Executive Assistant Series

Executive Assistants are at the core of the public service. Critical to this role is an engaged and capable cohort, who are strengthened through diversity and experience. This is achieved through learning, providing support and the exchange of ideas through innovative and adaptive networking. 

The Executive Assistant (EA) Series is designed to provide a variety of opportunities for EAs, including: 

- providing support to individuals;
- recognising individuals skill sets and learning and development needs;
- developing individuals new skill sets; and 
- sharing of information through networking opportunities. 

The EA Series is a great opportunity for EAs across the public and private sector to come together and share experiences and ideas, and build on capability and networks. EA Series events are held during business hours as an information session or panel discussion.
