4th Annual Global Executive Assistant Summit

Executive assistants 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.

As our Chairman, Lucy Brazier, once said – this isn’t a job anymore, it is a profession, it is a career!

THE 4th ANNUAL GLOBAL EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT SUMMIT is a brilliant networking opportunity for Executive Assistants from all over Europe. We have gathered together world-renowned professionals to mentor you with insights into their day-to-day routines, as well as giving you hands-on tips on making your work faster and more efficient. With the help of our speakers you will learn how to understand and behave with different types of personalities, how to overcome stress and become resilient.

Our trainers will provide you with valuable strategies and techniques to enhance the effectiveness of your executive support functions.

After three successful Global Executive Assistant Summits that took place in Cannes, October 2014; Paris, May 2015; Lisbon, June 2016, and regional events in Stockholm, December 2016 and in Berlin, December 2016, we have decided to host the 4th Annual Global event in Rome – the timeless city, capital of Italy and cradle of knowledge and culture.
