Inspirational Advancement, Professional Development & Career Pathways What Happened at the 10th World Administrators Summit - 24/25 October 2018
Eth Lloyd
  • I heard Eth Lloyd’s presentation at the Executive Secretary LIVE event in Auckland in 2017. She is an expert and passionate advocate in the field of professional development for administrative professionals. She speaks with conviction and from the heart. Eth shared her personal journey and took everyone in the room along with her. She has a calm, understated manner which earns the audience’s respect and attention. Her opening address to the World Administrators Summit in 2018 allowed a little more of her personality to shine through and set the tone for what was an incredibly productive event. I have been fortunate to hear Eth present on a number of occasions; her authenticity always creates a comforting atmposphere for her message to be absorbed by the audience.

    - Alison McKessar, AAPNZ National President, Wellington New Zealand -

  • As a former Executive Assistant, we were so excited to be hearing Eth’s first hand perspective on the history of the role and also important challenges facing our role, including information on how to navigate the latest tech and IT trends and tools needed to embrace the rapid change in our role.  Her approach to tackling these important topics came with great information and experience on how to address them.  She focused on how to succeed in the new digital economy and skills for surviving beyond the rise of AI. That learning is so important for the Executive Assistant and we must never stop.  We are so lucky to have Eth Lloyd, whose passion for the Executive Assistant role is so strong and we all look up to her as a leader.

    Eth added great value to our group event and I would highly recommend her for your administrative event.

    - Colette Walsh, SAP North America Core Admin Group -

  • Mrs. Lloyd is an engaging and motivational speaker. She understands our industry and customizes her engagement towards the event. It allows the audience to draw parallels to their own profession. The audience loved her. She was a true professional and made a real impact on our event … It was a pleasure to work with her. We would love to work with Mrs. Lloyd again and will recommend her highly to others, whom might be looking for a qualified speaker.

    - Monika Bercher-Pettersen, IMA Norway Fall Committee 2018 -

  • Eth is a simple, natural person with a passion for the job and a true ambassador of our profession.  She is the first English speaking presenter I have invited to IMA France. I cannot thank her enough for gently convincing, reassuring French assistants of the importance of our profession, and that language will never be a barrier to our personal development. Thank you, Eth.

    - Lizzie Jean-Nandjui National Chairman, IMA France -
