I would thoroughly recommend C&C Academy's Elite EA 360 as a "game changing" opportunity, for board level EAs and Executive Business Partners. If you're ready to enhance your personal awareness and enrich your professional knowhow, this course is for you. The syllabus provides executive level insights and training; reflecting elite assistants’ evolving responsibilities and influence, both on their teams, peers and executives. Each module inspires, challenges and ultimately enriches the student's understanding. Expanding know-how and laying the foundation for ongoing career resilience. As our profession evolves, I found the course to be timely, empowering and hugely enjoyable!

It has been a while since I have taken the time to invest in professional development in my area of expertise. I have continued to own my development but this was all about my role as an administrative professional. I am so pleased I invested in this course. This was not a tick box exercise, but one where you really had to look at yourself and reflect. If you want to continue growing, facing your fears, understanding your motivations, knowing your why and your purpose - this is the course for you. Thank you Lucy - this lady has her groove back!

Elite EA 360 (CERTIFIED COURSE)

The C&C Academy is here to elevate, empower and upskill assistants globally through our transformational courses. My name is Lucy Chamberlain and over the last 22 years I have coached, trained and interviewed well over 15,000 assistants. I have a deep understanding of what Assistants need in order to deliver their best. We have been listening and we have heard you. We know that C level Assistants are missing the training that is so critically needed in order that they can step up and deliver what is required of them. Our Elite course delivers Assistants the skills and tools needed for leadership of teams, conflict management, advanced communication skills and so much more. Graduates from this course leave with a new level of confidence, the strategies and tools needed to deliver as well as an enhanced sense of self and self-esteem. This course is for you if you want to take a seat at the table and be the strategic business partner your organisation needs.
