GLOBAL SPEAKER, AUTHOR, WRITER, AND BLOGGER
I have a 15-year career history spanning global blue-chip firms, start-ups, scale-ups and mid-sized companies.
I speak across the world on various topics. I have chaired conferences, been part of online conferences, and been the keynote speaker at exhibitions.
I am the author of Confessions of a PA - a group of stories from my time as a PA.
Every Friday my newsletter, The Admin Wrap, updates the UK admin community with the top stories, news and events.
Body Language in the Office
In an office environment, it’s incredibly valuable to understand some key body language signs when dealing with managers, subordinates, peers, colleagues or external clients. After this session you will be able to position people around a room in a way that makes the shy more comfortable and the confident a little quieter. You will notice the signs of people who are bored or who just really want to leave the room, and be able to direct the meeting accordingly.
Start-ups and Downs
Working at a start-up involves many different skills and techniques to not only get the office physically up and running, but behaving to the outside world that you are already established.
Having worked at two different start-ups, Yvette talks about the ups and downs of setting up and office. She gives advice on the things she learned on her journeys, and tips on how to be most effective when the company is growing at lightning speed.
Transferable Skills of a PA
Yvette spent nearly 15 years working in Executive Assistant and Office Management roles, before moving on to be her company’s Head of Business Intelligence. Learn first hand which skills she learned as a PA that meant she was given this opportunity, and which skills allowed her to pick up the role so quickly and effectively.
