When thoughtful, high performing assistants offer their perspectives, people pay attention. People such as bestselling author Sue France, a former assistant who serves on the editorial board of Lucy Brazier’s Executive Secretary Magazine.
France herself was also a high performing, award winning assistant, and her leadership roles included service as UK National Chairman of European Management Assistants (EUMA). These days, she is a highly respected coach and trainer who just happens to be a best-selling author.
