Tonight I came home from work and per usual, hopped on Twitter.
I knew things would be kicking off in Sydney, Australia for #ExecSecLive. I immediately searched the hashtag and starting following posts from the conference.
Executive Secretary Live is a fantastic administrative conference that travels the globe. So many administrative conferences: IAAP Summit, AIOP ACT, IMA, ASAP Annual Conference, AdminToAdmin, EPAA,Office Dynamics, AEAP, Be the Ultimate Assistant, and this list is hardly complete! For a complete list, visit /http://executivesecretary.com/associations for an administrative association near you. Or, visit http://executivesecretary.com/events/ for a full list of training events. [Self-disclosure, I’ll be speaking at Executive Secretary LIVE, Johannesburg later this year.]
I get super excited when I think about administrative conferences! We are NOT alone! You have had a crazy work experience, and I can almost certainly guarantee you that another attendee has had either the exact same challenge or something very close. There’s an instant recognition. An instant acknowledgment of mutual respect.
That feeling is wicked awesome—and that’s a good thing! It’s such a relief and also a tidal wave of joy to meet our career colleagues.
If you are an administrative or office professional, I promise you with all my heart that you simply MUST find a way to get to an administrative conference. It will change your world, your perspective, and expand your network in ways you cannot fathom.
Here’s a tiny sliver of the friends I’ve made via admin conferences. As Diana Brandl says, “We are in this together!”
