Executive Secretary LIVE Goes GLOBAL

17 & 18 March 2021

In June 2020 we took our world-renowned ExecSecLIVE event virtual for the first time.

A whole new global audience gained access to 2 days of workshops, elite speakers, training and networking unlike any other.

And we’re back for 2021!

We are keen to ensure that you continue to get the training and inspiration that you have come to expect from us.

Our LIVE events offer training to not only improve your work life, but to help you strive for bigger and better things every day.

We pride ourselves on bringing you the best of the best.

Our CEO, Lucy Brazier, speaks all over the world and spends much of her time actively looking for undiscovered superstar talent to educate and inspire you.

We only book speakers and trainers that we have personally seen speak and who give us chills because of their brilliance. We guarantee that you will leave each session with at least one ‘ah ha’ moment.

Updates on speakers and events will be released shortly. Register your place now and enjoy massive savings.

Interested in a group licence to allow a team of 6 or more assistants to watch together? Please email lbrazier@executivesecretary.com

Why attend Executive Secretary LIVE?

  • #ExecSecLIVE Global: I’ve been absorbing my first-time experience attending Executive Secretary LIVE Global and in a word, I’d say my experience was #exceptional! LIVE offered robust content, outstanding speakers and engaging interaction from a talented community of administrative professionals from across the globe! We were truly multi-tasking between listening to the presenters, taking notes, interacting with each other in the chat box and making new LinkedIn connections. LOL

    The virtual experience offered a greater reach and shift in interaction among colleagues that will be talked about for some time. 🙂

    Thank you Lucy Brazier, Matthew Want and ESL team for putting together an exceptional LIVE virtual event!

Why you should attend

We never stop learning! You are most likely reading this because you are an aspiring support leader passionate about your administrative role, looking to make a meaningful contribution through your professional capacity. LIVE GLOBAL is our solution for making this happen. It is the highly anticipated annual gathering for professional assistants, presented virtually. We bring like-minded peers together for two days of intense learning and networking, announcing emerging best practices and methodologies relevant to your role. Irrespective of where you are career-wise, LIVE is the annual conference you cannot afford to miss.

Why you should attend

What you will receive

LIVE will present you with the most pertinent opportunities currently available in the market, delivered by the world’s best trainers and thought-leaders over an intensive two days. LIVE will help you to evaluate what changes you can make and how you can make a difference within your role and your organisation. You will leave LIVE with a revived purpose; equipped with the mindset, methodology and tools to gain the responsibility, progression and recognition you desire. You’ll enjoy energised networking and camaraderie as part of the overall experience too.

What you will receive

Our pledge to you

We want to help you to become the best version of yourself that you can be; that is our number one objective for doing what we do, and how LIVE began 8 years ago. We have helped thousands of Assistants grow and excel in their careers, and have been backed by Executives, CEOs and VPs from an array of companies, industries and sectors who now understand and respect the value and input a modern-day Assistant provides. Ultimately we will ensure that you learn, thrive and excel in your career.

Our pledge to you

Become part of the change

LIVE doesn’t bring you the run of the mill or the obvious. We continuously look for new ways to teach, enhance and future-proof your role. We have a growing global community of assistant professionals ranging from graduates to experienced thought-leaders, most of whom have attended LIVE at least once and continue to do so. In fact, 84% of our attendees, across the world, tell us that LIVE is one of the best conferences that they have ever attended. They continue to attend each year because of the impact it has instilled and the difference it has made.
