Feedback from the event

Don't just take our word for it. Listen to some of the feedback
received from past attendees.
Fourth year and still I am taking notes after 15 years in the job for a mid-tier firm. Not bad EAN - keep up the excellent work.
Lynne Lee- PKF Lawler
This is my first EA Congress and I didn't know what to expect. The event ran smoothly and on time. Great to hear and learn about other EAs' lives in a different organisation and relate to their challenges. We learned from each other's experiences. I left the event feeling inspired and want to be the best that I can be in my career.
Tammy Thomas- Fuji Xerox Australia
I hope that your organisation has employees with the same 'joie de vive' and attitude of excellence as displayed by the attendees of the EAN Network. If not, look no further than the Executive Assistant Network for resources; you won't be disappointed.
Jennifer Hill-LIXI Limited
What a fantastic two days. I was blown away at the calibre of the speakers and really did take away something from every single session. The dinner was great fun and I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet with other EAs from different industries. Apart from being highly skilled professionals, we all seem to know how to have a good laugh as well. Absolutely worth the investment and I have been telling all of my people leaders to send their PA's / EA's next year. Thank you!
Natalie O'Brien- CBA
A great place to foster relationships and exchange ideas. Overall, I felt motivated and inspired. Well done.
Shana Pascoa- AVCAL
I left the conference feeling a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm for my chosen career as an Executive Assistant. We hold the power to be inspire, to influence and to shape the organisation in which we work. I have never felt more empowered!
Carmen Ellard- Grand Pacific Health
Wow, what a great conference with so many fantastic speakers. I'll be encouraging our staff to attend. Keep it up EAN!
Sue McGrath- Australian Veterinary Association
Very worthwhile in attending as it was a great opportunity to network with other like-minded people. I found the speakers and panellists inspiring and helped me to understand areas of improvement and what it takes to become a great EA.
Laura Kon- Hassad Australia
The EA Congress was an amazing & inspiring event. This was my first time attending & I will be coming every year from now on. Met some fabulous likeminded people and the guest speakers were truly inspirational.
Louise McDonald- KinCare
A very professional and empowering event, reinforcing the value of today's EAs and PAs. Great speakers and relevant information to take back to the office and put into practice. An inspiring plus fun event. Thank you!
Angelica Luck- Lovatts Media Group
This was my third year at the EAN Conference and as always it was fantastic! The theme was great with fantastic and knowledgeable speakers. Networking and meeting new people/contacts is a great part of the conference. I can't wait for next year! Well done to the amazing EAN Team!
Anna Weinitz- Siemens Ltd
Oh My God. The value of the content we received and the calibre of the facilitators / panel members, would ensure that I never miss another conference. Well Done to the team at EAN!!
