What’s ELS Forum?

Glad you asked.

ELS Forum: DC is a unique event experience that brings together top executive assistants just like you to learn, connect, collaborate, and contribute solutions to your greatest challenges. One of the best things you’ll experience at this event is next-level networking. This event is a unique chance to expand your EA inner circle and make career-changing connections. Networking (aka friend-making) has never been so fun!

Mary Abbajay, President & CEO of Careerstone Group LLC, will discuss how to create effective organizational change as an executive assistant despite the fact that our professional lives are full of change and transition.

Erika Gilchrist, Founder & CEO of W.T.F: Women Thriving Fearlessly, will discuss the importance of having a pulse on what others are feeling and experiencing, using empathic communication to ultimately achieve organizational growth and success.

Sylvia Baffour, Speaker, Trainer & Executive Coach, will guide attendees through a proven four-step Resilience Model designed to provide them with a basic understanding of the building blocks of resilience and flexibility, enabling individuals to productively embrace change, uncertainty, and challenging situations.

Deesha Dyer, Founder & CEO, HOOK & FASTEN, will share her incredible journey from hip hop dancer and journalist to working in the White House as a Senior Advisor to the President. She’ll share stories and insight on how to confront imposter syndrome and thrive in high pressure workplaces.

Expect to walk away from this event feeling empowered and energized to tap into your strengths and prepare for success. This special experience offers support, training, and inspiration from expert instructors and powerful peers. Plus, you’ll discover a renewed sense of purpose, passion, and impact in your career.
