What's been happening here over the last three months? News, information, photos, a special offer to attend Executive Secretary LIVE London in 2017 and 2 guest contributors: gorgeous Lindsey Agness of the Change Corporation/Age With Attitude, writing on limiting beliefs, and the fabulous Libby Moore, former Chief of Staff to Oprah Winfrey, shares her experiences. 

Welcome to the September newsletter and thank you so much to everyone who continues to read every issue and all the new subscribers; your support is appreciated enormously. Thank you also to the contributors; I'm always happy to receive articles.

Since the last newsletter I have worked in Manchester, Upminster, Durham, Ormskirk, Sheffield and Guernsey. The topics have included Minutes, PA masterclasses, BakerWrite Speedwriting, a new two day Administrators' Workshop and some half day Chair Brilliant Meetings sessions. I have done another Speedwriting webinar for Business Management Daily, presented at the Meetings Show in London on "The Art of Communication" and facilitated a #adminchat on Twitter for Executive Secretary Magazine : Benefit from Change (you can read the transcript here)

I am very happy and proud to be collaborating with Isipho Admin; the wonderful charity set up in South Africa to train PAs. In August I had the delight of doing a Skype 1:1 coaching session with, Lerato Sikhosana, one of the students. Isipho (Zulu for "The Gift") is always very happy to receive help from organisations anywhere in the world (details at their website - link above). You can even sponsor a student too. Watch this lovely film of how important their work is.

Skype one to one coaching is, of course, available to anyone; contact me for more information.

Coming up over the autumn are courses in London, Swindon, Edinburgh, Barrow-in-Furness, Guernsey, Australia (Sydney, Melbourne & Canberra), Leeds, Ormskirk, Manchester, Canterbury and Dubai. Contact me regarding open courses or if you are interested in an in-house session for your organisation, wherever you are in the world.
