"My administrative team makes me more effective and amplifies my impact. In particular, my executive assistant anticipates my needs because she understands company priorities, my commitments, and the many relationships and demands on my time. Angelica's always one step ahead of me so I can be mindful of the task at hand."

                             Deanna Mulligan, CEO Guardian Life Insurance

Longing for more peace of mind at work?  Feeling like there HAS to be a better way to get things done?  Do you know (and possibly envy) those Executives and Assistants thriving in powerful, productive, and profitable dream team partnerships?  

If this sounds like something you’ve thought about time and time again, then you must join us on October 24th for this first-ever workshop summit created for BOTH Executives and Assistants in New York City!  This Breakfast Summit will be fast, content-rich, and it might very well be the start of a meaningful change your life. Your hosts, Bonnie Low-Kramen and Monique Helstrom, know first-hand exactly what it takes to build this powerful partnership. They lived it. They built it. And they are ready to share it all with you. 

Why does this matter, you say?

Because your partnership matters. And that partnership can change everything. 

Learn from expert Bonnie Low-Kramen, international speaker and former 25-year Assistant to Oscar-winner Olympia Dukakis, as she divulges the essential ingredients to build a long-lasting business partnership.Then gain strategies to create and maintain these ultimate partnerships from Monique Helstrom, speaker, implementation consultant and former 8+ year producer and Chief of Simon Sinek. Monique will unpack practical and achievable solutions that really work.

 In a rare meeting of the minds, you will also hear from two pairs of Executives and Assistants who pull back the curtain about those pivotal moments – the moments of success and the moments of failure – the real deal. This is a no-holds-barred look inside these powerful pairs working in organic harmony. The results? Peace of mind, more time to enjoy life, profits, and a road map for the long-term future. 

Special Guests
Deanna Mulligan, CEO of Guardian Life Insurance and her EA Angelica Canales
Craig Bouchard, CEO of Braidy Industries and his Chief of Staff Julie Kavanaugh. Hear first-hand how Craig never had an assistant before he met Julie and how their working relationship has increased profits, improved their own personal relationships, and, most importantly, allowed them more time and space to do what they each uniquely need to do.
