Shelagh walked your walk for almost three decades. She’s been a direct report to CEOs and wrapped up her office career in 2018, after a decade supporting a board of directors. Assistants around the globe have been reading Shelagh’s Exceptional EA website (https://exceptionalea.com ) since 2013. They turn to it for Shelagh’s career insights, her Real Careers interviews with assistants, and for her Weekend Polls.

In addition to presenting for professional networks such as BBO PA, Shelagh has her own webinar series (https://exceptionalea.eventbritestudio.com/ ). A popular conference speaker, her client list also includes government, higher education, governance and business audiences, including corporations such as the NBA.

Shelagh is in demand internationally. She brings her authentic, positive and pragmatic approach and expertise to everything from meetings and minutes to resilience, perfectionism, communications, cybersecurity, governance, and strategic acumen.
