We never stop learning! You are most likely reading this because you are an aspiring support leader passionate about your administrative role, looking to make a meaningful contribution through your professional capacity. It is the highly anticipated annual gathering for professional assistants, presented in person. We bring like-minded peers together for two days of intense learning and networking, announcing emerging best practices and methodologies relevant to your role. Irrespective of where you are career-wise, LIVE is the annual conference you cannot afford to miss.
LIVE will present you with the most pertinent opportunities currently available in the market, delivered by the world’s best trainers and thought-leaders over an intensive two days. LIVE will help you to evaluate what changes you can make and how you can make a difference within your role and your organisation. You will leave LIVE with a revived purpose; equipped with the mindset, methodology and tools to gain the responsibility, progression and recognition you desire. You’ll enjoy energised networking and camaraderie as part of the overall experience too.
We want to help you to become the best version of yourself that you can be; that is our number one objective for doing what we do, and how LIVE began 8 years ago. We have helped thousands of Assistants grow and excel in their careers, and have been backed by Executives, CEOs and VPs from an array of companies, industries and sectors who now understand and respect the value and input a modern-day Assistant provides. Ultimately we will ensure that you learn, thrive and excel in your career.
LIVE doesn’t bring you the run of the mill or the obvious. We continuously look for new ways to teach, enhance and future-proof your role. We have a growing global community of assistant professionals ranging from graduates to experienced thought-leaders, most of whom have attended LIVE at least once and continue to do so. In fact, 84% of our attendees, across the world, tell us that LIVE is one of the best conferences that they have ever attended. They continue to attend each year because of the impact it has instilled and the difference it has made.
“I am reassured, rejuvenated, reminded and remotivated that I am in the right profession, a position that requires endless skill sets and constant demand…we do it all and with a smile.

“I feel truly energised to provide an even higher level of service to my executives… I’ve started researching a topic that I would like to write an article on & have spoken to one of my execs about leading a project to unify the EAs across our company… to use Dinah’s phrase “I’ve removed the box.”Colette Martin
