Good episode? Give it some love!
Victoria Wratten is the CEO and Founder of the Executive & Personal Assistants Association. A legally registered, government approved, not for profit professional body for Executive and Business Support Professionals in the UK.

Victoria is a former award-winning EA with over 15 years experience across the public, third and corporate sectors. She is extremely passionate about the roles within Executive and Business Support and she actively encourages it as a truly fantastic career choice.

For nearly two decades, Victoria has been actively involved in the Executive and Business Support industry and have worked with EAs and PAs from across the world. Victoria regularly presents at events/conferences and mentor/coach Assistants and help them to truly excel in their role.

Our conversation today is not only about how Victoria started out in her career, the roles that have shaped and changed her but how life’s twists and turns can take you in unexpected but incredibly rewarding directions.

Victoria is so frank and open about her life and experiences, not just her mentors and the people that she’s worked with but also about Not Just A Girl’s Job which is a campaign that was launched to bring awareness to the men who worked in our profession. Every single man I have interviewed on the podcast has mentioned it and Victoria and speak about it.

It was a real pleasure to speak with her about her career and EPAA and I know that you’ll enjoy hearing about her experiences.

Some of the things we speak about:

💥 Victoria starting her career

💥 How important mentors are in your career

💥 The importance of realising your values in your career

💥 Being strategic in your career

💥 How opportunities find you
