Over 20,000 unique individuals will visit our website this year.
By the end of 2013 we aim to have over 7,500 members nationally.
Our goals and vision
Our goal is to make it easier for EAs and PAs to become more proficient and efficient in their roles and therefore to make it easier for them to provide the levels of service now expected by modern corporate executives.
Our vision is to create a Network for mutual support and assistance, a community where members can interact, network and socialise with each other and, using the services and facilities provided through the Network and this website, somewhere they can find speedier solutions to any problems.
Our dream is for a highly social Network that is ultimately fun and that members want to belong to as much for the community they get to be a part of as for the services we offer.
Executive Assistant Network – unique services, unique knowledge and unique understanding of the challenges faced by EAs and PAs in Australia
Since inception, we have been driven to ensure we understand and fully comprehend all the challenges facing EAs and PAs, their executives, and their companies and can deliver a broad range of services and tools designed to help them overcome these.
We believe we have an unrivalled understanding of how the role of the EA or PA has evolved, of how it is continuing to evolve and of the outlook of modern executives and the organisations they work for and further believe that we actually help foster and shape debate about the very nature of the role and how this will continue to evolve in the future.
How do we aim to help EAs achieve increased efficiencies?
- By providing online resources and tools that enable EAs and PAs to more quickly find the solution to any problem - these include guides, templates, quick links, articles, videos and directories of suppliers and other EAs
- By providing access to an online Chat Room where EAs and PAs can very quickly seek solutions to problems or issues or even ask for suggestions about suppliers from other EAs or PAs who have experience in a specific area
- By hosting networking events where we make it easier for EAs and PAs to build their own large network made up of other senior EAs and PAs who can be called upon at any time for advice and guidance around any issue
- By hosting supplier exhibitions for EAs and PAs across the country so that they can meet, talk with or even 'interview' potential suppliers and build a database of resources and guides about those suppliers to have on hand for the future
How do we aim to help EAs achieve increased proficiencies?
The answer to this question is very simple; - through the production of unrivalled education and training programs and initiatives for EAs and PAs.
