★ The Spark Featuring Keynote Chynna Clayton

The term assistant is not elastic enough to encompass all that the career requires. Assistants are the backbone of institutions. We are the thought partners and filters to some of the best and brightest in their respective fields. We are oftentimes exposed to excellence and adjacent to power at every turn.  

With experience as an assistant in corporate, government, and personal capacities, Chynna Clayton has felt firsthand the weight of power and responsibility that comes with supporting top executives. She has also seen the effects of misused and untapped power.  

In this keynote session, she offers her insight into making the most of the power that you yield as an assistant. She will discuss her experience and lessons learned supporting one of the most beloved global leaders of our time, Former First Lady Michelle Obama, and share her tips for having greater influence, building trust, and fostering an irreplaceable partnership that your executive won’t want to live without. At the end of this session, Chynna will open the floor to hear from you, taking questions and allowing you to share your own insights amongst this trusted community of assistants.
