In the second episode of The EA Campus Podcast, we are thrilled to be joined by Suzie Ellams, EA, to the Co-CEO & CTO of OSTTRA. Suzie has been an Assistant for twenty years working at Elle Magazine, Burberry and now OSTTRA, a start-up Fintech company. In our conversation, Suzie shares tips on starting working in fashion and publishing.
Her decision to take a career break to start her family and how she now handles boundaries and prioritises her time. Suzie and Nicky talk about the importance of transferable skills for Assistants, and Suzie tells us about starting her new role during the pandemic and working in a hybrid environment. And of course, if her experience working at a fashion magazine was anything like the film The Devil Wears Prada!
