Welcome to Episode 38, Leader Assistants! I’m very excited to share my conversation with the wonderful Lucy Brazier, CEO of Marcham Publishing, Publishers of Executive Secretary Magazine.

Episode 38 Lucy Brazier leader assistant podcast

I had the honor of finally meeting Lucy in person in Atlanta at her Executive Secretary Live event, and she was even more wonderful in person. She’s even invited me to speak at Executive Secretary Live in London, so if you’re in London – I hope to meet you there.

Lucy shares her story about starting Marcham Publishing, burning out, the global differences in titles for assistants, and how she’s working to standardize titling for assistants across the globe.

We also talk about AI and how assistants can future-proof themselves for the ever-changing world of work, and how the best assistants are servant leaders.

I’m thankful for Lucy’s support and that she shares her platform to help other EA speakers and trainers like myself share their message.

Enjoy our conversation!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

– Unknown (often accredited to Mark Twain)

This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.

– Hamlet
