4th Annual Executive Assistant Congress Melbourne

The Intercontinental, Melbourne The Rialto

Be inspired, empowered and enabled to thrive in your career

20-21 March 2024, Melbourne

The 4th Annual Executive Assistant Congress has been developed at a crucial time for EAs, where professional development and learning can make you shine more than ever before.

Uncertain times require decisive leadership, and the evolving role of modern EAs is not only to support leadership, but often to provide it.

This programme has been tailored to provide personal and collaborative skills to EAs, which will transform the way you and your executive work. These practical tips will be the difference between blending in and being bold; now, and through wherever your career takes you.

Australia’s premiere EAs, senior executives, and seasoned experts will help you become your best self, with sessions including:

  • Mastering the art of time management and achieve your goals
  • Connecting with your executive and team by ‘speaking their language’
  • Developing your skills strategically with advice from senior executives
  • Making enough time to work, to rest, to laugh, and to love, in harmony
  • Work smart with Microsoft Teams, and make technology work for you
  • Become your executive’s greatest asset with confidence and communication
  • Dreaming big about the future career that you deserve, and the road to lead you there
