As CEO of Marcham Publishing, specialist publishers of Executive Support Magazine – a global training magazine dedicated to the professional development needs of senior and aspiring administrative professionals – Lucy Brazier OBE works with the best trainers of Executive Assistants from around the world to deliver the most up to date and current training in the market.
Her passion is for the Assistant role to be truly recognised as a career and not just a job. Her formidable training expertise and speaking style have given her opportunities to train, present and emcee events in over 50 countries at over 450 events including Chairing the 2015 World Administrator Summit in Papua New Guinea and co-facilitating the same event in Frankfurt in 2018 and online in 2020.
This has created much-needed discussions ranging from encouraging Executive Assistants to work towards becoming centres of excellence within their companies, to explaining why college students should see the Assistant role as a proper profession with a career path. The work being conducted worldwide on career paths, job titles & education for Assistants is one of her key drivers and she is working with some of the most recognisable companies on the planet to consult on restructuring and training their Business Support functions.
Lucy has a unique overview of the role and where it is heading. With access to the most forward-thinking, passionate and knowledgeable trainers and administrative business leaders in the world as well as personally meeting and speaking to literally thousands of Assistants for more than a decade, Lucy’s knowledge of the market and what Assistants all over the world are facing on a day-to-day basis are second to none.
Lucy’s awards include an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) awarded in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021 for services to office professionals. She has also received an Honorary Fellowship to the Institute of Administrative Management (2018), the YPA Special Award ‘International Ambassador for the PA Profession’ (2016) & ‘PA Contributor of the Year Award’ by Office* Show (2015)
The magazine has been a finalist in the PPA Business Magazine of the Year Award, the PPA Media Brand of the Year Award and the PA-Assist Members Awards.
Lucy has worked in publishing for over 30 years. She has previously worked as a Publishing Director for Wilmington PLC as well as for EMAP, The Times, The Independent, Centaur Communications and Glass’s Guide.
In South Africa more than half of the youth have no money to pay for their tuition.
This is why Anel Martin, Teri Wells and Lucy Brazier decided to start Isipho Admin in 2015, to help these young adults to gain the education that was being denied them, simply because of lack of funds.
Isipho means The Gift and every year the foundation selects, funds and prepares the best and brightest candidates for a career as an administrative professional. We set them up for future success, and provide opportunities where none existed.
Isipho Admin Bursary, a registered NPC 2015/438143/08 registered officially in South Africa on the 08/12/2015. We are not government funded but are supported by administrative professionals and training companies from around the world financially. We are a team that are committed to leaving a legacy!
