March 4, 2021 | BBO Event Blog | Lucy Brazier’s ‘Being a Strategic Assistant’ & BBO Panel ” What Does An Exceptional ‘Assistant’ Look Like?”
Lucy empowered the network, discussed personal development, self-awareness, understanding the business you work for and most of all the importance of communication. Lucy feels, especially during the pandemic that this is the time to step out of your comfort zone and take flight. Your execs are busy trying to keep the company you work for functioning and solvent and it’s your job to rise to the occasion and provide the best and most effective support possible. Make your exec see how they cannot survive without your assistance, look at the bigger picture and don’t forget to think outside of the box.
Our March 2021 #BBOCSRChampion is Gilly Mulford. Amongst many other incredible initiatives, Gilly’s heart belongs to fundraising for The Abingdon Bridge (TAB). TAB is an Oxfordshire charity supporting young people in challenging circumstances aged 13-25 with anxiety, depression, trouble at work, school, in the family or in relationships. Feelings caused by losing someone close, having a baby, or breaking up. It could be abuse or other causes of low self esteem. TAB cover all of this and so much more. Referral through professional services is not mandatory which makes it far more accessible. Gilly is an incredibly inspiring, strong woman. We are extremely proud of her and feel humbled to have her on the BBO PA Network Committee.
What has been your greatest achievement to date in your career? What are you most proud of? MANDY: I have had opportunities to work in a number of countries i.e. South Africa, UK and Ireland (I was also an au pair in Spain many moons ago!). This has given me global experience, learning about and working with so many different cultures and in different companies. I just love travelling which helps!
