THE MODERN-DAY ASSISTANT AS A STRATEGIC BUSINESS PARTNER with Laura Belgrado
The Modern-Day Assistant Paris hosted by Laura Belgrado in French
The role of the Assistant has changed beyond recognition. The press is full of stories about how the role is disappearing and we know that many of the task-based parts of the job are either being outsourced or taken over by artificial intelligence. Still, it is also rated by Glassdoor as one of the top 10 careers of the future.
So where does that leave you?
There has never been a more confusing time to be an Assistant because the responsibilities have developed so fast. And coming out of Covid, you have never needed to prove your value to the business and what you contribute to the bottom line so categorically.
In this ground-breaking training, Laura Belgrado looks at the role – past, present and future – to explain why it has developed how it has. She explores the opportunities this creates for you to become a true business partner to your executive, including developing the partnership, establishing the ground rules, communicating, adapting to their style and maintaining a great partnership.
Not sure how to ask?
We make it really easy by sending you a business case letter that has helped thousands of Assistants to ask for funding to attend our events and training.
