Not Just an Admin

October 27 — November 17, 2020
Vancouver, WA 98662 

Who Should Attend:

Administrative assistants, executive assistants, business support professionals, or anyone in an administrative support role.

Webinar Overview:

Have you ever felt under-valued in your role as an administrative professional? Have you felt that others might see you as “just an admin?” Perhaps you have even thought that about yourself at times. In reality, administrative professionals play a critical role in any well-functioning organization, and you interact with all levels of the org chart to help achieve your utility’s mission.

Whether your title is administrative assistant, executive assistant, or business support professional, or if you are in the administrative support profession, this program will help you move past thinking you are just an admin and embrace your value, helping you to be seen as what you are: a valued and respected business partner.

NOT Just an Admin was created with you in mind by Peggy Vasquez, a best-selling author and speaker that has been in the administrative role for over 20 years. Chances are high that she has faced some of the same challenges you may be facing and has had some of the same questions you may be asking. Learn from Vasquez's experience and knowledge, as she shares both wins and failed attempts and the lessons learned from each.

This highly interactive, engaging, and fun training and development program is divided into four levels of learning all designed to help you, the administrative assistant, be successful. This program goes beyond the basic technical skills and focuses on you as an individual and professional.

Attendees will also receive a complimentary copy of her book, Not "Just an Admin!"
