And on top of that I am going to make you all Social Media savvy. Here are a few topics we will cover over the course of the day:

  • An introduction to social media and online resources for assistants
  • Getting connected via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media platforms
  • The very best websites for career development
  • Apps that will make you more productive
  • Become an office tech guru

In an exceptionally practical day I will outline the best resources for assistants. You will leave with a much clearer idea of how to make the most of social media and online resources to: increase their productivity, support career development PLUS saving themselves and their executive time.

This training workshop is specially designed for any assistant who wish to get the most from Social Media and online resources. The content is designed for beginners or intermediate users of Socal Media.

Social Media and Office Tech Training is taking place on Friday 20th May and the course also costs £200+VAT. Again it is a full day training course. To book the course and to see more information check out our training page right here…

We are offering group discounts so get in touch with me if you and a colleague would like to book onto either course.
