Why You Should Attend

The Modern Day Assistant as a Strategic Business Partner

The most successful businesses understand how to use their Assistants as strategic business partners.  The days of Assistants just typing and answering phones are over. The American Society of Administrative Professionals has demonstrated that Assistants are the new middle management. Now, they are more likely to be knee deep in project management, strategic research, reports & financial forecasts. Increasingly, Executives free up their time by using Assistants to fill the gaps where their weaknesses lie. This course will train Assistants in the new skill sets necessary to ensure businesses are getting the best from their support and adding value to the company’s bottom line.
