There are several benefits to attending an administrative conference with several peers from your organization. Here are just a few:

  • You and your peers are learning together and hearing the same information. Most likely you and your peers will attend the same session. When you see the same presenter, you can talk about what you heard, how to apply it, and also share your unique perspective of what you gained.

You took great care in selecting an administrative or executive assistant conference. Then you spend a lot of time and energy attending the conference. Now what? If you are like most people who attend conferences, you go home from the event and jump right back into home and work life; maybe toss your materials in the trash can or a drawer in the office (never to look at them again, even though you say you will.)

In reality, we should leverage our investment. Here are things you can do after you have attended an administrative or another industry conference:

A Conversation with Joan Burge

Over the past 20 years, I have attended several conferences ranging in topics from fiction writing to motivational to professional training and even a full weekend trying to become a more educated outdoor woman. Each conference offered a unique learning opportunity, but none of them provided the ideal balance of professional and personal development that last year’s conference did.

The Conference for Administrative Excellence not only provided many educational moments with a variety of speakers, but I was also introduced to some amazing people in my field as well. The conference exceeded all of my expectations.

How better to share the conference experience than a conversation with the creator herself – The professional, personable, and mentor to many, Joan Burge! I’m honored to have had the opportunity to ask Joan a few questions. Her answers are enlightening and encompass the experience that helps create one of the most respected conferences ever offered. I highly recommend reading them more than once (with a notepad!).

There is a team behind the amazing conference event. From the first phone call to register for the conference to picking up my name tag, the entire team carried out the professionalism of Joan. I never imagined my experience and learning would stretch so far beyond those few amazing days in October last year. We have so many ways to learn from Joan; webinars, books, blog posts, etc., yet here I am with another amazing opportunity to know and learn even more!
