I took my first online training course for Executive Assistants, probably around 15 years ago now.
It was a live webinar. We had to listen to the speaker via the phone on my desk while watching the slideshow on my computer screen.
It was a bit of a novelty, and funnily enough, a lot of my colleagues were watching the whole thing behind my shoulder because it was the first live webinar they had seen. It was great, I didn’t have to leave my desk, I did the webinar over lunch and learnt quite a bit, but the technology wasn’t quite ready to capture my attention. We’ve come along way since then.
Online training for Executive and Personal Assistants is common, and there are a lot of fantastic courses that Assistants can take, for free or for a small price that will help further their career and professional development. I thought today. I would share with you five online courses every Executive Assistant should take.
