Earlier this week I had my bi-weekly Toastmasters meeting and I was lucky enough to be the meetings Toastmaster and Table Topics Master. The Toastmaster picks the meeting theme so the theme for the evening was How May I Help You? As administrative professionals we assist on a daily basis. Helping others look good and move forward is what we do. It was fun for me to see what others thought of this role as we had gotten further into our meeting.
As Table Topics Master I got to pick some random topics and people to speak for a few minutes about my impromptu subjects. I invited a members up to address one of the following random subjects:
- Tell us who your favorite TV or movie assistant is and why they are your favorite.
- I’ve done a lot of random things as an assistant that fell under the “other duties as assigned” – what was one memorable out of the ordinary assignment for you?
- I’ve worked in a variety of offices as an assistant – what is the worst place you have ever worked?
- (I never got to this one at the meeting) If you had an assistant and could turn over one part of your daily job and never look back – what would it be?
So let’s hear from you – answer one of the “Table Topics” above in the comments section below.
