Why are Executive Assistants involved in this area?

Many of the requirements of a company secretary have a natural connection to the role of an Executive Assistant. In organisations where there are not full-time company secretaries, organisations are encouraging Executive Assistants to participate in this important area of company administration. Executive Assistants in numerous industries are finding themselves involved in this interesting area, which carries a lot of responsibility.

Company Secretary Courses for Assistants

We have developed a three-day training course for Executive Assistants and other administrative professionals. The training programme contains three parts:

  • Finance training
  • Corporate Law training

These three areas combine the three skill sets that are needed to gain a strong understanding of the Company Secretarial area. The training aims to build confidence in the area and provide the ability to an EA to be proactive and take greater ownership of these responsibilities.
