Executive Assistants Network Meeting "Perfecting Your Pitch"

Date: 3/14/2013
Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Philanthropy New York, 4th Floor, 79 Fifth Avenue, NYC.

Philanthropy New York is hosting the second meeting of the Foundation Executive Assistants network. This network is designed as a safe space to share and discuss the unique needs and challenges faced by those in the assistant role.  At this session in particular, we will discuss the art of networking. Your job is much more than assisting but somehow you don’t know how to convey this to others. This workshop will provide you with the tools to master any interview or networking event.

Led by two certified career coaches, Jen Schenkel and Jan Brown, this workshop will guide you towards Perfecting your Pitch.

At this Meeting You Will:

  • Get clear about the story you are telling with your pitch
  • Clarify what’s holding you back
  • Practice with your peers and receive feedback on your pitch


  • Jan Brown, Certified Life and Career Coach
  • Jen Schenkel, Certified Life and Career Coach


As always, creating a confidential space at network meetings is very important.  Please do not share specific details from the meetings with individuals outside the network.

Designed for

Members who serve in some capacity as an assistant to executive staff at a foundation.
