Wellington | 4-5 December 

 
After the success of our Annual EA Leadership Forum earlier this year, we return to Wellington this December with a strong line-up of 20+ inspirational leaders and successful executive assistants, sharing practical tools to help you establish yourself as an influential EA, step into higher-level strategic roles, broaden your skillset and much more.
 
At the 3rd Annual EA Leadership Forum, you will learn practical, proven, and effective skills in: 
  • Evolving from an executive assistant into a strategic partner

  • Building your influence and establishing boundaries within your organisation 
  • Developing your network and expanding your influence outside of your organisation
