Hello everybody and welcome to The Assistant Room Live! This is our 2nd event of 2020, now taking place online as a result of pivoting our ability to get together in the wake of COVID-19. As with all of our events, we would normally be in a beautiful venue somewhere in the city of London with a glass of champagne in our hand, meeting and greeting new people and hugging old friends but regardless, whether it is online or in-person, there is nowhere I would personally rather be than with you all learning how to really focus on self-love and confidence, something that I 100% need right now, I’m sure you feel the same too!
Todays event is a full day affair with a combination of wellness, panel discussions, cocktail making and masterclasses, all contributed to by an insanely talented group of ladies. It has always been extremely important for us to offer what I felt was missing within our industry when I was an EA, which is the ability to have access to non-corporate learning with a personable and exciting vibe to it.
At The Assistant Room, we focus on the fact that we all need some variety in our lives so that we can develop consistently in a well rounded way. We recently launched a membership and in our most recent members only newsletter I spoke about the impact that COVID-19 has had on our mental health and that even though we may all be ‘doing ok’ have we actually ‘BEEN ok’? How are we able to look ahead into an unknown future and embrace the ‘new normal’ when none of this is normal at all. Our full day event could not have come at a better time so I invite you all to fully embrace every session we have planned and focus on just you for the day. Yes we all have day jobs but ultimately, with everything going on in the world, it’s time to reflect and understand what’s important and that’s ourselves and those around us who we love and care about.
