Florida here I come!
This summer I will be presenting at the AdminPro Forum 2016 in Florida and am really looking forward to it. Keynote speakers include Joan Burge, Lucy Brazier, Julie Perrine and Laura Stack. I have enjoyed the teachings of most of these ladies over the years and am thrilled to be participating with them and look forward to learning from them too.
Recently on Facebook on the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) page they had a question on what would be the ideal gift from your boss or coworker on Admin Professionals Day. Not surprisingly, many of the comments, including mine, were in favour of a chance to go on paid professional development. There isn't always a budget for professional development for administrative professionals, but given the nature of our jobs, we really do need a time to get our batteries re-charged, network with our peers and get some tips and tools to do our job better. I find every time I go to an admin conference I come back motivated and always learn something that I can bring back to the office to make my job easier or to share with a co-worker.
