I recently met Diana Brandl and she is just as amazing in person as she is on this episode of The Leader Assistant Podcast.
Diana and I talk about artificial intelligence and the future of assistants, what to do if you’ve taken initiative but are not being given a seat at the table, what we can do to help others value our role, and more.
Lean in, speak out, have a voice in your organization, and never use the word ‘sorry.’
– Trish Bertuzzi
