Course description

The Strategic Executive Assistant Training Course

The Strategic Executive Assistant programme will change the way you view and operate in your EA job. This groundbreaking course, delivered and authored by Adam Fidler, one of Europe's most popular EA Trainers and Consultants, breaks down the Executive Assistant role to deliver a fresh perspective and helpful insights on the role of the Senior EA.  It's really a management course for EAs! 

In just two days, the course provides practical techniques that will increase your commercial and strategic awareness, understanding of leadership and management, and how you can best support your executives. With the knowledge and tools gained in this programme will effectively prepare and empower you to take your career to the next level, becoming a personal leader and business support manager in your own right.  The course culminates with a brand new job description for EAs, that better defines the work that they do, as well as all delegates receiving Adam Fidler's EA Success Factors Competency Model, to support their ongoing self-development.  

This course also relates to Adam Fidler's 'EA Manifesto' - which has, to date, received over 110,000 views on social media alone!  The EA Manifesto is a new definition of the role of the Executive Assistant, and the learning on this programme relates precisely behind Adam's thinking, perspectives and analogies of Executive Support.
