2nd Annual Scandinavian Executive Assistant Summit

Executive Assistants (EA) today are a new kind of employee, passionate, strong and committed. This means perfecting the art of scheduling, timing, prioritising and productivity all in one. EAs are well informed and organised to maintain flexibility while having a unique overview of the company, which commonly involves making critical decisions. The EA is trustworthy and bound to confidentiality for the safeguarding of highly sensitive information.

While performing many different individual tasks the EA must also be able to work alongside a team to meet their objectives; making the EA a paramount cross-functional asset to the company, requiring the highest standard in multi-tasking and efficiency.

THE 2ND ANNUAL SCANDINAVIAN EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT SUMMIT is a brilliant networking opportunity for EAs. We have gathered together world-renowned professionals to mentor and guide you through your day-to-day routines, and give you hands-on tips to make your work faster and more efficient. With the help of our speakers you will learn how to use your body language to achieve positive results in any sort of communication, how to become a leader, and how to mentor others. You will learn how important it is to build your own professional network. Our trainers will provide you with these valuable strategies and techniques to enhance the effectiveness of your executive support functions. We will take your skills to the next level!

After four successful Global Executive Assistant Summits that took place in Cannes, October 2014; Paris, May 2015; Lisbon, June 2016; Rome, June 2017, and two regional events in Stockholm and Berlin - December 2016, we are back in the North!

Copenhagen - originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, nowadays is the capital and most populous city of Denmark. It is an elegant mix of advanced modern architecture, waterways, open spaces, cobblestone narrow streets, old timbered houses, ancient castles and palaces. Copenhagen is home to the world’s oldest monarchy and an extremely popular royal family.

Have a look at the father of fairy tales Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Mermaid sitting on her rock at the entrance to the harbour, pay a visit to Christiansborg Palace, where the queen welcomes official guests and hosts royal banquets. Experience Denmark's 1,000-year history: from the Viking Age 800 - 1066 and the time of Bishop Absalon (1167), to the 20th century Depression and World War II history - in the city's museums.

Join us for the two-day adventure, full of highly-relevant topics, hands-on tips and training from world-renowned professionals. We are always happy to meet new attendees and greet old friends!
