Let’s talk money. No more taboos, secrets, or stigma, just facts and real-life strategies. Very few of you ever get formal negotiation skills training that could be applied to terms of employment. Too many PAs & EAs are underpaid and do not know what their role is actually worth in their market. Bonnie Low-Kramen, Lucy Brazier, and Lucy Chamberlain are three workplace experts who are determined to fix that.
We know that Assistants have a particularly difficult time talking about money and advocating on behalf of themselves. The recent (and ill-informed) Wall Street Journal article ‘The Vanishing Executive Assistant’ (Jan 18) underlined, yet again, the misconceptions about the evolving role of the EA and what it is worth to business. Here is Bonnie’s response to the article that she posted on LinkedIn. You will have seen that many other thought leaders have spoken out as well. This is a conversation that has to happen now and you can be a part of it. It is time to change the perception of this role that is rooted in 2020, not 1960. Spoiler Alert: You are not vanishing.
This event is for anyone who has a stake in this workplace. That means anyone working as a PA or EA, executives, human resources professionals, recruiters, and students. After all, real change in our workplace is going to take all of us. If you are currently looking for new work, feel free to bring several copies of your resume.
PLUS A WORLD PREMIERE: Be one of the first to hear the results of Executive Secretary Magazine’s Global Survey ‘Essential Support: The Real Role of the 21st Century Administrative Professional’. Leave our event with unique negotiation tools and benchmarking stats to take back to your business from the most extensive survey the profession has ever conducted on the future role of the Assistant.
7 November will be a career-changing learning and networking opportunity.
As the CEO of You, Incorporated, it’s time to address the financial wellbeing of your “company” and make the investment in you. Are you ready to make the money that you deserve? Your first step is showing up on 30 March. Game on.
Venue: Harvey Nichols 109-125 Knightsbridge, Belgravia, London SW1X 7RJ
