I can’t quite believe I am writing about our 5th conference! I have to pinch myself sometimes that we have come this far because when I started the blog back in 2011, I didn’t think eight years later I’d be welcoming over 125 Assistants in London and over 300 online to the Future Assistant Conference.

We are delighted to be welcoming Lindsay Taylor, Director of Your Excellency Limited to the Virtual Summit on 22nd June 2018. More details of her beneficial session will be shared soon.

I have just arrived back in Barcelona after a pretty roller coaster week in the UK, which included running the two day Future Assistant Conference in Camden and an overnight stay at the Royal London Hospital with my one year old.

Do you organise meetings, away days, conferences, private dinners, summer parties, teambuilding or other events? As a PA or EA, finding the perfect venue can often be tough – especially when you’re simply asked for ‘something different’! But there’s one thing you can do to ensure you always make the right choice.

I was recently watching a brilliant interview with the former Assistant to Mark Zukerberg, Anikka Fragodt. During her presentation she said that she was always open and approachable with her colleagues at Facebook because she felt part of her role was to council her colleagues and pass their fears and concerns onto her Executive.

Last Friday we held our third Assist Conference at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London. I can’t quite believe I’m saying our third conference as we have been on quite the journey since our first conference. Back in 2015 we had just over 50 assistants attend and this year we sold out (for […]
