I wanted to share with you another session from last year’s Virtual Summit to give you a flavour of what you can expect at the Future Assistant Conference in February. Today, I thought I’d share my session ‘developing business acumen on a shoestring budget’.

Business acumen is a fundamental requirement for the modern-day assistant. Assistants support people that have very strong business acumen and must match their knowledge to be able to help them succeed. Assistants need to understand their organisation and where their boss fits in. They also need to know how they can help support the goals and objectives of the business. Developing business acumen will also give Assistants a fantastic foundation and allow them to move up the career ladder. In this video I share all the different methods I have employed to improve my business acumen as an Executive Assistant and as a business owner.

If you are yet to book your place on the Future Assistant Conference, which remember is also taking place online this year, you can head over to the conference website to check out all the information.

You can download the conference programme here.

The Conference takes place on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th February 2018 at Proud Camden and online. We can’t wait to see you there.
