  Feedback about BTUA: 

"The power of BTUA is strong. I have attended three sessions over the years. The lessons that I have learned and the confidence I have gained have made me the successful assistant I am today. I highy recommend BTUA to a seasoned Executive Assistant or an Administrative Assistant who is just starting her/his career."

Ultimate Assistants

Ike Saunders "BTUA not only reminded me of my passion for the position I'm in as EA/PA,
but it empowered 
me to go into work the next Monday with vigor, confidence, and determination. I've always been happy in my role, but Bonnie and Vickie worked with me and every single person in that room to truly realize our potential as strategic business partners who work with our executives, not just for them.
I am better, more efficient, and more inspired today as an assistant thanks to the wealth of knowledge
and development offered by BTUA."

 ~Ike Saunders , Executive and Personal Assistant to Christopher G. Kennedy, Chairman of Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises, Inc., Chicago
