"Always be nice to secretaries. They are the real gatekeepers in the world." - Anthony J. D'Angelo

Become the gatekeeper of any office with a Diploma in Executive Secretarial Computer Studies

A secretary is often one of the first few people who you get to know well in any work setting. More so than the owner or CEO of the company, the secretary seems to know everything about who comes and goes, what needs doing and they are able to forecast a schedule well into the week ahead. For executive secretaries, the job is a little different as they are often in charge of handling matters of high-level confidence, interacting with high priority clients, vendors and suppliers that could actually make or break the organisation.   

Chances are, if you’ve been in touch with a high-flying CEO, that they’ve had a strong, efficient pair of helping hands to provide them with the necessary intelligence and support that they need to do a job. The skills that you will learn in the Diploma in Executive Secretarial Computer Studies, will equip you to become a pivotal part of any organisation. An executive secretary may even be asked to step in to provide IT support, build a website or even manage a company budget.

If you feel that you have the skills and personality to provide the necessary support structure to any organisation, and become the backbone from which all things operate, then a Diploma in Executive Secretarial Computer Studies may be just for you.
