    LUCY BRAZIER: The Modern Day Assistant as a Strategic Business Partner

    The role of the Executive Support has changed forever! Are you ready to embrace that change and fulfil your potential?

    Since the recession began eight years ago, the role of the Assistant has changed beyond recognition. There has never been a more confusing time to be an Assistant because the responsibilities have developed so fast.

    Two years ago, the American Society of Administrative Professionals proved beyond doubt that Assistants are the new middle management. In order to take advantage of the new breed of Assistant, both companies and the Assistants themselves need to understand that the role has been reinvented. 

    In this Masterclass, Lucy Brazier looks at the role past, present and future to explain why it has developed how it has. She explores the opportunities that this creates for you to become a true Business Partner to your Executive including developing the partnership, establishing the ground rules, communication, adapting to style & maintaining a great partnership.

      Join us for a fantastic event with two amazing keynotes, wonderful workshops, AAPNZ democracy at work with the AGM and of course the fabulous Gala Dinner where the 2019 Administrative Professional of the Year will be announced!

      Keynote 1

      Sarah Cross - Richard Joseph & Associates

      "Building resilience while diminishing the need for it"

      Sarah specialises in leadership, team development, workload management and professional coaching. As a facilitator and coach, she has had success working with organisations in heavy industries, retail, local government, technology and health.

       Sarah has in-depth experience working with organisations on managing through change, creating a high-performance culture, having conversations that matter, building resilient employees, challenging the status quo and encouraging innovation.

      Sarah honed her facilitation skills and knowledge of the learning process during her early career teaching and working with disengaged youth. It was an occupation which enabled her to indulge her lifelong interest in people and passion for learning, “I’ve always loved connecting with people and helping them grow – watching them become empowered by new knowledge,” she explains. Leaving teaching as her young family grew, she then worked as an Educational Contractor for the NZ Qualifications Authority (NZQA), Ministry of Social Development and a private training institution on programme development, resources, assessments and customised learning programmes.

      Sarah joined the team at Richard Joseph & Associates in 2014 and since then has co-authored the RJA Leadership programme, been integral in the evolution of Turning Point and developed the life-management course Lighten Your Lifeload. As well as these significant contributions to programme development, Sarah facilitates Turning Point, RJA Leadership and RJA Team Player, does Leadership Coaching, direction-setting workshops, profiles people in the MBTI and EQi 2.0 psychometric tools and provides bespoke consultancy services for clients.

       Sarah’s extensive experience and qualification in pedagogy (the theory and practise of education) enables her to make a valuable contribution to programme development. She is part of the team which reviews and revises the offerings of the company to ensure they remain current, relevant, interesting and effective. Sarah enjoys the creative challenge of this aspect of the job, and believes that, “Blending recent research in psychology with current trends in business and applying them to the most common issues facing organisations today is the key to our success.”

      Keynote 2

      Hilary Barry - Self, Sense and Sensibility

      Hilary Barry is a familiar face for many people in New Zealand having presented the news for many years on television and radio.

      A born and bred Wellingtonian, she started her career in radio in the Wairarapa before joining TV3 as a junior reporter based in Christchurch in 1993. Hilary remained at the network for 23 years as both a reporter and news anchor.

      A couple of years ago Hilary moved across town and to the other side of the remote control, joining TVNZ’s Breakfast and more recently Seven Sharp.

      Though she’s won awards for journalism and presenting, she’s most famous for her giggling fits and, on one occasion, snorting on air. To this day it remains her most embarrassing moment.

      Hilary will cover what it's like to be a working mum, how to work doing something you love and how to say no."
