I am a confident and able speaker, and would be the perfect addition to your conference or event.
With a secretarial career spanning more than a decade and experience with companies from start-ups to global blue-chips, there isn’t much I wouldn’t be able to speak about.

Whether you are looking for someone to speak on a specific topic at your event, or generally about a career in Administration, contact me and we can discuss what I can offer.


Whether you are organising a large international event and need a Keynote Speaker, or if you run your company’s PA network and would like someone to talk to your colleagues in an informal setting, we can definitely work together.

I can also offer a training package, bespoke to your requirements. Please contact me for more information

Transferable Skills of a PA

Yvette spent nearly 15 years working in Executive Assistant and Office Management roles, before moving on to Operational and Sales roles in. Learn first hand which skills she learned as a PA that meant she was given these opportunities, and which skills allowed her to pick up the roles so quickly and effectively.

Project Management for an EA

Many EAs move into Project Management roles but don't realise they already have a lot of the skills needed. The skills gaps are easy to fill, and Yvette takes EAs through exactly which areas might need a little development. 

Corporate Strategy for an EA

Owning the Corporate Strategy is for all of the leadership team - including the EAs. EAs are perfectly positioned to design and implement a company-wide strategy and to ensure everyone is aligned to it.
