Simone White has worked in the administrative profession for nearly 25 years. She is the global chair of GAIN – Global Administrative Initiative Network at BlackRock, supporting nearly 500 professionals across APAC, EMEA, and Americas.
I had the pleasure of speaking at an event with Simone in Frankfurt, Germany a couple of years ago, and I’m so thrilled to have her on the podcast!
Simone talks about how we can help our companies value the role of an assistant, owning your role, how their large organization welcomes new assistants to the team, and lessons from her work building global networks of support for different groups within BlackRock.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
– John Quincy Adams
