This is a special Ask an Admin because it is time sensitive and we are helping a new executive assistant in Europe! So, administrative professionals from around the world, let’s try to help!
Katrien, from Belgium says:
I will start a new challenge as a Executive Assistant and I am very much looking forward to that. In February all colleagues (also the new ones) are invited at a company event in New Orleans, Louisiana. This means a long haul flight of 11 hours with 200 colleagues in one airplane. And a whole business week full of work and leisure events. I am a bit nervous though about a few things:
- How to remain professional at all times considering the long flight and tiredness/sleep it will involve.
- What to wear on the flight as I like to be comfortable but still professional.
- What to wear when casual is required at some events; I don’t like wearing “jeans and sneakers” at work.
Katrien will be taking that flight next week so let’s try to get all the information, tips, and tricks to her as soon as we can! Side note…congratulations on your promotion Katrien!
