Finding the perfect gift for your administrative assistant can be a daunting task since flowers and lunch no longer cut it. Today’s executive or administrative assistant wants a gift that is long-lasting. You might be thinking…. what about a cool coffee mug? Or what about a travel business tote or beautiful Levenger notepad and pen? Maybe you were considering a gift certificate to your assistant’s favorite restaurant or spa.
While those might be lovely gifts, they don’t really have the same impact as the gift of education. And the gift of education does not come easy or often for your assistant. In fact, thousands of administrative assistants will never attend an in-depth training program, conference, or take an online course because his or her company won’t pay for it. How sad is that when you consider organizations will easily fund training for their executives and managers? Yet, the administrative assistants who support them every day, rarely let them down and give with their heart, get little training.
If you want to be a stand-out executive with your assistant, I highly recommend giving one of the following gifts for Administrative Professionals Day or Week:
- Attendance at the 24th Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence (October 2017)
- Attendance at the in depth World Class Assistant™ Certification and Professional Designation program (September 2017)
- Conference On Demand with 10 hours of learning from dynamic subject matter experts focused on the administrative profession
- Online courses
- Books, Audio Programs and more
ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS WEEK IS APRIL 24 – 28, 2017.
