Look no further! sign up! Share with your colleagues!
Empowerment for EAs!
Peggy's course was just what I needed, at the right time. It broadened my perspective on leadership, and I really appreciate that the coaching was very specific and applicable to EAs, unlike other programs. The handout is a gift that will keep on giving, and I really feel empowered. I highly recommend this to anyone who is eager to grow personally and professionally as an EA.
Two Days of Incredible Training
Lucy has tremendous insight into the role of an Assistant and is on an absolute mission to ensure that organisations get the most of their Assistants and, in turn, for us to get the most out of our chosen profession. Her energy, humour, warmth, approachability, knowledge and outstanding, innate ability to listen as well as talk is unsurpassed. She gives you so much food for thought to take away from her courses and I also love the interactive aspect which brings all the group together. I cannot recommend Lucy (and her team) highly enough.
Infectious passion for the profession
We were able to win Diana Brandl for an in-house workshop on the future assistant role and personal branding. Due to her extensive experience as an office professional and her infectious passion for this profession, she was able to inspire and motivate our entire team of experienced executive assistants. We took a lot with us and, as a team, moved even closer together.
EA to the CEO
Immediately actionable
Lizebeth clearly believes in taking time to make those she meets better informed and capable of taking what she teaches them back to their employers and incorporating them immediately. Her desire to teach processes and efficiencies through technology is powerful. Anyone who hires Lizebeth to train will immediately find they have hired the right trainer.
A full playbook of best practices
Ann was a favorite in our series of Starbuck's Women Impact Network EMEA speaker events. Her presentation was full of incredible stories from her work with foundational tech companies and legendary entrepreneurs that entertained as much as they inspired. She presented us with a full playbook of best practices that left our team with a renewed enthusiasm and intrapreneurial spirit that is still thriving today. We look forward to welcoming her back in the future!
Loved it!
It's the 1st time I attended a conference like this. Very motivational, all speakers were excellent. It is information, we can use daily in our work and home environment. Meeting people from 17 Countries all at once in one room, you don't experience that all the time. Excellent work done by all
I would attend again!
Everything was so well organised and the attention to detail was perfect. I loved all the speakers - each woman was unique in her own right, and I really took away a lot of learning from the sessions. A special part for me was the networking with all the delegates and speakers - all amazing women doing amazing work!
Absolutely incredible show
Absolutely incredible show! It was my first time attending something of the sort, and I came away with so much information, new contacts, tools to try... overwhelmed but very happy, and keen to see more!
Best decision I ever made by signing up for this event.
Loved every minute and didn't want it to end. Learnt so much from all the various speakers, who were very inspiring. And the bonus was meeting like-minded assistants from many different industries, not just London, but from all around the world.

About Executive Support Media

At first glance, we appear to be a training company that provides world-class training from the top trainers for the Administrative Profession in whatever format you might want or need it.

But that is not the whole story. Your perception of an archetypal publishing or training company is totally different to where we sit.

Our success is not just down to our products, it’s down to our core belief that we are here to serve each and every assistant, to ensure that you meet your full potential.

Our approach is to treat every assistant that we come into contact with as an individual and listen hard to find out how we can meet your needs.

We talk to thousands of you every year to ensure that we understand the market; the latest thinking, the skills you need to futureproof your career, your issues and how your workplace is changing.

We are passionate about changing the perception of the role so that businesses understand how to best utilise you. The Administrative Profession is now just that; a profession. For half a billion people globally, it’s a career – not just a job. We campaign globally for the recognition of you and your role as a professional.

To date we have connected over 100,000 assistants across the world. You become part of our global community, sharing ideas, best practice, solutions and inspiration. There is power in our hashtag #OneProfessionOneVoice.

And we try to do all of the above with integrity and authenticity – traits which are core to our founder, Lucy Brazier’s beliefs as to how a good business should operate.
