The course was first class, well prepared sessions, thought provoking and one to think outside the box. I enjoyed the workbooks, essential to retain for future reference and reflecting on the messages and key points in the template. I found the assignments on each subject a good challenge and thought provoking. The course is highly recommended and Lucy is a great ambassador for the profession. Thank you Lucy for your great support and dedication towards the EA/PA community.

I thoroughly recommend C&C Academy’s Exec PA 360 course, both for existing EAs and those PAs who are ready for their next professional step. The online course exceeded my expectations, with its holistic blend of: - Professional development; informative and thought-provoking content, reflecting the EAs’ 21st century role in business - Personal awareness: challenging, encouraging and ultimately empowering students to recognise and overcome self-limiting beliefs. To become the leaders their companies need them to be - Exploration of complementary tools: including visualisation, meditation and mind mapping - The 360 Tribe: while each student progresses at their own pace, the group’s online community offers invaluable support, discussion and camaraderie. All of the above are brought together by Lucy Chamberlain’s engaging presentation of each online module, combining research and best-practice with her professional (and personal) insight. Lucy’s genuine enthusiasm for the recognition and advancement of the administrative profession shines through. The course is also CPD accredited too, reflecting Exec PA 360 students’ commitment to their professional progression.

Initially I wasn't sure what to expect from this course. A lot of courses promise a lot but often don't deliver. This is NOT one of those courses. Every chapter offers insight and different perspectives on things I thought I already knew. Lucy brings depth and revelations packaged up in an easy to follow, friendly and supportive manner which leaves you eager to learn more. Each chapter comes with additional resources and workbooks to allow you to further develop your new found skills and allows you to put these skills into practise, alongside multiple choice quizzes and an assignment to end each chapter and progress onto the next. This course has been developed from the viewpoint of the consumer and encourages self - reflection on each topic to help you develop your full potential. I’ve come away feeling more confident in my abilities and better equipped to tackle the day to day workplace uncertainties. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course to all assistants who wish to commit to making progress in their careers.

Lucy (and Ed), I cannot thank you both enough for navigating me and everyone else who has made the smartest decision to complete this course, through it. When I first started, I did hit a wall at the first assignment as I'm not used to digging deep and really looking inwards. I'm a process/system type assistant and was expecting a quiz or test! Once past that first module however, I felt enlightened, motivated and like I could take on the world in my role! I flew through the rest of it within 4 days (around working full time and being a mum to a toddler)! The course is set out perfectly in order to be able to study at home and simultaneously whilst working. The clips in each module are short enough to keep you engaged but also long enough to really add value and content to the module. The tasks within each module are also great and must be completed to really benefit from the value of this course. Lucy and Ed are also on hand throughout your study time, so if you do have any issues/concerns/questions, they are right there at the end of an email or one of the many support forums they have set up for the participants. I felt supported the whole way through this course. Lucy your dedication to assistants and nurturing our growth really does shine through. You continue to be such an inspiration to me and I cannot thank you enough for encouraging me to reach my full potential and helping me to believe I am capable and worth a lot more than what I've been putting up with! The sincerest thank you to you!

At the start, I was slightly sceptical. I always thought that I’m pretty accomplished at what I do. Listening to Lucy talk really got under my skin and made me analyse what I could change and improve. On reflection, there are so many things that I could do differently and better. This course has really made me look into my soul and be honest with myself about who I am and how I will approach my career going forwards. I have learnt new skills and have challenged aspects of my own behaviour that I hope will be life changing. I thought I was good. With Lucy’s tuition, I intend on being incredible!

I have been truly taken back by the course. I needed something to give me that push that I needed and it was completely the right move. The course is broken down into manageable chunks and you are able to go and whatever speed you want to. I am a mum of 3 and also working full time and it fit around my schedule and with no pressure. Lucy’s And Ed’s support has been great, they are literally at the end of the phone or email! I would 1000% recommend any one to do this course!!

Firstly it was so nice to see a bespoke course made for EA/PA's, we seem to fall through the cracks when it comes to training in our line of work. This course if particularly good for new starters or for those who do not have much experience being a PA/EA. The course is broken down into manageable sections, full of insightful knowledge and expert information to help you progress with your career and grow as an individual. Thank you

Lucy, you have an amazing way of communicating that instantly gives the listener a warm ''I've got you" assurance throughout this course. I would love to see this training course taken on board by the big Corporates eg; KPMG, McKinsey, HSBC where they have numerous EA/PAs, to show them they are valued and in turn their working lives will truly be enhanced. Great work - keep it up.
