Testimonials


Quite simply, the best EA trainer of the modern age!
— Louisa Blankson, PA to Chairs, Big Lottery Fund - January 2018

You have no idea how inspiring your words are... this is a life change that I do not take lightly! I have followed your posts for a while and find them, well - brilliant! Thank you for being a major reason for my EA transition!

Adam provided himself a great course leader, and designer, combining experience, professionalism and personality in two worthwhile days. As a law graduate, I was already very methodical and a highly organised person, but the Get Ahead as an Executive PA course taught me so much about my role and how to develop in it effectively. Lots of the lessons I found easy to put into practice from day one back in the office.
— Oliver Kelly-Dean, Executive Assistant - October 2017

I came away from The Strategic Executive Assistant course both excited and enthused about my role. Using the tools and techniques covered, I was able to define a more strategic EA role going forward and wrote a paper to my Board setting out how I could support them more effectively. I have since been promoted and believe I would not have achieved this had I not attended the course. Adam’s delivery is engaging, clear and concise and draws on real life examples. Adam is an excellent trainer and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

What an immense privilege it was to listen to Adam as a presenter. I have already started implementing tips that he gave us and I have been greatly enriched by his inputs, expertise and knowledge. This was the most useful and informative course I’ve ever done. Adam’s presentation was brilliant, well-researched and a real eye-opener. He is an outstanding speaker who understands his audience and I hope that we will cross paths soon with another course, covering new topics.

Adam delivered the Strategic EA Course in the supportive and engaging style he is well known for. He used real life examples which helped me to clearly plan how I would be able to put the techniques learned into practice within the workplace. I would highly recommend this course!

Following my attendance on The Strategic Assistant course, I returned to work and pitched some changes I wanted to make in my role, incorporating me taking a more strategic approach to my position which would support my bosses more effectively, as well as allowing me the development and growth in my role as their assistant. At year end, in my performance review, I was given the long awaited title of ‘Executive Assistant’ and an elevation in my salary to reflect such changes. Had I not attended this course, I would still have been in the same position, not learning about the changes that are happening in the assistant industry and not progressing myself as an EA. This course has benefitted me, my two executives and our company overall. It’s thank you to Adam and his course that all this has happened!
— Frankie Knight, EA to CEO, Brandwatch – January 2017

Your course is highly informative; the content comes from strong work history and is extremely useful for any EA working to progress into a more strategic/managerial role. I would highly recommend it!
— Samantha Bond, Senior EA, London – September 2016

A very big thank you for the two outstanding days of the course. Not only outstanding because of the title but also for the inspiration, learning new skills and tools in a forever changing business environment. Your knowledge from the perspective as a PA/EA and trainer is so valuable for the course and to see things from a different angle as well.
— Angelika Small, Senior Executive Secretary, KPMG – June 2016

Adam was exceptional! He delivered such a mind blowing, jaw dropping, empowering course. I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know.
