The modern Executive Assistant is the 'secret weapon' of today's successful CEO or high level executive. Knowledgeable, assured and dedicated, the EA is across all facets of an organisation and knows just what it takes to get things done.
The role has expanded in recent years, with greater demands and higher expectations needing to be met, which comes with plenty of challenges. It is priceless to have somewhere to turn for support, a forum where you can lean on the collective wisdom and knowledge of your accomplished peers.
The EA Circle is a unique forum for EAs to connect, share and grow as individuals and professionals. A place where you can find advice, guidance and encouragement in a friendly and mutually supported environment.
From a wide range of industries across the private and public sector, our members all have one thing in common: they know the ups and downs of EA life.
Peer support and guidance. No one knows the pressures and rewards of being an EA better than another EA. The EA Circle provides the peer support and guidance you simply can't get from anywhere else.
A less lonely existence. EAs will undoubtedly feel a degree of isolation at some time during their career. Reliable, sympathetic listeners are hard to find. The EA Circle allows you to discuss openly the issues you confront on a daily basis with others who are in similar environments.
Collective wisdom and knowledge. With diverse backgrounds and experiences, our members share their knowledge and wisdom with one another, enriching each other professionally and personally.
Confidential and trusted forum. The EA Circle is a forum where you can share your thoughts, insights and experiences in trust and confidence.

“The EA role is challenging: no power title, no uniform list of duties and no formal role on the leadership team. Yet we all know powerful EAs bring their own character, observation and experience to shape their role to develop deep relationships of trust and real influence The EA Circle exists to help you become THAT EA.”
