The All-New Administrative Assistants Conference On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

You work hard every day. You deserve this amazing opportunity to learn, grow, and share with other great professionals just like you!

Course Description/Agenda

Come and join us for a celebration of administrative professionals EVERYWHERE!

You’re the number one support for other people – for your coworkers, bosses, vendors, and clients. You spend your time and your energy making sure everybody else has everything they need, but are you doing everything you can for your own professional growth?

It’s time you spent a couple of days focused on YOU – and your own career!

Join us for The All-New Administrative Assistants Conference and you’ll build success skills that will last a lifetime. We’ve absolutely packed this conference with informative sessions taught by nationally acclaimed speakers. You’ll attend an energizing opening session, get to choose from eight fantastic breakout sessions, and finish up with a closing session that will absolutely inspire you!

Imagine spending time with other administrative professionals in positions just like yours – sharing stories and trading tips with people who’ve been there, done that, and really understand how demanding your job can be. Use this time out of the office to reenergize and refocus and gain a fresh perspective on your priorities, your goals, and your career. It’s an experience that you absolutely don’t want to miss.

Treat yourself to a little fun and professional pampering. After all your hard work, you deserve it!

PS: Back by popular demand, we’re offering Day-Two Workshops that will help you master Microsoft Outlook and Excel! See below for more information on the great shortcuts, tips, and tricks you’ll learn in these optional post-conference workshops!

Expand Your Knowledge With the 2nd Day Workshops:

Morning Workshop 9:00 to 11:45a.m.
The Microsoft Outlook Workshop for Administrative Professionals
If you’re like many administrative professionals, you probably learned Outlook on the fly. You might think you’re using it to the best of your ability, but the downside is that you may be unaware of a whole host of options that would make your life easier! For instance, do you ever feel like it’s taking too long to sort through your overflowing e-mail inbox … navigating your calendar should be easier … or that keeping your contact list current is too much work? If so, join us for this post-conference workshop.

Attend, and you’ll learn how to …

  • Get dozens of time-saving tips and tricks
  • Implement e-mail shortcuts that make a real difference in your workday
  • Organize your e-mail so it’s easier to manage your overflowing inbox
  • Better manage your calendar and your boss’s calendar
  • Discover easy-to-use tips for setting up meetings and appointments
  • Use the task list to better organize your schedule and set priorities
  • Organize all your contacts – and your boss’s – and pull them up ASAP

Outlook may not be the most complicated of Office® programs, but for admins like you, it’s probably one of the most useful. Learn how some of its more underappreciated functions can save you hours of work each week!

Afternoon Workshop 1:15 to 4:00p.m.
Time-Saving Excel Tips, Techniques, and Strategies
Whenever we hold conferences like this one, we survey our participants about what topics they’d like more training for and without a doubt, Microsoft Excel shortcuts top the list! There probably aren’t many days in your job that you don’t use Excel, but that doesn’t mean you know how to maximize your effectiveness with it! Join us for this half-day workshop and learn how to use macros to save tons of time and reduce errors … create eye-catching charts and graphs that bring your numbers to life … make more professional-looking spreadsheets … and automate repetitive tasks!

Your agenda includes …

  • The most common Excel shortcuts, tips, and tricks
  • Using VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP functions
  • How to create attention-grabbing charts and graphs
  • Master essential techniques for creating eye-catching tables
  • How to transform any list into a useful Excel database
  • Cutting back on repetitive tasks with easy-to-use macros

Don’t waste another moment of your valuable time! Sign up for this workshop and you’ll learn how to use Excel and all its functions more effectively than you ever thought possible!
