Our approach to learning



Here at Adam Fidler Academy we’re committed to providing the best learning experience for our delegates and students.  Our approach to learning is based on: 

  • Small group sizes of no more than 6-8 delegates, to improve the focus and interaction within the session, and giving the tutor the opportunity to get to know every delegate or student.

  • High-quality, inspirational and engaging content, with many illustrations from the world of work to reinforce practical application.

  • Personalised learning, with an emphasis on sharing good practice;

  • Informal and 'coaching' style of delivery, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions, interact and reflect on what’s being said.

In addition, we only employ qualified teachers and trainers who are industry experts to deliver our content. 

For most of our 2-day and Diploma programmes, our students get to know each other very well over the course of their time with us.  To support this, we regularly arrange a group dinner, or ‘tea’ after the programme, or include a sit-down lunch at a local restaurant or coffee house, as part of the learning day.   


Our approach to the role of the Executive Assistant


The Executive Assistant Manifesto


“I’m a neutral, and independent advisor to my Executive, who enables the day-to-day management routines that enhance the effectiveness of my boss, and the organisation as a whole. I operate as a business manager in my own right—and I am an integral part of the management team.

Moreover, I strive to demonstrate leadership qualities and align my behaviours to this goal accordingly.
I am not a business partner as I sit in the core of the business; and I am not an optional extra—my role is mandatory to the success of my Executive. I work in the space of management, allowing my boss to focus on the bigger aspects of leadership.”
