An Offer from Sue France for Shelagh’s Readers

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.

Peer Recommendations from Real Careers Alumni

Readers familiar with Exceptional EA’s Real Careers series turn to it for insights from counterparts around the globe. They benefit from others’ sharing of expertise and experience, and from a diverse range of peer-recommended resources to review and assess for their own personal and professional development.

Exceptional EA has assembled a Resources page containing your peers’ recommendations, and Real Careers alumni from three countries have already reflected on France’s work. On the basis of insights from stellar counterparts such as Bianca Constance, Kerry Dawson, Debbie Grimshaw and Julia Schmidt, France’s works are listed in both the Web Resources and Print Resources sections.

Sue France has noticed

This is where Sue France comes in. She’s been paying attention to Exceptional EA, and to what Constance, Dawson, Grimshaw, Schmidt and other Real Careers alumni from a number of countries are saying. If you’re already following Exceptional EA on Twitter, it would be difficult to not notice some of the fun that dedicated administrators from a variety of countries have been having about the very serious business of performing at a high level.

Late last week, France wrote, “I am extremely impressed with Exceptional EA’s website and the quality of articles and information for today’s assistant and love the fact that websites like this and social media bring the huge international family of assistants together to network and share information easily. I am also delighted that some of the ‘Real Careers’ assistants have recommended both of my books as books that have influenced them and their careers.”
