Powerful training for executive assistants that enables them to be the 'little hinges swinging big doors'

Developing Assistants to be effective not just efficient.

Training With Impact

Training for executive assistants that builds confidence and capabilities - with real results!

Do you want to be more confident, more productive and have the skills you need to offer exceptional support to your boss? Do you work with a team of executive assistants that also want to power up their potential and be seen as more than just assistants?

My EA Career training for executive assistants will empower you. You'll gain the confidence to build a supportive and influential relationship with your boss. And you'll learn the interpersonal skills you need to become a high-performing linchpin that your boss can't do without.

I base my training on The Knowledge Assistant Framework and EA Competency Model. It's my tried and tested model that empowers executive assistants with the strategic competencies and skills they need to become a high-performing linchpin that their executive can't do without.

Training for executive assistants is suitable for organisations that:

I approached Liz to present to a small group of (10) EA's within our company and she not only held the floor, but had a fabulous impression on the team also. She provided various take away thoughts, colloquial comments and recommended action plans for us to be our best selves, not only in our professional but personal lives also. Thanks again Liz!

I would highly recommend this course. It was valuable to me in terms of thinking about not only my own skills and capabilities but how I actually demonstrate this and show up in the workplace.
