Join us for this interactive event where you can choose from multiple mini-masterclasses each led by an experienced executive assistant from the public sector. 

Small groups will allow attendees to connect with their chosen expert, network with others, ask questions, and seek advice.

Who is this for?

If you’re an EA in the public sector, this event is for you. Depending on your level of experience, you will be able to choose masterclasses that suit you and your interests.

How does it work?

Choose 3 masterclasses for 40-minute rotations out of seven speakers and subjects. The fourth masterclass, ‘Self-care for the busy EA’, will be for all attendees.

You will receive afternoon tea on arrival and will conclude with light refreshments whilst networking with your newfound connections.
