Tory Archbold, Founder of Powerful Steps and TORSTAR Communications and Door 20a Founder, Michelle Bowditch co-hosted the “EA’s Lead from within workshop” in Sydney on the 11th of March with a group of incredible Executive Assistants from organisations such as Coles, Stockland and Optus.

The day consisted of defining Powerful Steps, learning how to build your personal brand as well as your tribe with the weekly coffee challenge. Attendee’s networked and enjoyed a day full of practical EA tips including the importance of maintaining you LinkedIn profile, how to build your EA network and identify their very own EA superpowers. Tory shared her professional and personal journey, facilitated a dream delivery meditation and insight into how to believe in the power of your network for the delivery of outcomes. 

Attendee’s walked away with extensive knowledge on how to foster confidence and nurture their tribe to build their personal brand while supporting others. 

“ What a great day we had connecting with like-minded EAs across different industries.  The sessions on ‘what is our brand’ and ‘how to get more from LinkedIn, the power of connection’ were terrific.  Every time I hear about Linked In, I learn something new/beneficial and I love the idea of the ‘power of connection’ rather than ‘networking’.  I’m going to start implementing coffee catch ups (or perhaps a champagne catch up since I’m not a coffee drinker) and making sure that each connection is mutually beneficial for both parties, it’s not just a one way street.  The reminder to take your brand to work every day was great so that we are not one person at home and another at work when it comes to our values.  I am conscious daily of what I put out there to ensure I get back what I am expecting.  Knowing that my intellectual property is something to be valued is also something to be mindful of.” – Margot Paterson, EA to CEO, Boral Limited
