Courageous Help

Courageous Help is a podcast by Base that aims to explore how assistants are changing the world. Gone are the days of the Mad Men era, where every executive had a secretary outside his office. The modern assistant is challenging and expanding this role in a way that no longer ties them to their leader, but gives them a larger stake in overall business and personal success. We want to highlight and propel this shift in thinking and how the next generation of assistants can impact the workforce. 

Every other week, we have a conversation with a current or former assistant to explore the various ways assistants are challenging the status quo — from impacting global business practices to molding new career paths and beyond.

We’ve spoken to guests such as Lindsay Robinson, Monique Helstrom, Rowe Hoffer, Donata Boston, and more!
