Hello everyone! My name is Nancy Fraze. I’m Office Dynamics International’s Reporter in the Field. I’m writing this from an airport in Northern California, where I am waiting for my flight. On the outside, I’m sitting down in the terminal but on the inside, I’m jumping up and down! All year long I’ve anticipated the 19th Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence, which starts tonight and runs through noon Friday in sunny Las Vegas at the most amazing venue: Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa.
The Conference kicks off tonight with a pool-side Welcome Reception — lots of hot music and icy cold drinks and plenty of opportunity to network with other administrative assistants and executive assistants from around the globe! The Office Dynamics International staff will be on hand and it promises to be a fun time to set the stage for the conference to come over the next few days.
The Red Rock Resort is breathtaking; it’s state of the art, modern, with attention to every detail for a pampering and luxurious experience. (We admins always book travel for others, and this is a great experience to learn more about the experience of travel and the way those “little important things” can make a trip truly spectacular!) Hint: carve out a bit of time to sit in the lobby lounge; bar to soak up the incredible atmosphere of the red red red everywhere and the gigantic crystal chandelier that hangs down in sparking shimmering light!
In case you’re not familiar with what to expect, you are in for a great experience at this conference! Lots of exciting and dynamic concurrent workshops with general sessions that are meaningful and give you many takeaways you can implement immediately the first day you return to your desk. I can’t wait to hear Joan’s State of the Profession, because so much has changed and keeps changing in our fast-paced techno-filled career path.
But first, relax and prepare to be entirely thrilled with this conference of conferences! The Office Dynamics International staff has been working all year to create a conference that will inspire you to live and work as the very best version of yourself. Joan handpicks the speakers and every detail of the conference is meticulously planned with YOU in mind. You will gain confidence, strength and walk away empowered in every aspect of your life
Best of all, I can’t wait to see Joan’s trademark surprises: each year she showers participants with fabulous surprises not to mention breathtaking entertainment experiences at the Gala Event that are the highlight of each year. What is in store for us this year? I don’t know, but I know it will be memorable and fun!
I look forward to seeing you there, so wherever you are as you read this (whether in an airport, as I am) or if you are already there sunning by the amazing pool area, prepare to experience an administrative conference like no other!
This year we get to Be BOLD: Mastering Exceptional Leadership ONE BOLD STEP AT A TIME!
