The Executive Leadership Support Forum Series strives to improve the profile and professional lives of executive assistants worldwide by welcoming those with a thirst for knowledge, desire to make new connections, and a passion for career advancement.
Modern day executive assistants are game changers and trusted advisors playing a strategic role across businesses, managing time and access to the top echelon of corporate leadership around the world. Use of new technology for scheduling, time-management and communication has revolutionized businesses, and has also impacted EAs responsible for supporting executives that are constantly on the move, and who are increasingly operating on an international scale. While technological innovation has increased the ability to rapidly communicate and to conduct meetings across time zones, the same technology has created for many, an environment where there is an expectation to be continually accessible.
The Q1 Executive Leadership Support Forum: Phoenix will provide executive assistants representing leading organizations an educational opportunity for learning and knowledge share with peers from throughout the Phoenix area. Workshops led by professional training and development facilitators coupled with robust, interactive exchange group sessions will provide high-level strategies that have struck the delicate balance of professionalism and prioritization. Topics will cover a wide range of challenges faced by EAs with an ultimate goal of increasing the productivity and profile of the executive leadership support role.
This event has been approved for 9.25 IAAP CAP Recertification Points from the International Association of Administrative Professionals.
