I would have preferred the course to be a bit shorter, it was difficult to be away for 5 days when also handling work in the evenings. Some of the group work was fine - however there were too many sessions during the day. I would have preferred to have group discussions instead. I think it would have worked fine since we were a small group. I li...

Touches on a wide range of really relevant topics and creates awareness of where and how to improve as both an individual and an EA
Outstanding course - skilfully taking us assistants on an exiting and interesting journey to become Business Partners. All the business terms that I prior to the course didn't fully comprehend, is now clear to me, and that enables me to better support the business.
The entire training was very interesting and valuable. All topics were highly relevant for EAs and tools/models easily applicable in daily tasks. The trainer, Richard, kept a high level of good energy throughout the entire week and gave good explanations and examples also relevant for the delegates' specific businesses. Would strongly recommend ...

Ian Shipley is the BEST - he took a training that could have been boring and incorporated personal experience both personal and professional to make the class feel very welcoming and encouraging.
I took the ACEA certification training in Mar 2020. Ian was our trainer and he was excellent. He made sure everyone was engaged and kept our interest the entire time. Fabulous class - I really learned a lot
I truly appreciated the depth of knowledge. I will use useful tools and resources in my administration plan going forward.
If you're looking for a great EA course to help you in your EA role - look no further. This course has really helped me understand my role as a strategic business partner moreso, and how I can challenge and also add value.
The ACEA course is such an excellent one for any EA who's looking at a fresh approach to their role. The best part is you get to look at a business from your executives perspective and identify how you support them!
Fantastic course, awesome inspiring facilitator and a definite must for all EA's!!
An intense but very rewarding course, which introduced so many of the tools senior management is using in their every day operations and hence, making me as a C-suite EA better equipped to act as a partner to my Executive rather than "just" an admin. I left the course feeling more knowledgeable, inspired, and motivated to to do more - both for m...

I have attended a few courses specifically for EA's and have not really found any value in them. The ACEA course, however, has added tremendous value! The work covered is relevant to our everyday operations and is aimed at the EA to assist us to become true business partners to our Executives.
I absolutely loved the course and benefit quiet a lot in regards my position and JD. Would recommend for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge in EA position.
This course was very intense, informative and the materials are right on par with the title. I would recommend this course for any assistant new into the role or as a refresher for people who have been in the role for a long time. Thank you Richard!
I found the course incredibly useful and interesting. We covered things I was not expecting, like project management and governance. I enjoyed our group discussions, there were a mix of people, not all EA’s, the different insights into the business were fascinating. The trainer Jeff was brilliant, he was able to make everyone feel comfortable a...

Attending this course gave me some useful ideas on how to enhance my role as an Executive Assistant - and how to manage my Principal, as well as giving a detailed overview of how to project manage a task. The delivery of the course from Jeff was interesting, amusing and informative.
