The 2018 Executive Leadership Support Forum: San Diego will be held at Hilton Garden Inn San Diego Bayside on November 7th and 8th.
The upcoming Executive Leadership Support Forum strives to improve the profile and professional lives of executive assistants by creating an educational outlet that inspires growth, collaboration, and community.
In a Harvard Business Review article, Melba Duncan, CEO at the Duncan Group, states that executive assistants “can drastically improve the productivity of an executive and of the organization as a whole.” Learning how to manage one’s manager is key to anticipating needs and establishing open lines of communication. When executive assistants assert themselves as reliable business partners, leaders have an opportunity to delegate additional responsibilities and drive the business forward at a faster pace.
Given this, there has never been a better time to be an executive assistant (EA) than right now. There has also never been a more complicated time to work as an EA than right now. Today’s executive assistants are called to lead, think, and act strategically and by educating themselves about the business, EAs can become key stakeholders within an organization.

Dr. Dupree is a nationally recognized speaker and trainer. Her career includes several teaching stints over the last 20 years.
