EA and PA roles within an organisation are demanding, highly influential and they represent the thoughts and views of the Executive they support. Success as an EA doesn’t come easily. To thrive within the upper echelons of an organisation you must be able to work effectively with all kinds of people and forge strong business relationships.

behind closed doors executive assistants was created in response to a gap in the market for professional development and female support networks, where EAs and PAs can discuss strategies, issues and challenges in a totally confidential environment, while at the same time encourage each other to extend themselves further to achieve and succeed in their environments.

The objectives are to

  • Develop emotional intelligence, strategic thinking and confidence
  • Deliver practical skills sessions
  • Provide a confidential professional women’s EA and PA support network
  • Extend individuals personally and professionally
  • Increase the calibre and expertise of EAs and PAs within organisations
  • Enhance professionalism and strategic awareness

Topics for monthly sessions may include: Managing up to your CEO/MD, Emotional Intelligence, Exercising Influence, Conflict Resolution, Personal Brand and Values, Self Belief/Confidence and an Introduction to Financials.

Throughout the year, members and a wider group of Executive women, managers and business owners come together for a Businesswomen’s Connexions event (networking) to hear presentations from inspirational guest speakers.
