Be the Competitive Edge

With Joan Burge and James Bristow


Founder and CEO Joan Burge has teamed up with Executive and Co-Author of The Executive’s Competitive Edge: Why You Need to Leverage the Talents & Time of an Executive Assistant James Bristow to host another incredible webinar presented by Office Dynamics. The Be the Competitive Edge webinar will help assistants understand how they can have a greater impact and truly become the key differentiator on their executive’s team.

Administrative assistants play many critical roles, wear multiple hats, and perform numerous nuanced, detailed, yet incredibly vital tasks that serve to keep the proverbial ship afloat. Without them, organizations struggle, and executives fail to reach their full potential. Often though, the real power of this “behind the scenes” role can be disregarded and neglected by both assistants and their leaders. Those days are over.

 In this one-of-a-kind webinar, Joan and James will show assistants:

Why you need to be the competitive edge

How to be viewed in partnership with management

Ways to build and maintain a foundation of trust

How to build lifetime business skills that will pay off throughout your career

The power of maintaining calm during chaotic times

How to fully embrace your role and help both you and your leader shine

The Be the Competitive Edge webinar is a can’t-miss event. Thought leaders Joan Burge and James Bristow will ensure you’re on the path towards gaining the edge and taking your career to the next level. Are you ready?
