Marcham Publishing, specialist publishers of Executive Secretary Magazine has just announced their joint affiliation and partnership with Asemblr.com, the online event planning platform specifically designed for busy professionals to build and manage their corporate events more easily.
This collaboration gives both Asemblr and Marcham Publishing the ability to strengthen their service offering to the professional assistant community at large by providing another outlet for education and role development.
This ultimately will give this profession the confidence to drive technology adoption internally and increases the opportunity for modern day assistants to be given recognition as an indispensable member of their Executive’s team.
Effective immediately professional assistants can start booking meetings, conferences, functions, private dining, team incentives, team building experiences and private transport from the Executive Secretary website.
Lucy Brazier, CEO of Marcham is renowned for her dedication to the professional development needs of senior and aspiring administrative professionals. Now more than ever this focus includes encouraging her audience to embrace and adopt new technologies where it is relevant for them to do so.
Lucy Brazier commented:
“It’s always wonderful when a new piece of technology enables Assistants to free up their time to take on higher value tasks. Asemblr is a great addition to the armoury of any Assistant that books events. Not only does it save both time and money but it intuitively allows the Assistant to manage their meetings by automating the legwork at each stage of the process. That means no more spreadsheets or managing timelines and vendors manually. It’s really easy to keep track of budgets, what’s been discussed and confirmed, and what you need to do next.”
David Lovett-Hume, founder and CEO at Asemblr added:
“Just over 24 months ago we set out to design and launch event planning technology specifically for assistants responsible for organising and booking meetings, conferences, office parties, incentives and team building experiences. The ultimate aim of this being to significantly reduce the effort it was taking to find, book and manage event suppliers, give back control and visibility and saving time and event investment.
Partnering with Executive Secretary is a natural alignment of a shared vision and is an opportunity to enable the modern-day assistant to focus on building their brand and taking on higher value tasks as they arise, because of the time they’re getting back by automating a lot of the legwork of event planning.
We look forward to bringing new ideas, products, and valued solutions alongside Lucy and the Executive Secretary team over the coming months and would be delighted to assist in sourcing bespoke event supplier requests as an ongoing complimentary service too.”
Additional service benefits to Executive Secretary members will include Asemblr onboarding training as required, international FAM trip opportunities, opportunities to win places on Executive Secretary’s training courses and exclusive dining opportunities with some of the most renowned and respected thought leaders within the industry.
Both organisations look forward to an exciting collaborative 2019 fuelled by passion, training & education and empowerment for all of our clients and followers.
