The most important part of our role is to maximise the amount of time our managers spend on actual business matters so it is fundamental that we deal with their correspondence and in return they are comfortable delegating this task to us completely.
Some executives will freely hand this over to their assistants on day one, others may need a little coaxing and some will hold on to their correspondence with a steely grip and woe behold anyone who messes with their emails!

If I do not know what the meeting is about I will go back to the person requesting the meeting to ask for further information and either run this by my manager first or schedule the meeting depending on what information I have. To request more information, I ask the following: What is the reason for the meeting?
How long do you need?
Do you have an agenda? Do you have any paperwork that you can send through prior to the meeting? Can this be a phone call rather than a face to face meeting? Is my manager aware of the subject being discussed?
