Delegates at this year’s EXECSec Summit will be able to pick up some vital tips to help them do their jobs more effectively, including maximising their brainpower, becoming a PA brand ambassador and setting boundaries in the workplace.
Author and international trainer Sue France kicks off the proceedings with a presentation on neuroscience that looks at how to apply practical steps in order to develop cognitive ability. Sue will also cover techniques designed to make your brain work efficiently at all times, how to rewire your brain for change and the benefits of mindfulness.
Next up is award-winning PA Victoria Darragh, who is currently executive assistant to the Group CEO and Group Finance Director at recruitment firm Hays and the National Channel Lead for Hays PA & Secretarial, as well as being the co-founder of the Hays PA network. Victoria will be speaking on “The PA Pathway to becoming a Brand Ambassador”; she will discuss why being a brand ambassador can add strategic value to your organisation and the ways in which using your brand can help share knowledge and build a community both internally and externally.
It can be tricky setting clearly defined boundaries at work, but Lindsay Taylor, the Director of training company Your Excellency, will talk EXECSec attendees through the benefits of saying “no” on occasion, the six different ways of saying “no” and how to deliver your message with impact.
Delegates at the two-day event will also have the opportunity to hear how former TV and film production assistant Katie McEwan came to work for Jacqueline Gold, the CEO of lingerie chain Ann Summers and one of the UK’s most successful business women. Katie will share the story of her success and give her take on the future of the PA role.
