Oprah Winfrey’s former EA confirmed for office* 2016

Samantha Cox, Richard Branson's former EA has been confirmed as a Keynote speaker at the office* show

With visitor registration now open, office* – the award-winning business event for executive office support professionals, taking place at the new venue of ExCeL London on 11-12 May, has announced Libby Moore, former EA/chief of staff to Oprah Winfrey, as its first keynote speaker for 2016.

Renowned for attracting a host of ‘inspirational’ big names from around the world, former headline keynote speakers include Karren Brady, Deborah Meaden, Zelda La Grange, former PA to Nelson Mandela, Judith Croasdell, former PA to Professor Stephen Hawking, Freda Kelly, former secretary to The Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein, Margaret Mountford, Michelle Mone and Jacqueline Gold.

This year, it’s Ms Moore’s turn to draw in the crowds. An executive coach, inspirational speaker and self-confessed ‘adventurer’, Ms Moore will share her personal and professional journey – which includes 11 years working with Oprah Winfrey – to illustrate how “letting go and getting into the flow” has led her to extraordinary life experiences.

From starting out in New York City as a personal assistant to US talk show host Maury Povich, trying her hand at sketch comedy, working as an executive assistant to Jann Wenner, (founder and publisher of Rolling Stone magazine) to today, a certified life and career coach – her fascinating career has all the ingredients for a motivating must-see-session.

“I am so excited to be sharing my story at office* this year. I believe that EAs/PAs are the new rock stars of the corporate world and when there is a terrific match with their executive, what can be achieved is limitless,” says Libby Moore.

The full office* Keynote programme will be unveiled over the next few months. The show, which annually attracts more than 4,000 attendees, will also feature eight free office management and virtual assistant-specific training sessions, eight free hot topic group discussions, 36 CPD-accredited seminars and 150 sector-leading exhibitors.
