I always think of my conferences and events as my work babies, they take about 9 months to create, they are as time consuming as my actual babies, they cause as much sleep deprivation and worry but they are ultimately worth all the hard work and bring me a lot of joy! The Virtual Summit is my youngest work baby and last week, with the launch of the final programme, it started walking! Yup, that is right the Virtual Summit programme is up and running!
I’m so excited to share the final programme with you. I’ve pulled together a whole load of amazing speakers who are creating the most wonderful, thought provoking, practical and seriously bad ass content for you guys!
Here are just a few of the highlights:
Managing your Executive’s schedule like a mega star
The single most important aspect of the PA role is to save our Executive’s time. Saving our Executive time means they can spend that time on making the organisation more successful. There are loads of different ways we can save our Executive’s time, but it all starts with the fundamental task of diary management. Most assistants manage their Executive’s schedule and most Executive’s live by what is in that schedule. So, if we can take control of our Executive’s diary we can really add value. In this panel session recorded in front of a live audience in London on the 14th September our amazing speakers discuss and share their experience of managing their Executive’s schedule like a total mega star!
