On 22 September, we held our EA Series event where we heard from an impressive panel of executive assistants who shared their personal experiences and insights to help other EAs thrive in their careers. Our panel was joined by Bev Sims PSM, former Executive Assistant to Secretary Professor Glyn Davis AC, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet; Jack Dolan, Executive Assistant to Secretary Blair Comley PSM, Department of Health and Aged Care; Linda Semmler, Executive Assistant to Secretary Michael Pezzullo AO, Department of Home Affairs; and Rhana Crago PSM, Executive Assistant to Commissioner Gordon de Brouwer PSM FIPAA, Australian Public Service Commission. Edwin Anderson, Adviser at the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, hosted the event and facilitated the discussion.
