2nd June 2020 @ 15:30

As CEO of Marcham Publishing, specialist publishers of Executive Secretary Magazine – a global training magazine dedicated to the professional development needs of senior and aspiring administrative professionals - Lucy works with the best trainers of Executive Assistants from around the world to deliver the most up to date and current training in the market.

Her passion is for the Assistant role to be truly recognised as a career and not just a job. Her formidable training expertise and speaking style have given her opportunities to train, present and Chair in over 45 countries at hundreds of events. This has created much-needed discussions across the globe on how to professionalise the role. Lucy has also acted as a consultant on career progression, the future of the role and how Executives/ Assistants can best partner with each other, with some of the biggest companies in the world.


Lucy has a unique overview of the role and where it is heading. With access to the most forward-thinking, passionate and knowledgeable trainers in the world as well as personally meeting and speaking to literally thousands of Assistants over the last seven years, Lucy’s knowledge of the market and what Assistants all over the world are facing on a day to day basis are second to none.


In March of 2018 Lucy received the IAM Honorary Fellowship for her outstanding work and contribution to the PA profession. In 2016 Lucy was awarded the YPA Special Award 'International Ambassador for the PA Profession' and in 2015 the ‘PA Contributor of the Year Award’ by Office*. The magazine has been a finalist in the PPA Business Magazine of the Year Award, the PPA Media Brand of the Year Award and the PA-Assist Members Awards.

Lucy launched #adminchat in January 2012. Hosted by a different world-class trainer every week, #adminchat is a manifestation of Lucy’s commitment to providing the very best training to assistants all over the world and has recently changed from a TweetChat into a free weekly webinar delivered via the Executive Secretary YouTube channel.

Lucy has been a Publisher and Events Organiser for over 30 years. Lucy has previously worked as a Publishing Director for Wilmington PLC, and has managed a team based in Singapore, New York, Germany & London responsible for 13 magazines, 12 international conferences, awards, trade show attendance and marketing for EMAP. Other companies worked for include The Times, The Independent, Centaur Communications and Glass's Guide.

We think 30 minutes will not be enough but we will make the most of the time!

Your Business Virtual Expo Online

11th June 2020 @ 10:45

It’s time to bring the joy back into our business lives!

11th June was the date for the next Northamptonshire Business Expo, so to mark the date and spark the joy we’re running a virtual expo, bringing you the best of the best wit and wisdom from around the country straight to your screen, powered by Zoom!

Our charity partner for the day is Follyfoot Healing With Horses, specifically to raise funds to support free therapy sessions for NHS Workers,Key Workers and the victims of Domestic Violence.

Speakers/Activities confirmed to date are:-

Robyn Allen Associates - Zoom Open Networking

Kristina Rhianoff - Office Yoga Class

Caroline Strawson - EDMR Flash Workshop

Buckso Dhillon-Woolley - Finding Your Voice in Business online

Nick Horton - Profit Box Sales Training

Sandie Vara - The Spice Guy, speed-slicing his way into the record books…blindfold!

Dress Code: NOT compulsory! Think of all the zoom-call photos you’ve seen of the folk screen-snapping away, well, inspired by all that and wanting to actively encourage it, the dress code request is that we all wear black, white or black & white. Speakers are requested to wear a pop of colour, maybe an on-brand colour representing their business, who knows! I do know that it will be an online eye-catcher for sure!

As I write, there are other leading lights frantically trying to re-align their diaries to enable them to join us. If they can’t…we’ll just have to do another one soon!

So much more information is on the way this week, but for now…SAVE THE DATE!

Thanks!

Play disco bingo and boogie your way through Friday night with Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet - as recommended by everyone from Time Out and The Evening Standard to BBC Radio 4 - and Social Isolation.

Instead of calling out numbers, DJ and host Steph Garey from Social Isolation plays all your favourite 70s & 80s disco tracks and you cross them off your bingo cards and dance along. Plus we’ve got Haven’t Stopped Dancing Yet dancing queen, Lady Boo, showing you the moves to everything from Car Wash to Mamma Mia. It’s going to be a night in to remember.

If that wasn't enough, we will also be donating 10% of every ticket to CRUK and Refuge. So get your tickets while you can!

Disco Bingo is a game of party bingo, playing for line and full house, but instead of numbers being called out you'll hear the best songs from the 70s-20s that we all sing and dance along to. We play every Saturday at 7.15pm - 9.15pm and 9.30pm - 11.30pm. We also play Friday at 8pm.

We have live dancers to help show you the moves if needed. Plus 10% of your ticket purchase will be going straight to a different charity each week, so get involved!

All you need to play is 1 device connected to the internet. Good speakers are a bonus, and dressing up is highly encouraged - this is a party after all!

You will be emailed your bingo card and instructions on how to join the Zoom call at least 1 hour before the event.

There is an allocation of discounted tickets for unemployed people and key workers. Email enjoysocialisolation@gmail.com to enquire.
