Dismantling Assistant Stereotypes with John Shaw

For this week’s episode, we’re joined by John Shaw, Senior Executive Business Administrator to the Board of Directors at Microsoft. John has led an exceptional career providing administrative support to award-winning recording artists, major talent networks, and industry leaders, including marketing executives at WarnerMedia and the CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

John joins Courageous Help to discuss why boundaries are not a limiting factor to your success, how the most important functions of the EA role are what people don’t see, and tackling the stereotypes of what an assistant can do or look like.
