Feeling overwhelmed, finding yourself being drawn into the minutiae when you should be looking at the strategy and future direction of your role/ function/ business?

Then this is the PERFECT time to hire an Executive Assistant.

The value that an Executive Assistant can bring is immeasurable on both a business and personal level. An Executive Assistant is so much more than someone to book a meeting or call a client. The Executive Assistant of today is driven to understand your priorities and pinch points. They are there to act as an extension of you. They are there to increase your productivity, to be a conduit for communication on an internal and external level and build company culture. As a gatekeeper, they talk to everyone and build relationships. They anticipate and solve problems for you. They take work from you and free up your time so you can focus on your priorities. 

A skilled Executive Assistant is proactive, will seek out work, anticipate potential clashes and think independently. Requiring little or no supervision or direction, an Executive Assistant can be a role model to less experienced staff; encouraging them to gain new skills and knowledge. Ambassadorial, commercially aware, astute, and highly organised, the value that an Executive Assistant brings is immeasurable to you and your business.

The role of Executive Assistant has had a real shift change over the last few years. Gone are the days of thinking the ‘secretary’ was there to take dictation and book you a lunch. The executives of today seek out the best Executive Assistants on the market. They understand the vital contribution an Executive Assistant can make. 

With leading CEOs and business leaders now speaking openly about how they couldn’t do what they do without their Executive Assistants at their side, there has never been a better time to hire. Literature, posts, and blogs abound.
