HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Executive Assistants Organization (EAO) was launched in 2013 due to one former assistants unwavering desire to change the world of administrative professionals for the better. Unsatisfied with the choice of resources and the lack of support available for the industry, a quest for change began.
The vision was simple; to create an epicenter for like-minded assistants to congregate, collaborate, and share with one another, which would inevitably curate a movement followed by assistants around the globe.
EAO’s vision was soon realized.
Gone are the times where assistants are unrecognized for their herculean efforts within their workplace.
Nor does one need to feel isolated in their role. EAO brings assistants together on a regular basis during local chapter events, educational retreats, Behind Every Leader conferences, mentorship programs and 24/7 online forums.
Executives are continuing to realize these new breed of assistants are indispensable assets and by doing so, recognizing their worth by displaying acts of gratitude, showing respect and foreseeing a true partnership together.
Sharing knowledge is a key factor of the organization. Assistants accumulate a wealth of knowledge and expertise and rarely have the opportunity to share this wisdom with other assistants due to lack of interaction or camaraderie.
EAO’s philosophies state that in order for us to excel, we must collaborate, share knowledge and build camaraderie. Therefore, every member is a mentor.
EAO is launching chapters across North America, and soon internationally, to assist us on our mission to shed light on a profession that is somewhat; misunderstood by many. Our sole purpose is to provide support, offer cutting edge resources to nurture career development and celebrate the profession by bringing executive assistants to the forefront.
The organization’s growth and shared vision has reinforced that this profession is a valiant one, and one that needs nurturing in order to thrive.
Exciting times ahead!
