Advanced Executive Assistant Programme

2 Day Programme recognised by the ILM (Leadership & Management) City & Guilds

Venue: De Vere Venues, London.

Dates: tba, please contact us at 

A transformation in the role of Executive & Personal Assistants within organisations has taken place over the last 15 years.  Executive Assistants now operate as the right hand of their C Suite level Executive, providing support, representation at meetings, coordinating information flow, recognising and managing business challenges and negotiating and managing communication with the Executive team. Executive Assistants are now required to not only support and protect their Executive but also have business knowledge and management skills to act on their behalf. As key influenceers at senior management level EAs require leadership and management skills, commercial business awareness, financial business understanding, confidence to present and be proficient in event management.

The Global PA Advanced EA Programme has been designed to meet the demand for EAs and PAs who are prepared to take on more managerial and business responsibilities in the workplace and represent their Executive across all levels of the organisation.
